Rogue Squadron removed from Disney’s release schedule

Star Wars: Rogue Squadron removed from Disney’s release schedule

Of all the new star wars projects announced during the Disney Investor Day presentation at the end of 2020, Thieves Squadron was by far one of the most intriguing. Director Patty Jenkins has promised to deliver “the greatest fighter pilot movie of all time” when the film finally hits theaters on December 22, 2023. But last fall, Lucasfilm scrapped its original plans to begin to shoot the film this year. It took almost a year, but Disney finally took Thieves Squadron completely off its release schedule.

This new update comes from Variety, which doesn’t say if the film has been scrapped altogether. Anyway, Jenkins has a few other projects to take care of. She remains committed to leading wonder woman 3which was originally scheduled to begin filming after Thieves Squadron packaged manufacturing. As far as we know, she’s still developing an untitled Amazon spin-off in the DCEU, which has yet to get the green light from Warner Bros. But given the recent leadership change at the studio’s highest level, this film’s status is murky. the best.

Jenkins also planned to lead a Cleopatra film starring Gal Gadot until last year when she demoted to the role of executive producer. Kari Skogland (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) then signed on to take Jenkins’ place in the director’s chair.

Several other upcoming Disney projects are also getting new dates in the schedule. Studio live action White as snow remake starring Rachel Zegler and Gadot will now hit theaters on March 22, 2024. Additionally, the Haunted house the reboot will arrive on August 11, 2023. Even Marvel is affected by the version shake-up. An unnamed Phase 5 movie, which was scheduled to be released on February 16, 2024, will debut on September 6, 2024. This will likely make it the last Phase 5 entry to air before The Fantastic Four launches phase 6 on November 8, 2024.

By the time Thieves Squadron was announced, Jenkins had already been working on the film for six months. She was also writing the screenplay with Matthew Robinson. According to an early plot summary, the film would “introduce a new generation of starfighter pilots as they gain their wings and risk their lives in a high-speed thrill ride, and move the saga into the era future of the galaxy.”
