The galaxy far, far away has gotten a big shake-up. On Tuesday, a report from Variety revealed that two potential, long-in-development Star Wars movies are no longer in the works at Lucasfilm — Patty Jenkins’ Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, and an untitled movie produced by Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige. According to the report, neither project is currently in active development at the studio. Other Star Wars movies are still in the works, including one directed and co-written by Thor: Love and Thunder‘s Taika Waititi, and one directed by Ms. Marvel‘s Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and written by Watchmen‘s Damon Lindelof and Counterpart‘s Justin Britt-Gibson. Reports from last month indicated that the studio’s film plans could be unveiled at April’s Star Wars Celebration Europe convention.
Star Wars: Rogue Squadron was first announced by Jenkins herself in late 2020, and was initially poised to be released in theaters in December of this year. Various updates, including Jenkins’ involvement and then departure from DC’s Wonder Woman 3, threw that into question, with the project being moved off of Disney’s release calendar. Jenkins had teased late last year that she was still working on Rogue Squadron.
