Knights of the Old Republic Film and TV show in active development at Lucasfilm?


    The future of Star Wars on the screen remains largely uncertain after The Rise of Skywalker . Lucasfilm hasn't officially confirmed any specific titles yet, but we know that they will differ from the Skywalker story we've been following for four decades. Now we have the floor that Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic will be a big part of this future as the studio not only develops a film set during this time, but also a TV show

    Before we dive in, we must be aware that this information has not yet been confirmed by Lucasfilm and is still in the rumor camp . However, Lucasfilm's president, Kathleen Kennedy, previously announced that a project by Knights of the Old Republic was in progress. So this seems to make sense. According to a new report, both a film and a TV show based on the popular video games of the same name are under development. Only a few details are available, so we don't know exactly who is involved in the creative side or which characters might appear.

    Previously, we had screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis ( Alita heard: Battle Angel ) was supposed to make a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic film, so it's possible that this is her baby. It was rumored that Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss wanted to make a trilogy that took place in the time of the Old Republic. Last year, however, the duo separated from Lucasfilm in terms of the creative differences. It seemed possible that the studio scrapped the idea, which is why this new report is partially important. And if it turns out that this is true, there will be a TV show that is no small feat. Especially considering how successful the Mandalorian was. At this point it is not clear whether the show adapts directly to the film or whether both projects tell independent stories that take place at the same time.

    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic commonly referred to as KOTOR life began as a video The game was released in 2003. At that time, today's "Legends" material contributed additional stories to the Star Wars universe. Lucasfilm reset the Canon after buying Disney in 2012, but the studio pulled lots of Legends into the new Canon. The story takes place approximately 4,000 years before the events of the original trilogy. The player's job is to fight a Sith uprising led by evil Darth Malak.

    The Rise of Skywalker Picture dictionary, worth mentioning, created by Darth Revan a famous figure from the Old Republic, canonical. That could be part of the sowing for storytelling at that time. We have also heard that Lucasfilm is planning stories that are in the era of the High Republic, which is about 400 years before the events of the original trilogy. So it's hard to say which comes first when both stories actually happen. The next Star Wars film is dated December 2022, so we should find out more at the Star Wars celebration in August.
