Lucasfilm Boss Reveals Star Wars: Rogue Squadron Is Still In The Works

Despite several delays and cancelation reports, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has reiterated that plans are still in the works for Star Wars: Rogue Squadron. Originally intended to be a feature film starring a new generation of X-Wing pilots adapted from the classic videogame of the same name, it seemed like a Top Gun-inspired Star Wars film would be a no-brainer with galactic dogfights galore. However, development of Rogue Squadron has been easier said than done.
Despite its removal from Lucasfilm's release schedule back in March, Kathleen Kennedy has given some updates in an interview with Empire Magazine regarding Rogue Squadron, a potential movie from Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, and Taika Waititti's untitled Star Wars film:
"Rian and I talk all the time, he just keeps getting more and more successful, and it keeps moving things back further and further. One day we'll figure this out. And Taika is working away. He's just, and he won't get mad at me for saying this, slow. We've got a couple of acts, we need a third. And [a] Lando [series] is still on the books, and Rogue Squadron [the Patty Jenkins movie that was announced in 2020, then seemingly nixed] is still on the books. We just want them to be great.”
Although Lucasfilm did a surprising 180 for Star Wars Celebration 2023 by announcing three new Star Wars films focusing on the "Dawn of the Jedi", a Mandalorian movie, and a movie set after the sequels with Rey starting a New Jedi Order, it's exciting to hear that those prior films are still in development (especially Rogue Squadron which seemed to be the furthest along).
