Over the past week, Disney and Lucasfilm announced numerous new Star Wars projects that we'll see over the next several years. This also includes the movie Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, in which Patty Jenkings (Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman 1984) will direct. But while the name of the film would suggest it, it is not based directly on the game series of the same name that debuted in 1998. Jenkins made this clear in a recent interview with IGN magazine. Although it serves as a source of inspiration, a 1: 1 implementation is not to be expected. There it says:

"In the movie Star Wars: Rogue Squadron we do something on our own with the great influences from the games and the books. There are a lot of things that are recognized and known about this topic. But yes, it is a story in its own right and me I'm really looking forward to doing it. "

According to this, Patty Jenkings and the rest of the crew are inspired by both books and the games of the Rogue Squadron series, but they do not want to implement them 1: 1. Instead, she plans an independent story, which will be thematically based on the already known templates. Accordingly, it cannot be assumed that the attacks by Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles on the outposts of the Empire will be shown in the film.

Further details about the film Star Wars: Rogue Squadron are not yet known – this also applies to the characters appearing in it and the cast associated with it. The only thing that is certain is that the premiere is planned for Christmas 2023 – in almost exactly three years.
