At the Disney Investor Day event, it was revealed that Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins will be directing a Rogue Squadron Star Wars movie, with a planned release date of Christmas 2023!
The series 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, also referred to as Rogue Group, was a Rebel Alliance starfighter squadron founded by Luke Skywalker during the Galactic Civil War. They were named for Rogue One, the team of Rebels led by Jyn Erso who sacrificed themselves to steal the Death Star plans during the Battle of Scarif. The squadron was officially formed during the Galactic Empire’s attack on the Mako-Ta Space Docks and fought in a number of engagements, including the Battle of Hoth.
