Being a fan of Star Wars has got to be a great feeling around this time. With Star Wars Celebration 2019 in Chicago taking place over the weekend, it’s extremely difficult to contain the excitement that has been poured onto fans of Star Wars. While there are many upcoming Star Wars related content that have us on our feet, one thing to share excitement with one another is confirmation of development of a Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic project.
The development of the project was confirmed by the president of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy. The topic was brought up when MTV News caught up with Kennedy and asked about the heavily wanted project. Kennedy said the following:
“You know, we talk about that all the time. Yes we are developing something to look at. Right now I have no idea where things might fall.”
The interview raised a lot of questions, with very little answers. Questions such as, will we see Knights of the Old Republic adaption on the big screen as the beginning of a trilogy? Or will we see it adapted on Disney+, alongside The Mandalorian? Which is set to launch on November 12, 2019. This is news that fans of Star Wars have been wanting to read about for a long time now.

Another thing revealed by Kennedy is, Game Of Thrones creators David Benioff and DB Weiss are both on board to develop a new trilogy. They will be working closely with Rian Johnson, who is also developing a trilogy for the Star Wars fans across the world. However, it isn’t confirmed yet what projects are being worked on, we do know that projects are in fact being worked on. Another thing we can be certain of is that an adaption of Knights Of The Old Republic is being developed. After Solo: A Star Wars Story tanking at the box office, it seems that Disney/Lucasfilm is being patient when it comes to releasing Star Wars content out in theaters. Which isn’t a bad thing, If Disney/Lucasfilm takes their time with releasing Star Wars content, rather than rushing things, the results are going to be over the top.
