Kevin Feige’s untitled “Star Wars” movie is no longer in active development along with Patty Jenkins’ “Rogue Squadron,” according to two insiders with knowledge of the situation.

“Loki” writer Michael Waldron was writing the Feige-produced feature. Waldron is currently busy writing “Avengers: Secret Wars” for Feige.

“Rogue Squadron” was set to follow fighter pilots across the “Star Wars” universe, though no additional details were revealed. Lucasfilm announced the news about Jenkins directing the movie as part of Disney’s Investor Day presentation back in 2020.

Late last year, Jenkins addressed “Rogue Squadron” in a Twitter post and said: “I originally left Rogue Squadron after a long and productive development process when it became clear it couldn’t happen soon enough and I did not want to delay WW3 any further. When I did, Lucasfilm asked me to consider coming back to RS after WW3, which I was honored to do, so I agreed. They made a new deal with me. In fact, I am still on it and that project has been in active development ever since. I don’t know if it will happen or not. We never do until the development process is complete, but I look forward to its potential ahead.”

The next “Star Wars” movie is currently slated to be released on Dec. 19, 2025. With “Star Wars: Celebration” on the horizon, fans will find out which project will go forward.

The “Star Wars” project from Damn Lindelof, which has Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy attached to direct, seems to be the project in pole position to go forward.

Lindelof is best known as the co-creator of “Lost” and has experience in space — just not the galaxy far, far away. Lindelof produced J.J. Abrams’ 2009 reboot “Star Trek” and co-wrote the sequel “Star Trek Into Darkness.” Obaid-Chinoy is already part of the Disney family, having directed several episodes of “Ms. Marvel” for Disney+.

A rep for Lucasfilm did not respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
