Disney introduced as of late that the following Celebrity Wars movie is Celebrity Wars: Rogue Squadron, directed by way of Surprise Girl’s Patty Jenkins. “This tale will introduce a brand new era of starfighter pilots as they earn their wings and possibility their lives in a boundary-pushing high-speed thrill trip,” mentioned Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy on a Disney Investor Day livestream.
Kennedy added that “The legend of Rogue Squadron has been lengthy loved by way of Celebrity Wars enthusiasts, and can transfer us right into a long term generation of the galaxy. Rogue Squadron can be launched in theaters Christmas of 2023.”
The announcement is, after all, gentle on main points, and it is simply one of the Celebrity Wars initiatives introduced as of late, together with devoted sequence for Lando Calrissian (no phrase on whether or not Donald Glover is again) and Ahsoka Tano, performed by way of Rosario Dawson. However Rogue Squadron is the one person who has evident roots in Celebrity Wars videogames and the outdated ’90s EU novels, which starred the flicks’ Wedge Antilles at the side of a complete host of unique characters.
The ones pilots won’t display up in Patty Jenkins’ movie, regardless that, going off Kennedy’s description. If it is set in “a long term generation of the galaxy,” that feels like it is going to be post-Upward thrust of Skywalker, that means the video games and books would possibly best be serving as (very) free inspiration.
