Patty Jenkins is claiming she is back at Lucasfilm working on her film Star Wars: Rogue Squadron. If you remember, back in 2020 Lucasfilm announced that the Wonder Woman director would be helming a new Star Wars film titled Star Wars: Rogue Squadron. Lucasfilm released an official teaser for the film, which featured Jenkins talking about what she hoped to accomplish and why she wanted to create a Star Wars film. (See the teaser below)

Jenkins says that the deal was agreed upon just prior to this summer’s strikes. Jenkins, who left the role in order to make Wonder Woman 3, told host Ben Mankiewicz on the TCM/Max podcastTalking Pictures, that she had signed an agreement to return to a galaxy far, far away. For their part, Disney has provided no further updates on the project since it was pulled from the calendar back in 2022.

“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.

Jenkins claims she is writing a draft of the script now. What are your thoughts on this news? Are you excited to see a Star Wars film like this? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
