Patty Jenkins (Monster, Wonder Woman) is going to direct a Rogue Squadron movie which is due out for Christmas 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.

Rogue Squadron was originally, the Rebel Alliance squadron founded by Luke Skywalker during the original saga timeline. I have no idea whether that will still be the case for the film, but I cannot wait to see some big screen Rogue Squadron action.

Jenkins will be the first woman to direct a Star Wars feature film and she wants to make “the greatest fighter pilot movie of all time.”

Check out the teaser below.

“It’s been a lifelong dream as a filmmaker to one day make a great fighter pilot film,” said Jenkins. “As the daughter of a great fighter pilot myself, some of the best memories of my life are of seeing my father’s squadron take off in their F4s every morning, and hearing and feeling the awe-inspiring power and grace. When he passed away in service to this country it ignited a burning desire to one day channel all of those emotions into one great film. When the perfect story arrived in combination with another true love of mine, the incomparable world of Star Wars, I knew I’d finally found my next film. I’m extremely honored and excited to take it on, and grateful to Lucasfilm, Disney, and the fans for extending that thrill to me.”

Jenkins’ next film, Wonder Woman 1984, will debut on HBO Max and in US cinemas this Christmas Day.
