Star Wars spinoff Rogue Squadron, helmed by Patty Jenkins, has been delayed owing to a scheduling conflict. Production was expected to begin sometime in 2022 but has been pushed in turn delaying the film's December 22, 2023 release.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jenkins has been developing the film with writer Matthew Robinson for Lucasfilm for over a year. The film would have gone into pre-production by the end of this year. However, with Jenkins' other projects and commitments, the production of Rogue Squadron has been delayed. 

Rogue Squadron was planned as the first big-screen outing after the conclusion of the Skywalker Trilogy in 2019 with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Variety notes that since then Lucasflm has focused on expanding the Star Wars universe on streaming with shows like The Mandalorian and the upcoming Book of Boba Fett, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor and Ahsoka

The Hollywood Reporter further writes that while is unclear what exactly Jenkins' prior commitments are but she is involved in the making of Wonder Woman 3 for Warner Bro and a Cleopatra feature for Paramount Pictures. Sources told the outlet that Rogue Squadron was scheduled for after Wonder Woman 3 was out, but now the plan of action seems to have shifted. 

AV Club writes that Rogue Squadron joins the list of many Star Wars films that have been delayed or shelved. These include a trilogy by Knives Out helmer Rian Johnson, and a cancelled Netflix trilogy by Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss,
