Star Wars: Rogue Squadronthe previously announced film from Dream lady director Patty Jenkins, has been taken off the release schedule by The Walt Disney Company.

The film, which takes its name from the critically acclaimed video game series, was set to be released on December 22, 2023. In order to reach that date, production would have to start any time now.

Since there is no replacement date, Variety reports, that makes the status of the film up in limbo.

Disney has set release dates for films up until the summer of 2024, with none of the others announced Star Wars films from Taika Waititi, Kevin Feige or Rian Johnson date rather.

What we do have are newly announced release dates for Waititi’s sports comedy Next goal wins (April 21, 2023), The Haunted Mansion (August 11, 2023), Animated Film Wish (November 22, 2023), Pixars Elio (March 1, 2024), the Snow white remake (March 22, 2024), Inside out 2 (June 14, 2024) and Mufasa (July 5, 2024).

An untitled Marvel film has also been moved from February 16, 2024 to September 6, 2024.

Obviously, all of these release dates are subject to change, as some of them have been. They are also US specific, as the UK sometimes gets House of Mouse movies a few days early.

There hasn’t been one Star Wars film released in cinemas since the 2019s The Rise of Skywalker came out to a poor reception, although it still performed very well at the box office.

The franchise has focused on its Disney+ shows in the meantime, with Kenobi actually being a planned film, or trilogy of films, that was turned into a television series.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and the entire Skywalker Saga is available on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K now, as well as on Disney+.
