Disney Adds Star Wars The Old Republic Synopsis to Timeline

The Star Wars timeline has been mapped out on a timeline by Disney and Lucasfilm, marking off key points in a galaxy far, far away. While most of the movies and Disney Plus shows take place in eras that everyone is familiar with, other eras in Star Wars have yet to be fully explored. During Star Wars Celebration 2023, Lucasfilm went as far as to show a graphic that pointed out key points in time that fans of Star Wars will recognize, especially if you’ve been following the franchise for a long time. One part of the Star Wars timeline included The Old Republic, a time when popular Star Wars stories like Knights of the Old Republic took place. But it’s only now that this era of Star Wars is finally getting some attention from Disney and Lucasfilm.

A recent update on the Star Wars website from Disney now has a brief synopsis of The Old Republic. Originally reported by StarWarsNewsNet, the update on the website has a complete breakdown of the Star Wars timeline. The section for The old Republic now has a small description that is made to be a good summary of the era. It can be accessed in the section titled “Eras” under the “Databank” section, where other eras on the timeline can also be viewed.

“The Republic is founded among the worlds of the Galactic Core… and the Jedi Order emerges to protect it. A schism within the Jedi leads to the creation of the Sith in this epic era.”

As of now, there are no official projects for either Disney Plus or films that are set within the Old Republic era. For many Star Wars fans, the Knights of the Old Republic games included many popular characters and stories that were viewed as some of the best Star Wars Legends content. Although there is a remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic planned for release on consoles, it has been heavily delayed and shelved by Embracer Group. Originally, the KOTOR remake was going to be developed by Aspyr Media until they were removed from the project in 2022.

Rumors of a Star Wars movie set in The Old Republic have floated around online for a long time, but have yet to come to fruition. While it’s great to see Disney and Lucasfilm acknowledging this era of Star Wars for fans, it’s disappointing how nothing concrete has been made. Hopefully, in the coming months or years, The Old Republic can be featured in a major Star Wars project outside of any comics or video games.
