Sources now confirm the Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic movie – and it’s a trilogy

Everything old is... well, it's actually still old.

Back in April, we covered Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy’s statements about the potential for a Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic movie. At the time, she confirmed Disney was “developing something to look at” but wouldn’t commit since she was concerned about the “cadence” of the franchise.

Welp, so much for that: Last night, BuzzFeed cracked the dodges and rumors wide open, with multiple sources confirming that a script for the planned movie is most definitely being written: by Laeta Kalogridis of Avatar fame. According to BuzzFeed, sources say she is “close to finishing the first script of a potential KOTOR trilogy.” and has been at work for the last year.

As our SWTOR columnist Larry Everett noted back in April, Star Wars fans have been in love with the Old Republic since comic books from the early ’90s that started with Tales of the Jedi and continued that love affair through the mid-aughts with the beloved BioWare video game Knights of the Old Republic, while modern fans are living out their antique Star Wars dreams in MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic.
