Star Wars Film Updates: Rogue Squadron and Feige’s Movie Axed; Taika Waititi In Negotiations to Star


Since The Rise of Skywalker came out, Lucasfilm has been back at the Star Wars drawing board and having a complicated time pushing out the next phase of the franchise on the big screen.
Since Episode IX came out, two films have been officially announced by the studio — Taika Waititi’s untitled film, which he will be co-writing and directing, and Rogue Squadron, which Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins was once confirmed to be co-writing and directing too. They joined in the broad slate a previously-announced film by Alan Horn in late September 2019 which would be produced by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. This week we received an update on all three of these films via a meaty report by Variety.
