Lucasfilm is contemplating a Knights of the Old Republic movie

It feels like you can't move without falling over yet another piece of Star Wars-related news this week, and today is no different. In a recent interview with MTV, Lucasfilm's President, Kathleen Kennedy, spoke about the likelihood of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic getting some sort of big screen adaptation.

The interview, which took place at this year's Star Wars Celebration, saw MTV's Josh Horowitz, broach the subject with Kennedy. "You know, we talk about that all the time," Kennedy said. "Yes, we are developing something to look at. Right now, I have no idea where things might fall, but we have to be careful that there is a cadence to Star Wars that doesn't start to feel like too much."

So no, we really don't know what Lucasfilm is planning to do—if anything—with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic but maybe it's waiting for the dust to settle following the slew of recent news before hitting us with the next Star Wars announcement. 

Thanks, Game Informer.

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
