Patty Jenkins’ Star Wars: Rogue Squadron has reportedly been delayed due to “creative differences” with Lucasfilm.


Patty Jenkins’ “Creative Differences” with Lucasfilm have reportedly caused the delay of Star Wars: Rogue Squadron.

Star Wars: Rogue Squadron was supposed to be the next Star Wars movie to hit theaters not long ago.

It was supposed to start pre-production this year and start principal photography in early 2022.

The movie has now been postponed indefinitely, and its original release date of December 22, 2023 is unlikely to be met.

Though Lucasfilm has yet to comment on the matter, one Hollywood insider claims that the delay was caused by creative differences between the studio and filmmaker Patty Jenkins, and it’s unclear if the two sides will be able to collaborate again in the future.

Jenkins was frustrated by the micromanagement of select Lucasfilm executives, according to former THR editor Matthew Belloni, who eventually chose to pursue other opportunities while Lucasfilm worked to fix its internal problems.

“Of course, that’s not unusual,” Belloni writes in the latest issue of his newsletter, “but it’s a laughably recurring problem at Lucasfilm under president Kathleen Kennedy, say agents: Top filmmakers are dying to make a Star Wars movie—until they sign on and experience the micromanagement and plot-point-by-committee process.”

“It happened to the Game of Thrones guys, David Benioff and Dan Weiss, who were hired to create a new trilogy but walked away,” he continues.

Rian Johnson, the writer and director of 2017’s The Last Jedi, had his own planned trilogy shelved.

Jenkins wasn’t about to take no for an answer, and she has other projects on the go, including Wonder Woman 3 at Warner Bros., where she has more creative freedom.”

When Rogue Squadron was first announced, Disney made a point of filming a teaser with Jenkins, who would have been the first woman to direct a Star Wars film.

Jenkins’ last public comments on the project suggested the film’s script was nearing completion.

Jenkins told The Hollywood Reporter, “It’s going phenomenally well.”

“I’d been working on it for six months before even announcing it, so we’re pretty far along.”

We’re working on a script and putting together a crew, and everything is going great.

I’m really excited about the story and about the fact that we’re the next chapter of Star Wars, which is such a huge responsibility and such an exciting opportunity to try something new.

In… it’s a lot of fun.
