RUMOR: Benioff and Weiss’ First Star Wars Film Focusing on the Old Republic and Filming this Fall?

Knights of the Old Republic is considered to be one of the most popular Star Wars story lines and timelines ever. What could make this even more popular among Star Wars fans? Make a movie trilogy!

According to StarWarsNet.com, it looks like the Game of Throne’s creators may be doing just that! Rumors say that this Old Republic trilogy will start filming as soon as this Fall! Furthermore, they claim that their sources have a 95% accuracy and they even went on to say:

…[Their sources were] approached about working on the next movie this Autumn. It is not the Rian Johnson trilogy, it is the Game of Thrones guys’ first movie, and it is set during the Old Republic, as Disney wants to open up the Star Wars timeline and appeal to a more ‘Game of Thrones‘ style audience.

To elaborate further, they asked for more info on the timeline and production status:

So the timeline is hundreds of years prior to the Skywalker’s, so think almost Star Wars meets Lord of the Rings.

Filming starts in the Fall and art departments are in design phases now as the script is being finalized. That is all I know but I am 95% confident that this is accurate.

As all rumors surface, take these with a grain of salt until Disney has officially announced these plans themselves. Until then, fans can only hope and wait that these rumors pan out. Check back here for the latest news, announcements, and rumors surrounding Star Wars.
