‘Star Wars: Rogue Squadron‘ Delayed Indefinitely by Lucasfilm. Star Wars fans were excited to hear about a multitude of Star Wars projects that were in the works for the studio, and one that had crowds buzzing was the mysterious new title Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, one of the first films to feature a story that would give fans insight into the Rebel Alliance fighter pilots.
To top it all off, Lucasfilm announced that Director and Writer Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman) would be leading the story and directing the film. As more production delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic continue to plague studios worldwide, Lucasfilm has opted to remove Rogue Squadron from their current production list as Jenkins focuses on other projects that are sorely behind schedule.
Jenkins is still thrilled by the project and promises to deliver “the best fighter pilot movie of all time” for a very special reason: Her Father. “I love to move fast and speed of any kind,” Jenkins shared when the film was first announced. “I think that that’s because I grew up the daughter of a great fighter pilot and every day I would wake up and go outside and look up and see my father and his squadron taking off in their F4s, whirring across the sky, and it was the most thrilling thing I still have experienced in my entire life. So when he lost his life in service to this country, it ignited a desire in me to turn all of that tragedy and thrill into one day making the greatest fighter pilot movie of all time.”
This removal from the current Lucasfilm production schedule does not mean the film will never see the silver screen, but it does mean Star Wars fans are going to have to wait and see if the movie will move forward in the future.
