Our friends at Rebelscum have confirmed with Hasbro that plans to release Darth Revan in TVC for 2019 have been dropped. It’s possible one may be issued in 2020 but nothing definitive was indicated.
Amazon has finally activated the product link for the upcoming TVC Darth Revan (VC150). There is no updated image and it is currently out of stock but you can still order it and maybe it will fill at some point or maybe orders will get cancelled. It’s a crap shoot anymore with Amazon.
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?
In case you were late coming into the 6″ Black Series game, or missed them the first release, Entertainment Earth has preorders for individual figures from Wave 9 all priced at $21.99 each. Expected release date is August 2018.
Gentle Giant has revealed their next Star Wars Premier Guild Member Gift for 2017 – the Darth Revan Collector’s Gallery Statue.
Each limited edition, hand-painted piece is cast in high quality polyresin with crisp details in his mask, armor and dual lightsabers. This statue also comes individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity. This Star Wars: Darth Revan Collectors Gallery statue is part of our new series of 1:8 scaled statues, celebrating the last 40 years of the Star Wars universe.
