The announcement is somewhat of a formality, as the “Rogue Squadron” window to begin filming in time to complete the film by next December has nearly closed. The next big-screen story in the space opera saga has already been delayed in November 2021, due to scheduling conflicts with Jenkins.
As part of the schedule change, Disney has set release dates for several films, including the “Snow White” remake, starring Rachel Ziegler (March 22, 2024); “Inside Out 2”, follow-up to an emotional Pixar photo (June 14, 2024); And “The Lion King” is the sequel to “Mufasa” directed by Barry Jenkins (July 5, 2024).

“Rogue Squadron” was expected to be the first “Star Wars” movie to be shown in cinemas since “The Rise of Skywalker” 2019. Disney and Lucasfilm have been busy developing separate features for “Star Wars” – one with Waititi, another with “The Last Jedi” filmmaker Rian Johnson, and a third with Marvel boss Kevin Feige — but little or no information was available about any of those endeavours, so it’s not clear which of these will be the first to hit theaters.
