Rian Johnson Confirms His Star Wars Films Won’t Be Knights Of your Old Republic

Rian Johnson single-handedly just earned a bunch of nerd cred when simultaneously disappointing nerds everywhere with just one particular interview. That is an impressive feat. The Star Wars: The Last Jedi director confirmed to Mashable that his upcoming trilogy of Star Wars films won’t be based on the beloved game series Knights in the Old Republic. Take into consideration me on the list of possibly quite a few who did not even know that was an alternative, and now I want an Old Republic series of films. And even an animated show.

Anyway, here’s Rian, breaking hearts for great explanation:

“Oh, [fans] like Knights on the Old Republic. I played that game when it 1st came out and it was like, god, I loved it. Yeah, that’s a great game. And I have an understanding of it, the instinct to automatically visit some thing that you simply know and enjoy, that you’ve already noticed.

To me what’s truly entertaining is definitely the notion of what new stuff are we gonna see, what new stories can we tell?”

Johnson’s creativity rightfully shouldn’t be held back. It makes sense that everybody involved desires him to complete his personal point. But due to the fact Disney took over, the Star Wars canon has erased the Old Republic storylines, which signifies now is the fantastic time to begin building a thing in the 2003 game, as well as the present ongoing MMO. The truth is, if you would like to go and appear back at what is probable in an Old Republic movie or show, it is possible to often go on YouTube and see the complete campaigns and cutscenes from the MMO (and original game) reduce into a “movie.”
