Female-Led Sequel To Joe Johnston's THE ROCKETEER In The Works At Disney

Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnston's beloved '90s adventure, The Rocketeer, is getting a reboot/sequel from Disney - but this time it'll be a woman under under the helmet...


According to THR, a sequel to Joe Johnston's cult classic, The Rocketeer, is in early development as Disney. Though they refer to the project as a "reboot-sequel", the story is set in the original continuity and takes place 6 years after. This time, however, it won't be Cliff Secord blasting through the skies, as the movie is to "be headlined by a black female character."

Max Winkler and Matt Spicer will pen the script, with Brigham Taylor, Blake Griffin and Ryan Kalil on board as producers. The follow-up with actually be titled The Rocketeers, and you can check out a synopsis below.


Set six years after the original Rocketeer and after Secord has vanished while fighting the Nazis, an unlikely new hero emerges: a young African–American female pilot, who takes up the mantle of Rocketeer in an attempt to stop an ambitious and corrupt rocket scientist from stealing jetpack technology in what could prove to be a turning point in the Cold War.
