Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is arguably one of BioWare’s best games ever, and it’s even quite possibly one of the best RPGs of all time.
Last month, rumours began to emerge that Knights of the Old Republic might be getting a revival, though it seemed to be heavily suggested to be coming back as a movie.
Now just a month after rumours first hit, Buzzfeed reports that a KOTOR movie absolutely is happening, and it’s going to be written by none other thanAlita: Battle Angel writer, Laeta Kalogridis.
Last month, the head of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy said in an interview with MTV: “You know, we talk about [Knights of the Old Republic] all the time.
“Yes, we are developing something to look at. 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.
“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 really was an opportunity for that, and we felt that’s not going to work. So, we back 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.”
Her words definitely sound like she’s hinting at a KOTOR movie, and now it seems to be true.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is set about 4,000 years before the founding of the Galactic Empire, where a Sith Lord named Darth Malak is attacking the Republic.
