Matthew Robinson to Write Patty Jenkins’ ‘Rogue Squadron’

We have been waiting almost six months for more information about Rogue Squadron and now we have it. It was announced earlier that Patty Jenkins would direct but now we know that Matthew Robinson will be writing the project.

The hope is the pre-production to start in the fall of 2022 with Rogue Squadron dated for release December 2023.

The story will introduce a new generation of starfighter pilots as they earn their wings and risk their lives in a boundary-pushing, high-speed thrill-ride, and move the saga into the future era of the galaxy.

Robinson is highly sought after in Hollywood and is known for the live-action adaptation of Dora and the Lost City of GoldLove and Monsters, and has also worked on the Edge of Tomorrow sequel, Live Die Repeat and Repeat, which is in development at Warner Bros., and the Little Shop of Horrors remake also in development at WB.

Rogue Squadron will be the first Star Wars theatrical release since The Rise of Skywalker in 2019. The Star Wars universe has been focusing on Disney+ Original series such as The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett and The Bad Batch to name just a few.

We look forward to see what this film brings to the Star War story.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
