Rogue Squadron, the Star Wars feature film set to be helmed by Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins, has been delayed indefinitely and will now take a lot longer to reach the big screen.
Jenkins, writer Matthew Robinson, and Lucasfilm have been working on Squadron for over a year, with production set to begin in 2022. It was supposed to begin pre-production before the end of this year.
However, due to scheduling complications on Jenkins’ end, the producers and filmmaking crew realized that Jenkins’ timeline and other obligations wouldn’t match with the window required to complete the picture in 2022.
Thus, Squadron has been taken off the production schedule and is being postponed. The hope is that once Jenkins’ fulfills her previous commitments, she will be able to return to the project.
But there is no guarantee Jenkins and the crew will all be available years later.
