    In a recent interview with Collider for the promotion of Wonder Woman 1984 (see clip below), Chris Pine revealed that he'd heard about Patty Jenkins' Star Wars: Rogue Squadron long before it was announced, and he was even told the general idea of the story. When he was asked if he'd asked her to give him a role in the project, Pine said:



    Star Wars: Rogue Squadron was announced as the next theatrical Star Wars release back in Disney's Investor Day 2020, on December 10. The movie will be directed by Patty Jenkins, of Monster and Wonder Woman fame. The screenwriter has not yet been announced, but Patty Jenkins did hint that it was a high-profile male writer. While this has not been confirmed, I wouldn't be surprised if Jenkins herself got at least a 'story by' credit, if not a co-writing credit. While she did not write the first Wonder Woman, she did act as a writer for the sequel, and she has stated in interviews that she very much enjoys the writing part of the process.



    While the quote from Pine may seem like a small piece of news, I think it's rather encouraging to hear good stuff about the movie. While the reaction to Wonder Woman 1984 has not been as overwhelmingly positive as it was for the first one, I still think we are in for a treat when it comes to Patty Jenkins directing a movie in a galaxy far, far away. Her sensibilities as a director are not like anything we've had so far, and her passion for the project will elevate the material even more.



    Star Wars: Rogue Squadron arrives in theaters on December 22, 2023.

    'I had spoken to [Patty Jenkins] about, not my involvement, but the story. She talked to me about it, it sounds really, really great. ... If there's anyone that can reimagine and breathe fresh, new life into it, it's her.'
    Why is it that JJ was allowed to talk to his wife about the movie only and Petty Jenkins talks with Pine about it? Just wondering about the double standards...

    Probably because the ST had more imperative to be more secretive and surprising. I don't see it as a double standard depending on what the criteria for what they are allowed to say.

    ... or maybe after all the leaks we got when JJ was at the helm, Disney just doesn't care as much anymore, haha.
    And having Luke show up in S2 of Mando does prove that they can keep a secret if they play their cards right, I am well aware of that

    Also, Chris Pine as Corran Horn anyone?
