Adam B. Vary Senior Entertainment WriterThere is no shortage of television shows set in a galaxy far, far away.During Disney and Lucasfilm’s presentation at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, Calif., most of the time was devoted to introducing new series like “Skeleton Crew,” starring Jude Law, and “Andor,” featuring Diego Luna in a prequel to “Rogue One,” as well as long-in-the-works titles like “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” which premieres on May 27.But in contrast to the robust slate of “Star Wars” TV series set for Disney+, the franchise’s feature film landscape has been as desolate as the sands of Tatooine in the wake of 2019’s “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.” That’s surprising, since “Star Wars” is one of Hollywood’s biggest properties and the studio has a trio of untitled space opera movies set to hit theaters around Christmas every other year starting in 2023.

A year after “Rise of Skywalker” premiered, Disney announced during its 2020 Investors Day presentation that “Wonder Woman” filmmaker Patty Jenkins would direct “Star Wars: Rogue Squadron,” and the film would premiere in December 2023.

By November 2021, however, Lucasfilm delayed production, purportedly due to scheduling conflicts with Jenkins, who is also committed to direct a sequel to 2020’s “Wonder Woman 1984.”Yet in Vanity Fair’s cover story this month, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy admitted that “Rogue Squadron” would not make the December 2023 release date as Jenkins continued to work on the script.
