Rogue Squadron will be the next Star Wars film to be released and will also mark the first feature film in the long-running franchise to be directed by a woman. Clearly, breaking through boundaries is part of Jenkins’ forte as she previously set a milestone when she became the first woman to helm a major superhero film, 2017’s Wonder Woman which went on to gross $821 million worldwide.

The story will introduce a new generation of starfighter pilots as they earn their wings and risk their lives in a boundary-pushing, high-speed thrill-ride, and move the saga into the future era of the galaxy.

Star Wars continues to create more opportunities for women. Along with Jenkins, Victoria Mahoney served as a second unit director on The Rise of Skywalker, Deborah Chow directed an episode of The Mandalorian and is currently steering the highly anticipated limited series Obi-Wan Kenobi for Disney+. Bryce Dallas Howard also directed two well-received episodes of The Mandalorian, including the third episode of the second season, titled “The Heiress.”
