A Knights of the Old Republic Project is Being Developed by Lucasfilm

Lucasfilm could soon be exploring the Old Republic universe.

In what's sure to be exciting news for Knights of the Old Republic fans, Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that the people in charge of the Star Wars films and media haven't forgotten about the beloved video game series. Apparently, there are even some projects in-development.

Speaking with MTV, Kennedy told the outlet, "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 fall but we have to be careful that there is a cadence to Star Wars that doesn't start to feel like too much."

Knights of the Old Republic is a Star Wars RPG developed by BioWare set in a time period 4,000 years before the events of the Galactic Empire. But the video game helped popularize the era in Star Wars not often represented in the films or other related media.

Based on Kennedy's wording, whatever's in-development sounds like it's at the earliest stages of planning. "Developing something to look at" sounds like a pitch more than an actualized project, but at the very least it shows that Lucasfilm is interested in the era and video game.

Aside from the mysterious Knights of the Old Republic project at Lucasfilm, there is a lot happening with the Star Wars franchise in video games. EA is currently planning to release Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order from Respawn. As for the films, Disney is getting ready to release Star Wars Episode 9: The Rise of Skywalker, along with The Mandalorian TV show for Disney+.
