The force is strong with Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins after landing the chance to oversee the next Star Wars movie.

She will direct Rogue Squadron for Disney and Lucasfilm.

The blockbuster, focusing on the fighter pilots made famous in the Star Wars films and set for a Christmas Day, 2023 release, will be the first in the franchise to be directed by a woman.

Disney and Lucasfilm executives are also developing another Star Wars film directed by Jojo Rabbit’s Taika Waititi.

The latest Jenkins news comes weeks before the launch of her Wonder Woman sequel, Wonder Woman 1984, on Christmas Day (December 25, 2020).
