Rogue Squadron, the upcoming Star Wars project directed by Wonder Woman filmmaker Patty Jenkins, has been delayed.
The film was scheduled to begin production in 2022, but that start date is not going to happen, which could also impact the film’s targeted release date of Dec. 22, 2023.
Jenkins and writer Matthew Robinson have been developing Squadron for Lucasfilm for over a year, with the goal of starting production in 2022. It was to have gone into preproduction by the end of this year.
However, sources say the producers and filmmaking team came to the realisation that Jenkins’ schedule and other commitments (including Wonder Woman 3) wouldn’t allow for the window needed to make the movie in 2022.
It is unclear if Lucasfilm will have another Star Wars movie ready to go before Squadron, but development continues on several; among them, one from Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige and one from Taika Waititi.
Lucasfilm is busy with Star Wars in the series sphere and has Book of Boba Fett debuting later this month, followed by Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor and Ahsoka, not to mention season three of The Mandalorian. It is also in production Indiana Jones 5.
