'Star Wars: Rogue Squadron' is originally scheduled to hit theaters in December 2023 but sources say that the premiere date could change

Production of Walt Disney Co’s next Star Wars movie has been delayed because director Patty Jenkins is juggling other projects, a source close to the production said on Monday, November 8.

Star Wars: Rogue Squadron is still currently scheduled to reach theaters in December 2023, the source said, but it is possible that date could change.

Jenkins, who directed two Wonder Woman movies for Warner Bros, is working on a third movie about the superhero as well as a film about Egyptian queen Cleopatra.

Rogue Squadron filmmakers had hoped to complete production in 2022 but realized it would not be possible to meet that timeline due to Jenkins’ schedule, the source said. Production has been removed from the 2022 calendar.

The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

Representatives for Jenkins did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Disney has other Star Wars movies in the works, including one being developed by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.

The company also plans to release several Star Wars television series on the Disney+ streaming service. Among them, The Book of Boba Fett will debut in December and Obi-Wan Kenobi is expected next year. – Rappler.com
