Since Disney purchased Lucasfilm, fans have been eager to see the Star Wars saga to go outside of the nine film period we are familiar with today. One direction fans have wanted the saga to go is backwards, thousands of years before The Phantom Menace in a period called the Old Republic. Now, Kathleen Kennedy has confirmed that Lucasfilm is developing something in that time period.
In an interview with MTV, Kennedy confirmed that “We are developing something to look at.” regarding that time period. Kennedy also discusses female directors and the return of the Emperor (Ian McDiarmid). Take a look:
