Here is all we know about Star Wars: Rogue Squadron

Space battles have long been a part of the “Star Wars” universe. Since the first time audiences saw Luke Skywalker step into the pilot seat of an X-Wing in “A New Hope,” the romance of seeing aircraft speed through the emptiness of space while dodging blaster fire has never worn off. Back then, Luke sat proudly as a member of the Red Group on a mission to destroy the first Death Star, and his success became a defining milestone in both the franchise’s ever-expanding history and the real world.

The majority of Red Group members, however, died in the conflict (Rest in Peace, Porkins), and from their ashes arose a new team: Rogue Group, which first appeared in “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.” It was more than just a stand-in for Red Group’s position in the Rebel Fleet when it was renamed “Rogue Squadron” later on. Rogue Squadron would eventually establish itself as its own brand. 

In the 1990s, the crew served as inspiration for the legendary flight game series “Star Wars: Rogue Squadron” for the Nintendo 64 and its sequels. Patty Jenkins (“Wonder Woman 1984”) will now direct a new “Star Wars” film titled Rogue Squadron (“Wonder Woman 1984”)

Which pilots will fly with Rogue Squadron?

As forthcoming as Disney has been about the release date of “Rogue Squadron,” the opposite can be said about its cast. No cast members have been announced by Disney, and it does not appear that this will change anytime soon. It is also unknown who the prospective cast members will play in this upcoming film. Disney has not yet provided any information. In a nutshell, we have no idea who will star in this film or when it will be released. But that doesn’t mean we can’t make wild guesses.

The mission of Rogue Squadron is to pay homage to the art of aviation.

While Disney has not revealed any plot details, the words of the film’s revered director do hint at a central theme that the film may follow. Patty Jenkins, the daughter of an Air Force pilot, aspires to make the perfect pilot’s film.

“When [my father] died in the service of this country, it sparked a burning desire to one day channel all of those emotions into one great film,” Jenkins explained in an article on the Star Wars website. “I knew I’d found my next film when the perfect story, combined with another true love of mine, the incomparable world of Star Wars,” says the director.
