Knights of the Old Republic is some of the richest Star Wars media to date, but hasn’t expanded past its RPG platform. Knowing that a television show or film is in the works is exhilarating! Disney+ seems to be where many Star Wars films and shows are finding their homes. The Mandalorian, Cassian Andor, and The Clone Wars are just a few of the names that will be exclusive to the streaming service. It would come as no surprise if a KOTOR show were to become apart of that family.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will put a bow on the Skywalker Saga as we know it. As bittersweet as it is, it’s nice to know that the wide history of Star Wars can now have its story told on screen!
