“Wonder Woman” star Chris Pine said in a recent interview that he knows the plan for the upcoming “Star Wars” film “Rogue Squadron,” and it’s looking pretty good.

What’s going on?

Pine told Collider that Patty Jenkins, the director of “Wonder Woman” and the upcoming “Rogue Squadron,” told him her plans for the film and they’re “really great.”

  • “I had spoken to her about, not my involvement, but the story. She talked to me about it,” he said. “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.”

“Rogue Squadron” will likely focus on, well, the rogue squadron of Rebel fighters. The name is based off a group of squadron fighters who appeared in post-”Return of the Jedi” novels, comic books and video games.

Jenkins told Lucasfilm she is excited to push the boundaries with the new film.

“It’s been a lifelong dream as a filmmaker to one day make a great fighter pilot film,” said Jenkins. “As the daughter of a great fighter pilot myself, some of the best memories of my life are of seeing my father’s squadron take off in their F4s every morning, and hearing and feeling the awe-inspiring power and grace. When he passed away in service to this country it ignited a burning desire to one day channel all of those emotions into one great film. When the perfect story arrived in combination with another true love of mine, the incomparable world of ‘Star Wars,’ I knew I’d finally found my next film. I’m extremely honored and excited to take it on, and grateful to Lucasfilm, Disney, and the fans for extending that thrill to me.”
