Apparently Chris Pine knows Rogue Squadron‘s story and he says it’s ‘really, really great’. The actor who recently worked with Rogue Squadron director Patty Jenkins on WW84 was asked about her next project by Collider when promoting the Wonder Woman sequel. Whilst Pine was quick to reiterate his lack of involvement with the project, he did confirm that Patty had told him about the story.
“I had spoken to her about, not my involvement, but the story. She talked to me about it, it sounds really, really great. But I’m ecstatic for her, excited for what she’s about to embark on. If there’s anyone that can reimagine and breathe fresh, new life into it, it’s her.”
So it seems that Jenkins has a story in mind which she hopes to play out in Rogue Squadron. So far the script writer for Rogue Squadron has yet to be revealed. Though personally, I reckon a few teases could indicate Garry Whitta (Rogue One) is scripting. I guess we will find out as time goes on with that one, but Jenkins is not traditionally a script writer in addition to being a director. I would liken this to Steven Spielberg who had a lot of great ideas for movies, but never wrote scripts.

There is a feeling of real worry amongst fans of Star Wars. WW84, which was Jenkins third full movie has not been well received by the public. So far, those who I find more forgiving with their standards have labelled the movie as ‘not as bad as you’ve heard’. Those who I find slightly more cynical like myself have said it’s garbage. I have not seen WW84 yet myself, but I have read the script, some time ago. I didn’t particularly care for the story on paper, but you just hope the final product is better. I’ll find out myself when WW84 releases on demand in the U.K.
So Chris Pine knows Rogue Squadron‘s story, but he was hardly going to say it sounds bad. I guess we wait and see? Any thoughts below if you can.
