Star Wars movies by Kevin Feige and Patty Jenkins shelved

New movies within the Star Wars sequence from Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Surprise Lady director Patty Jenkins seem to have been completely shelved, with one other venture from actor-director Taika Waititi now trying extra seemingly, in line with a report in Selection.

Jenkins’ venture, often known as Rogue Squadron, was first introduced by Disney in December 2020 as a standalone movie about “a brand new technology of starfighter pilots … in a boundary-pushing, high-speed thrill-ride”; it was meant for launch in 2023 however has since encountered a sequence of delays. In November 2021, it was reported that manufacturing was delayed as a result of Jenkins’ commitments elsewhere, and faraway from Disney’s launch schedule in September 2022.

In December 2022, Jenkins mentioned on social media that, after the cancellation of Surprise Lady 3, Rogue Squadron was “in energetic improvement”. Nevertheless Selection quotes “sources with information of the manufacturing” that the movie is now not in energetic improvement on the studio.

A projected Star Wars movie from Feige can also be now not on the playing cards. Reviews first emerged in 2019 that the president of the Disney-owned Marvel Studios was engaged on a venture with Kathleen Kennedy, president of Star Wars producers Lucasfilm. In 2021 Selection reported that Loki author Michael Waldron had been employed to produced a script, with Waldron saying in June 2022 that he was “into it in earnest”.

Nevertheless, Selection now studies that Feige and Waldron’s dedication to Marvel and the Avengers: Secret Wars film (projected for launch in 2026) has meant their Star Wars movie is, like Rogue Squadron, now not in active improvement.

With no stay motion Star Wars movies since The Rise of Skywalker in 2019, Waititi’s venture, first introduced in 2020, is a powerful contender to be the following within the sequence to go earlier than the digicam. Having labored as a director on the profitable TV sequence The Mandalorian, Waititi was introduced to be engaged on a script with 1917 co-writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns. Few particulars of the venture have emerged, however in June 2022 Kennedy mentioned Lucasfilm had been seeking to release it in “late 2023”.

A “secret” Star Wars movie, directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and written by Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson, can also be within the works.
