1991’s The Rocketeer, which has something of a cult following, is getting the sequel treatment at Disney+, per Deadline, with The Return of the Rocketeer. The original Disney film was based on a graphic novel and followed a pilot who finds a jetpack prototype, becoming a superhero. The sequel will follow a similar storyline with “a retired Tuskegee airman” taking up the mantle. David and Jessica Oyelowo are producing with the former likely to star. Ed Ricourt (Now You See Me) is writing the script.
