Despite some rumors to the contrary, Patty Jenkins is still slated to direct Star Wars: Rogue Squadron which was announced with a release timeframe of December 2023.
At GalaxyCon over the weekend, a fan was able to ask prolific Star Wars author Michael Stackpole about the upcoming film. Stackpole originated the beloved series of Star Wars: X-Wing novels including the first installment titled Rogue Squadron. Stackpole’s X-Wing saga, alongside the work of Aaron Allston, is considered a fan favorite in the Star Wars Expanded Universe.
Here is the report from Star Wars fan and Twitter user @Jedi4Liberty about his encounter with Stackpole.
