Anyone who knows me or any fan of the Star Wars BioWare game Knights of the Old Republic have simultaneously felt the butterflies of euphoria intermingled with the relentless scorpion-stings of disappointment. Euphoria came from the narrative odysseys in the cinematic trailers they put out that felt more like mini-movies of epic scale and sheer emotive impetus. Disappointment because films like Solo: A Star Wars Story got signed off during what we suspect was a big roundtable meeting with half the people present were there for the fire snacks.
Nevertheless, we fans may have prevailed in the end as news comes that Knights of the Old Republic is being transcribed for the silver screen. It is being reported that Laeta Kalogridis, who worked on the Alita: Battle Angel and an upcoming Avatar sequel’s script, is “close to finishing the first script of a potential KOTOR trilogy, according to three sources.”
So it looks like a (new) trilogy is in the works based on Knights Of The Old Republic game.
And seeing that the KOTOR series weaved its stories around events which conveyed the age-old conflict betwixt the Jedi and Sith many millennia before any events in the Star Wars films, we expect the same to be for this trilogy. How that will work out for Disney + Lucasfilm, who often use the original Star Wars and its many tropes as a crutch in new films, is anyone’s guess.
