Are They Making a Star Wars the Old Republic Movie?

Star Wars has been one of the most popular movie franchises for decades, and fans are always eagerly anticipating any new films that come out. One of the most talked-about potential movies is a Star Wars: The Old Republic movie.

What is Star Wars: The Old Republic

Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) set in the Star Wars universe. It was released in 2011 by BioWare and LucasArts and quickly became popular among gamers and Star Wars fans alike. The game takes place thousands of years before the events of the original Star Wars trilogy, during a time when the Jedi Order and Sith Empire were engaged in a massive conflict.

Rumors about an SWTOR Movie

There have been rumors floating around for several years that there may be an SWTOR movie in development. Fans have been eagerly awaiting any official announcement from Lucasfilm or Disney, but so far, nothing concrete has emerged.

One reason for this is that making an SWTOR movie would require a significant investment of time and money. Creating a film set in this universe would require extensive special effects work to bring to life the various planets, creatures, and characters present in the game.

The Future of Star Wars Movies

The future of Star Wars movies remains uncertain at this point. After Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012, they released several new movies including The Force Awakens, Rogue One, The Last Jedi, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and Rise of Skywalker. However, after mixed reviews from fans and critics alike on these films, Disney announced they would be taking a break from producing new movies to reassess their approach to the franchise.

While there has been no official word on whether an SWTOR movie is in development, there are still reasons to be hopeful. With Disney announcing new Star Wars series and spinoffs for its streaming service, Disney+, it’s clear that the company remains committed to the franchise. Additionally, SWTOR continues to have a dedicated fanbase that would undoubtedly flock to see a film set in this universe.


While there is no official confirmation that an SWTOR movie is in development, fans of the game and Star Wars universe can continue to hope. With Disney’s commitment to the franchise and the popularity of the game, it seems like only a matter of time before we see a film set in this universe.
