While Electronic Arts may be deaf to the fan outcry for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 3, Lucasfilm appears to be on a very different page. New reports suggest a Knights of the Old Republic movie adaptation is in the works at Lucasfilm, with the final script almost written.

Laeta Kalogridis is allegedly writing the screenplay. Her previous writing credits include Alita: Battle Angel. According to Buzzfeed, Kalogridis is “close to finishing” the script for the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic movie, and she’s also eyeing up a “potential KOTOR trilogy”. Yes please and thank you.

A hard break from the current Star Wars movie saga would be welcomed with open arms. Knights of the Old Republic is set 4,000 years before the Empire was even a twinkle in Vader’s eye. A clean start while drawing on the Star Wars universe and BioWare’s excellent RPG could well be a winning formula.

As ever with these video game / movie cross-over shenanigans, don’t hold your breath until you know the cast is complete or you see your first trailer. The vast majority of these projects die on the vine or become stuck in limbo, and those that do get made are often terrible. Still, it was nice to see Detective Pikachu buck the trend for once.

And anyway, this is Star Wars we’re talking about. Lucasfilm and the bottomless pockets of Disney. Star Wars Episode 9 is due out later this year and Disney has said the franchise will be taking a backseat for a while so as to wear out its welcome. They’ve still got six (6!) movies in development between now and 2026, but that’s what Disney calls taking a backseat these days.

Do you think BioWare's sublime RPG would be ripe for a movie adaptation? Let us know!

with the amount of money the mcu has been handing disney, disney+ gonna roll over anything else streaming (i mean all that original kid stuff and cheaper than all the others, parents are gonna eat it up); disney needs to let someone lose on star wars and create the universe of movies we all want.
