The cover for the upcoming Visual Dictionary for The Rise of Skywalker has been revealed and on it, we get a great detailed shot of one of the Knights of Ren as well as an official name one of the new TIEs from the film – the TIE Dagger. Could these specialized fighters be for the Sith Trooper division? Rumor says yes, but I guess we’ll have to wait for official word of that. Click the image above for a closer look.
News has been kind of light regarding products tying to The Mandalorian which set to debut in November of this year. But I’ve come across a bit of info that shows that a vehicle from the series will be offered in the Vintage Collection. I’m not sure if it will be out this year, but if what I’m hearing is accurate, it will be worth the wait.
UPDATE: Pricing I have found for “Huckleberry Hoodboat” puts this item (currently) in the $100+ range for the US.
I’m told that THIS is the kind of thing we should be reporting, so here it goes. There are strong rumors swirling that a movie based on Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) is in the early stages of development! Buzzfeed News has an exclusive report that according to 3 sources, Laeta Kalogridis (whose work includes Altered Carbon, Shutter Island, Terminator Genisys) is writing the screenplay.
Kathleen Kennedy, was tightlipped when asked at Star Wars Celebration about a potential film or series saying only that “we are developing something to look at”. With the built-in Expanded Universe fan base that the KOTOR series has, this should be a no-brainer.
What do you think, should there be a KOTOR film or series of films? How closely should it fall in line with what has already been developed for that story – a direct interpretation or should it take certain aspects (characters, locations, etc.) pull them in and develop an all-new storyline around them?
The finds continue as I managed to local 8 new UPCs and Walmart SKUs for upcoming Black Series figures for The Rise of Skywalker, Jedi Fallen Order and The Mandalorian. Based on what I’m finding for new product, I think it is now safe to assume that the code “Oslo” is for Kylo Ren. More on that soon….
Update: “FO Cal” is Cal Kestis from the new game Jedi: Fallen Order
Update 2: Thinking linguistically, La Huck may be the female form of the code, and it would be Cara Dune.
Update 3: “LA” is a substitute for “live action” as this refers to characters from The Mandalorian
