If you did not know by now Star Wars fans LOVE Knights of the Old Republic. The game is arguably the most popular Star Wars video game of all time. So it goes without saying when the head of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, states in an interview that they are working on something Old Republic related the internet is going to get a little bit excited.

As you can see above Kennedy does not stray away from the fact that they are work shopping something that deals with Knights of the Old Republic. While she does not go as far to say in what medium they are looking it is still exciting to know they are working on something.
If I had to make a bet on what this project will eventually be I would guess it is the Benioff and Weiss trilogy we have known about for a while. The reason I think it is this project and not a new one is due to the fact that both Benioff and Weiss clearly have some experience with a large story being told thousands of years in the past. I think a lot of their experience from Game of Thrones could help them tell a great story over a trilogy of films that in turn could lead to spin offs in other mediums.
