Every new Star Wars movie and TV show confirmed so far

GamesRadar Logo By Total Film staff of GamesRadar | Slide 2 of 17:            Release date: December 22, 2023                                        After what felt like an eternity of waiting, Disney finally announced who will direct the next Star Wars movie. Wonder Woman 1984 helmer Patty Jenkins will take the reigns on the movie due for release in 2023, titled Star Wars: Rogue Squadron                                         In a video coinciding with the announcement, Jenkins talked up her history with the Air Force and her desire to create the "greatest fighter pilot movie ever".                                        "The story 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, and move the saga into the future era of the galaxy," reads the official synopses.                                        Nothing else is yet known about Rogue Squadron but the name will be familiar to many. It is the title of an iconic series of video games that centered around Rebel pilots fighting back against the Empire.                                        Location scouting took place in Scotland on a Star Wars movie, though that was previously thought to be regarding Taika Waititi's movie. Jenkins has also revealed that the story treatment for Rogue Squadron is almost finished. “We're finishing the treatment, basically, which is pretty big," she said.                                         "So it ends up being like where you're fairly close to a well-along screenplay by the time I'm done with the treatment in my process. So yeah, we've been working on it for a while. It's going great. I'm super excited about it.” Whatever the case, things are certainly underway on the next Star Wars adventure coming to the big screen.                                        Jenkins was not the first person in line to direct the next Star Wars movie. Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were originally meant to spearhead a trilogy but were reportedly too busy making shows for Netflix after signing a nine-figure deal with the streaming service in 2019.                                         There had been rumors that the upcoming movie would be set a few hundred years before the first movie in the prequels, in the time of the Old Republic. The obvious source of inspiration here could be the Knights of the Old Republic video game series – and while Rogue Squadron won't tell that story, perhaps another of the following filmmakers' movies will.

Star Wars: Rogue Squadron is coming in in 2023

Release date: December 22, 2023

After what felt like an eternity of waiting, Disney finally announced who will direct the next Star Wars movie. Wonder Woman 1984 helmer Patty Jenkins will take the reigns on the movie due for release in 2023, titled Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 

In a video coinciding with the announcement, Jenkins talked up her history with the Air Force and her desire to create the "greatest fighter pilot movie ever".

"The story 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, and move the saga into the future era of the galaxy," reads the official synopses.
