Outside of an official confirmation of Taika Waititi’s Star Wars-related movie, the big news was a Rogue Squadron movie from Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins. In a video posted to her Twitter, Jenkins explained that she grew up around fighter jets, as her father was a pilot. While he ultimately lost his life in service to God and country, the thrill of planes was something Jenkins never forgot.
Rogue Squadron should ring a bell to videogamers, as it was the title for an extremely popular series of games wherein you could pilot various spacecraft like TIE fighters and X-Wings. I wouldn’t be surprised if this movie is basically Top Gun in space. It’d also be cool to see the live-action debut of a character like Hera Syndulla. The Star Wars Rebels character is a formidable pilot in her own right and is featured heavily in Star Wars Squadrons, a modern and spiritual successor to those old Rogue Squadron games.
