Though we’re still several months away from closing out the Skywalker Saga with The Rise of Skywalker, Lucasfilm is already looking towards the future and tonight, it’s been confirmed that they’re indeed working on a movie based on Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic.

It’s been a long, long time since EA and BioWare first launched the cult RPG video game and over the years, we’ve seen two more additions added to the KOTOR universe in the form of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords and MMO spinoff, Star Wars: The Old Republic. However, despite intense demand from fans, we’ve still never seen a proper film or TV adaptation.

That’s all about to change, though, as the studio’s hired Laeta Kalogridis (Terminator GenisysShutter Island) to pen a script for a Knights of the Old Republic movie. The news comes from BuzzFeed, who note that the scribe is almost done with her work and there are already plans to turn it into a trilogy, granted the first outing performs well enough.

What’s still unclear is if this KOTOR film will be part of Rian Johnson or David Benioff and D.B. Weiss’ upcoming trilogy, or stand apart as its own trilogy. Given what we know about the franchise’s release schedule for the next few years, though, it certainly doesn’t look like there’s room for a third trilogy on the slate so we imagine the Knights of the Old Republic movie will fall to the Game of Thrones creators.

Then again, who knows? It’s too early to say for sure and again, it’s still a bit unclear where it’ll slot in in the grand scheme of things. Before we worry too much about what’s next for the series though, and how this Knights of the Old Republic film will play out, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is set to bring the current era to a close when it blasts into theaters on December 20th.
