A Star Wars movie based on Knights of the Old Republic is reportedly being developed

  1. According to Buzzfeed, the movie is being penned by Avatar, Alita: Battle Angel, and Shutter Island writer Laeta Kalogridis for Lucasfilm. The report claims the script is nearing completion and would be the first “of a potential KOTOR trilogy.”

    Bioware’s KOTOR, which was first released in 2003, is still hailed as one of the best Star Wars games ever made. It’s set nearly 4,000 years before the movies and features memorable characters such as the murderous Hunter-Killer droid, HK-47.

    A second KOTOR title was released at the end of 2004, leading to many arguments over which game is better, there’s also the Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO that came out in 2011, which sees its next expansion, Onslaught, released in September.

    Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy said “We are developing something to look at," when asked about a KOTOR movie in April. “ Right now I have no idea where things might fall,” she added.

    There should be plenty of Star Wars content to keep fans happy in the coming years. The Mandalorian and a Rogue One prequel series are both coming to Disney+. There are also the three untitled movies set for release in 2022, 2024, and 2026, at least one of which will involve Game of Thrones writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

    This is what Star Wars needs. But it needs to tie up to a greater story line just like Marvel has done. The Star Wars IP is huge of juicy non-canon stories. Better than the bloody rehash **** they've done for the past 2 movies.

    Star Wars died when Darth Vader died.

    Meh. My first reaction was "how are they going to mess this one up?", and she didn't exactly inspire confidence...

    I'd rather see a true SP videogame sequel, as that (plus the story) is what made that so appealing...

    How many times is Hollywood going to milk the Star Wars cow? Seriously, it's getting ridiculous and proof they have no new ideas.

    I'm pretty sure they'll do a great job killing off any good stories still left in the Starwars universe.

    Might as well cancel this movie now, Shutter Island was terrible!

    Shutter Island wasn't bad. There have been a lot of other movies that were a lot worse.

    Revan is better than any useless boring villian that Star Wars-Disney could ever write
