Knights of the Old Republic takes place almost 4000 years before the events of George Lucas’ original saga. BioWare released the successful video game in 2003. It tells the story of the Jedi Order standing against Darth Malak, who leads an uprising against the Republic.

After The Rise of Skywalker releases this Christmas, the next movie in the Star Wars franchise won’t arrive in theaters until December 2022. Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have already started working on it.
