Kathleen Kennedy reveals Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic movie or TV show is in the works…

April 19th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Great news for Star Wars fans hoping to hear news of a Knights of the Old Republic series or movie from Lucasfilm head Kathleeen Kennedy.

Speaking at Star Wars Celebration at the weekend, Kennedy revealed a few cool things about the future of the Force.

She revealed at we will likely see characters from the new movies again in the future even after the Skywalker saga ends – we’re guessing Rey, Finn and Poe – and that Disney+ may even be the way for that happen.

She revealed at Solo made them believe two Star Wars movies a year was too much. She revealed at female directors are working on The Mandalorian series and will be working on the Cassian Andor series too.

But most exciting, she revealed the a Knights of the Old Republic story could be coming: “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, 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.” (Watch the interview below).

A while back we heard rumours that Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss planned Staar Wars trilogy will focus on the Old Republic, so maybe there’s something to it after all…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
