It has been announced that Matthew Robinson (Monster Trucks, Dora and the Lost City of Gold, and Love and Monsters) will be writing the Star Wars: Rogue Squadron movie. Announced in 2020, it will utilize material from various X-Wing novels released between 1996 to 2012. Patty Jenkins will be directing it. She took to Twitter last year to explain how her father inspired her to take on the project. He was an F-4 fighter pilot who lost his life while in service.

Rogue Squadron will “introduce a new generation of starfighter pilots as they earn their wings and risk their lives in a boundary-pushing high-speed thrill ride,” said Star Wars boss Kathleen Kennedy. The movie is currently set to release on December 22, 2023.

    For as much as people complain about ep 1-3, that space battle in 3 and basically all of the light saber fights were fantastic.

    as for the rogue squadron movie, if they really pull from the Stackpole novels (a fantastic author by the way) the movie will come out really well.

    Too true. Darth Maul, Yoda and Dooku, anything with Grievous, thanks to family guy/robot chicken I’ll always think higher ground, there were many.
