Star Wars: Rogue Squadron movie will take “great influence” from the games
Disney and Lucasfilm announced this week that Patty Jenkins will be directing Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, for release in 2023. The film won’t be a straight adaptation of the classic space games, but the Wonder Woman director says they’re still part of the fabric of the story.
Speaking to IGN, Jenkins confirmed the movie will be based on a new script, drawing from the established legacy of storytelling around the Rogue Squadron. “We’re doing something original with great influence from the games and the books,” She said. “There’s a lot of things being acknowledged and understood about the greatness of all of those things, but yes, it’s an original story and I’m so psyched to do it.”
