    Harvey James played an unnamed German pilot in Wonder Woman so obviously his role in Rogue Squadron is practically confirmed.

    Just a note... the fact that I said "Tom Cruise as Maverick" should have made it clear that I was joking. :p

    I don't think I've watched that since it was in theaters. Maybe I'll give it another look.

    Jeff Bridges as the grumpy mentor who trains new pilots.
    Dennis Lawson as Wedge of course.
    Emma Stone as the hotshot upstart (think Maverick since he was mentioned earlier)
    Hugh Laurie as the lead villain (think Imperial admiral)
    Chris Evans as the lead villain pilot
    Idris Elba in whatever role he wants.

    Yeah yeah. That's a common cop out, the "joking" bit. He who denied it supplied it.

    I understand though. I'd be embarrassed too if I had been publicly exposed as a closet Tom Cruise fanboy.

    We will keep try hard to keep a straight face about it though, I promise, we will try not to laugh......

    Alexandra Shipp as your new recruit.
    Mary Winstead as a cocky Han Solo type.
    Mahershala Ali as the wise captain who's killed off in the second act
    Steven Yeun as a dorky love interest
    David Thewlis as the main villain
    Gal Gadot as some badass alien bounty hunter who is really pulling the strings.
    Lee Pace as young Wedge (flashback)

    One does not simply joke about Tom Cruise in Star Wars.

    If this is after TRoS, I could see Poe coming back as a veteran teaching a new batch of pilots. I imagine they will have at least a couple of familiar faces.

    I highly doubt their will be any familiar faces. Thinking it will be a fresh slate.

    I think it's pretty obvious that we will have a Rookie Squadron of hot babes.
    Gal Gadot, Zendaya, Kim Kardashian...

    And a squadron of Veterans.
    Tom Cruise, Bruce Willis, Dolf Lundgren...

    And despite their conflicts, which anger their commander Idris Elba, they come together in the end to create the Rogue Squadron that fights off an Invasion of something or other, showing that Hot Babes and Old Dudes can work together to save the Galaxy.

    I don't even think we need the old dudes, just hot babes saving the galaxy. They could have some Jedi master that plays a role like Charlie, and the 3 babes are his angels.

    If anybody here reads the Black Sheep Squadron RPG, you just described the original B Flight, aka, Balzroth's Babes. [face_devil]

    They need to cast Tom Cruise just to keep people safe and social distanced! [face_laugh]

    Joint cameo team-up from Amy McGrath and Martha McSally to remind us the military industrial complex transcends partisan idpol.

    I wonder who the actual pilots will be? Will they draw from relevant source material and/or create entirely new characters?

    Or she could play a clone of Tallie. We haven't had any close looks at clone characters in the movies.

    Or put her in make up to play an alien. She'd be a beautiful Twi'lek.
