Patty Jenkins, the director best known for Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman 1984 (both of which starred Gal Gadot, who has also just been slated to play the Evil Queen in Disney’s new Snow White movie), has had to postpone work on the upcoming film “Star Wars: Rogue Squadron” due to her prior commitments on other projects.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “it is unclear what if any of Jenkins’ commitments were at issue specifically, but she is in development on Wonder Woman 3 for Warner Bros. and a Cleopatra feature for Paramount”. Patty Jenkins did reveal that Star Wars: Rogue Squadron is intended to be the “greatest fighter pilot movie ever made,” and that her father (who was a fighter pilot) is her inspiration behind the vision that she has for the movie. If you’re a big Star Wars fan, however, don’t fret! While this newest Star Wars movie may be slow to get going, there are plenty of other Star Wars films or shows to entertain you on Disney+, ranging from The Clone Wars to Star Wars: Rebels or Star Wars: The Bad Batch. And, of course, don’t forget about the classic Star Wars films of old!
Lucasfilm is also still finishing up the third season of The Mandalorian, has the new Book of Boba Fett series scheduled for release this December (with some episodes being directed by actress Bryce Dallas Howard), and five other projects including Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor, Ahsoka (which will star Rosario Dawson), Indiana Jones 5, “and a series based on the 1988 fantasy adventure movie Willow”. There’s also Star Wars: Visions, the anthology series starring Disney darling Jordan Fisher, which is currently available for your viewing pleasure on Disney+! In addition, Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige and Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi are also both working on their own Star Wars movies. Until Star Wars: Rogue Squadron actually makes it way into reality, there’s plenty for Star Wars fans to enjoy!
