Kathleen Kennedy confirms development of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is considered the best Star Wars game for many fans out there. The game was released in 2003 and is set thousands of years before the original Star Wars trilogy. It allowed video game developer BioWare to create new stories and characters while still keeping the tone of the Star Wars universe. There are a lot of fans begging for a live-action project based on the video game, and it’s been rumored that Game of Thrones’ David Benioff and D. B. Weiss is working on a new series that’s set in the Old Republic. Now we have Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy confirming that the studio has something in development.

Kathleen Kennedy revealed during Star Wars Celebration in Chicago that Lucasfilm has something in development based on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.

“You know, we talk about that all the time,” Kennedy tells MTV News. “Yes, we are developing something to look at.”

She then talks about how Lucasfilm is now taking it slow after Solo: A Star Wars Story’s box office disappointment, which echoes Bob Iger’s comment about how Star Wars is taking a bit of a hiatus after Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

“Right now, I have no idea where things might fall, but we have to be careful that there is a cadence to Star Wars that doesn’t start to feel like too much,” Kennedy added. “We don’t have a crystal ball. You know, we tried a little bit with Solo to see if we could do two movies a year and whether or not there was really an opportunity for that. And we felt that’s not going to work, so we backed off of that a little bit. But it doesn’t mean we don’t think about lots of different stories because that’s the exciting thing about this universe.”

In the meantime, fans can anticipate the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in December and The Mandalorian on Disney+ in November. And for the gamers out there, expect Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to come out in 2019 from developer Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind the Titanfall series and Apex Legends.
