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?

For those eager to get their hands on a set of the Celebration Exclusive Darth Maul and Obi-Wan, a bit of history. For Celebration Orlando (April 13-16, 2017), the Celebration Luke went on sale April 25 (9 days later, or two Tuesdays after the show). Tomorrow will be two Tuesdays after the close of Celebration Chicago. To be clear, I have no inside info on their pending release via HasbroPulse, but bookmarking this hidden page may be helpful.
update: A few people have said that Hasbro reps at SWCC said that these may go up for order on May 4. That would coincide with a couple other Hasbro releases planned for that day as well.
