Released in 2003 for Xbox and PC, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic It caused a sensation among fans as a high-quality RPG adventure, loaded with jaw-dropping plot twists that were impossible to forget. In previous months we discussed the rumor of a possible remake for KOTOR and on the day of we confirmed it through the PlayStation Showcase, an event that also brought us surprises such as Wolverine, Spider-man 2, God of War: Ragnarok and much more.
The remake teaser for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic includes Darth Revan, the famous Sith Lord that fans have asked for years on an adventure for the big screen. The truth is that the stories of the Old Republic are highly guarded by Lucasfilm, and it is that they actually belong to what is known as the Expanded Universe or Star Wars Legends; remember that The Walt Disney Company declared everything done after 2014 as canon, so the stories of the old republic are in a more or less confused limbo.

The remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic It will arrive as a PC and PlayStation exclusive, something that Xbox users have not taken well, since the original title was published for their console 18 years ago. Neither Sony, Lucasfilm Games or Aspyr have commented on this, the decision is made and there is nothing the public can do about it. Will the remake feature the incredible details that the 2003 game brought us? At the moment no publication date has been announced.
Meanwhile, Disney and Lucasfilm continue to develop more content for Star wars on the big and small screen. Example of the above is the third season of The Mandalorian – 91%, which will not arrive soon and who had to face numerous development problems, including the departure of one of their actresses; Jon Favreau had to polish that script to the max to ensure that Din Djarin’s new adventures are up to the task. What will happen to the Mandalorian and little Grogu now that they live apart from each other? We are confident that Lucasfilm will get the most out of little Baby Yoda for years to come.
On the way is The Book of Boba Fett, a series focused on this character that will also include the appearance of Fennec Shand. In addition, Lucasfilm does not stop with other projects of great ambition such as the Obi-Wan Kenobi and Cassian Andor series, without forgetting another good handful of no less importance. The study found that the small screen is a good way to develop the universe of Star wars and so they will stay for a while.
On the other hand, Lucasfilm has been quite quiet about the films of Star wars that are on the way. It was previously revealed that Patty Jenkins and Taika Waititi are involved in a couple of projects, however we have had no news since last year. Fans will have to wait a little longer.
