Patty Jenkins, the director behind Star Wars: Rogue Squadron has provided an update on how the next Star Wars film is coming along. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Jenkins shared where things are at and how they are going.
When asked how the film is progressing, Jenkins replied, “It’s going amazing. I had been on it already for six months before I even announced that, so we’re pretty deep into it. We’re finishing a script, crewing up, and it’s all going wonderful. I’m so excited about the story and excited that we’re the next chapter of Star Wars, which is such a responsibility and such an opportunity to really start some new things. It’s really exciting in that way.”
Jenkins was also asked about the consulting process with the Lucasfilm team. She shared that “There’s plenty of it. It’s an entirely different way of working. I’m on the phone with all of them and doing Zoom meetings with everybody involved in Star Wars all the time. I’m fairly free to do the story that we want to do, but you really need to know who’s done what, who’s doing what, where it goes and how it works, and what designs have been done before. It’s a whole other way of working that I’m getting up to speed on.”
Later in the interview, she seemed to also indicate that location scouting and more will be happening this year for Star Wars: Rogue Squadron. This film is scheduled to hit theaters on December 22, 2023.
