Star Wars is taking a hiatus for the time being but it is returning in 2022 with a rumored High Republic film. However, our sources have told us that Disney is working on a Knights of the Old Republic show and movie.
Knights of the Old Republic, or KotOR, was an RPG developed by BioWare, who are behind the Dragon Age series. It was set 3,956 years prior to A New Hope, placing it before the rule of two and at a time where Revan and Malek were in their prime.
With the Star Wars Visual Dictionary confirming that Revan is canon, this makes perfect sense. For clarification, in Rise of Skywalker, Sith Troop battalions were named after key Sith figures, and the dictionary revealed that one of these squadrons was named after Revan.
It is a massive era with two video-games and various other EU content, which is exactly why they are planning to run with a TV show as well as a film, so they can cover as much as possible.
It is also an era that fans have been asking for quite some time, and trickles of it have been re-introduced over the years, but a fully fleshed live-action film may pull the skeptics back onto Disney’s side if they can pull it off successfully.
There is no word on when we can expect an official announcement, a teaser, a trailer or otherwise, but news should be coming out within the hiatus as Disney gear up to bring the films back to big-screens everywhere.
