Star Wars: Kathleen Kennedy confirms that they are working on something set in the Old Republic
There has been speculation that one of the upcoming Star Wars projects might be a film or series of films set in the time of the 'Old Republic' - before the time of the Jedi and the Sith. Now Kathleen Kennedy has confirmed in an interview with MTV that they are working on something in that time period.
When asked if they were developing any projects around Knights of the Old Republic Kennedy said, "You know, we talk about that all the time. Yes, we are developing something to look at."
It has been rumoured that the project D.B.Weiss and David Benioff are working on would be set in and around the Old Republic and would be more in the spirit of something like Lord of the Rings rather than traditional Star Wars. This would suit the duo well given their time developing and showrunning Game of Thrones.
