The idea of a movie based around Knights of the Old Republic isn’t exactly new. Last month, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy told MTV News that they are looking into it, although nothing was set in stone just yet. “Yes, we are developing something to look at. Right now, I have no idea where things might fall.”
The report goes on to add that there is a chance that these movies could end up being a trilogy, which is actually a bit ironic considering that we heard that Knights of the Old Republic 3 might actually be a long time coming. That being said, it is unclear who will be directing this rumored trilogy. Last we heard, the Game of Thrones showrunners have been tasked with the next trilogy of Star Wars movies, so perhaps it could be them.
As to when it might be released, we will have to wait quite a bit. Disney’s schedule of movies revealed that the next Star Wars movie following Episode 9 this year will only be in 2022.
