Rogue Squadron isn’t dead? Just what the heck is going on over at Lucasfilm? Do they even know? Do they just have a big lunch and then go back to the office and randomly green light more Star Wars movies?

Patty Jenkins appeared on the Talking Pictures podcast and she said they reached an agreement before the strikes.

Rogue Squadron was announced with quite a lot of fanfare, including a slot at a big Disney event that featured a roller blading Jenkins at an airfield talking about her family history in combat aviation.


Then, like everything else Lucasfilm touches, it all went wrong and appeared dead.

Jenkins seemed to be focussing on a third Wonder Woman, which was itself killed in the Gunn and Safran take over at DC Studios.

Here is what she said about her return:

“So, when I left Star Wars to do Wonder Woman 3 , I thought maybe I’ll come back to Star Wars after Wonder Woman 3 . So we did a deal for that to happen, started a deal, but I thought I was doing Wonder Woman.

When that went away, Lucasfilm and I were like, oh, we gotta finish this deal. We finished the deal right as the strike was happening. So I now owe a draft of Star Wars and so we will see what happens there. You know, like, who knows?

It’s hard, they have a hard job in front of them of what’s the first movie they’re gonna do. They have other directors who have been working, but I am now, you know, I’m back on doing Rogue Squadron and we’ll see what happens. We need to develop, you know, get it to where we’re both super happy with it.

Sounds like there is still some way to go here, so we won’t be holding our breath given Lucasfilm’s track record with getting projects into production.
