Not too long ago, rumors were swirling that Patty Jenkins‘ upcoming Star Wars film titled Rogue Squadron might get delayed by a year. It was originally going to enter production by 2022 and release in 2023. Yet, it seemed a new Old Republic-inspired film was fast-tracked while it was pushed back by a year. The Hollywood Reporter has now confirmed the delay due to scheduling issues with Jenkins. It most likely is connected to the quickly confirmed third entry of Wonder Woman and a new Cleopatra film. The film is currently taken off the release schedule, but there is no word if it even might release in 2024.
It’s never great news when production is pushed back, especially if you consider we haven’t had a new Star Wars film since 2019’s The Rise of Skywalker. At this rate, if we don’t get a confirmation on The Old Republic film, we might not get a new entry until 2025. Disney has been focusing more on their Disney+ offerings, which is keeping us covered until then. The Mandalorian has its first spinoff releasing in December with The Book of Boba Fett and there are quite a few others that may release next year. So, we’ll see what the future has in store for its cinematic outings.
