Back on Track

Jenkins said the following:

When I left Star Wars to do Wonder Woman 3, I thought maybe I’ll come back to Star Wars after Wonder Woman 3. So we did a deal for that to happen, started a deal, but I thought I was doing Wonder Woman.

She added:

When that went away, Lucasfilm and I were like, ‘Oh, we’ve got to finish this deal.’ We finished the deal right as the strike was happening.

She continued:

So I now owe a draft of Star Wars, and so we will see what happens there. You know, like, who knows? It’s hard. They have a hard job in front of them of what’s the first movie they’re going to do. They have other directors who have been working, but I am now, you know, I’m back on doing Rogue Squadron and we’ll see what happens. We need to develop, you know, get it to where we’re both super happy with it.
