“It's always been my dream”: the best science fiction saga will be able to count on a surprising new film – Cinema news

The “Star Wars” saga brings us an unexpected twist. “Rogue Squadron,” the Patty Jenkins project we thought was dead and buried, has finally been resurrected!

A dramatic twist in a galaxy far, far away! In operation for over 3 years, Rogue Squadron has risen from the ashes! The Star Wars project led by Patty Jenkins, the director of Wonder Woman, is not dead and buried yet.

“I initially left Rogue Squadron after a long and productive development process when I realized it wasn't going to see the light of day as quickly as I'd hoped, and I didn't want to push Wonder Woman 3 any further.”the director explained in December 2022 via a press release.

After the cancellation of Wonder Woman 3 due to James Gunn and Peter Safran's DCU overhaul, will Patty Jenkins be able to commit to Star Wars again? According to the director, the project has indeed been restarted!

Guest from podcast from host Ben Mankiewicz, the director confirmed her involvement with Rogue Squadron. “When I left Star Wars to do Wonder Woman 3, I thought maybe I'd come back to it later. So we agreed to make it happen.”Patty Jenkins confided.

Patty is back!

“When the project was abandoned, Lucasfilm and I said, 'Oh, we have to honor this contract.' We made the deal just as the Hollywood strike started. So now I have to preview Star Wars and I'll see what happens.”she continued.

“The studio is doing the hard work of bringing Star Wars back to the big screen, choosing which production to prioritize… There are other filmmakers working on the franchise, and I'm definitely going back to Rogue Squadron and We'll see how it goes. Now we have to develop project and see if the studio and I are satisfied with the result.”Patty Jenkins assured.

We have to develop the project and see if the studio and I are satisfied with the result.

Indeed, two projects are currently on track: Daisy Ridley's New Jedi Order, directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, and Jon Favreau's The Mandalorian & Grogu. “Star Wars is magnificent, the emotion that the saga evokes and what it represents is something very beautiful in this world, especially in the moment we are currently experiencing”underlines Patty Jenkins.

A dream come true?

“I've always wanted to make a movie about fighter pilots. It's always been my dream”, she concludes. Indeed, this project is very personal to the artist, his father was a fighter pilot in the US Air Force. When the latter loses his life serving his country, she decides to honor him by directing the best movie about fighter pilots.

To exorcise this tragedy, she went in search of the right story to tell, but to no avail… until now with Rogue Squadron. So, his wish is coming true soon!

This blockbuster will introduce a new generation of starfighter pilots. We'll follow them as they earn their wings and risk their lives in an exciting, fast-paced race. The latter push the boundaries and move the saga into the future era of the galaxy.
