I’m told that THIS is the kind of thing we should be reporting, so here it goes. There are strong rumors swirling that a movie based on Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) is in the early stages of development! Buzzfeed News has an exclusive report that according to 3 sources, Laeta Kalogridis (whose work includes Altered Carbon, Shutter Island, Terminator Genisys) is writing the screenplay.
Kathleen Kennedy, was tightlipped when asked at Star Wars Celebration about a potential film or series saying only that “we are developing something to look at”. With the built-in Expanded Universe fan base that the KOTOR series has, this should be a no-brainer.
What do you think, should there be a KOTOR film or series of films? How closely should it fall in line with what has already been developed for that story – a direct interpretation or should it take certain aspects (characters, locations, etc.) pull them in and develop an all-new storyline around them?
During Disney’s Investor Day Webcast, they revealed that the official launch date for Disney+ will be November 12. With that, the new Lucasfilm series, The Mandalorian will also be available. Subscription costs for the Disney+ service launches at an attractive $6.99 per month.
Following up on my deciphering of the identities of Episode IX characters, I found a listing on Walmart for Hasbro’s new line* of Lightsaber Academy lightsabers: “LSA LVL 2 London Lightsaber“. I think this further supports my theory that “London” correlates to Rey in Lucasfilm’s mystery box surrounding the final chapter in the Skywalker saga. Look for this item and more on Force Friday (October 4, 2019).
