Does anyone know if there have ever been plans to make make movies set in the era of KotOR. A movie based around the Sith in that time could prove to be very interesting, as would any movie based on games set in the era of the KotOR

    I highly doubt it, as those events are all Legends (i.e. non-canon). – Null Jan 8 '16 at 14:48
  • @Null Have they always been non-canon? Or is that just since the Disney purchase? If they've never been, do you know if there is any canon material based on the timeline for that era? – ShadyBaby Jan 8 '16 at 14:56

  • @H.Buckton - The KOTOR stuff has always been non-canon. – Valorum Jan 8 '16 at 14:58

While I'm sure there have been extensive discussions, the latest information is that there have been no formal talks regarding the production of a KOTOR film or a film set in the distant past of the Star Wars universe.

There were some unsubstantiated rumours in 2013 about Drew Karpyshyn writing a screenplay for LucasFilm but this was point-blank denied by him and since then, the KOTOR books, game and other properties have been declared by Disney to be remaining non-canon, making a film even less likely.

  • Thank you very much. I find it relatively annoying for Disney to declare great works as non-canon, especially pieces set that far in the past, considering they don't seem to be showing an interest in any of the timeline before the original saga. – ShadyBaby Jan 8 '16 at 14:58

    @H.Buckton - Can't really blame Disney for this one. The KOTOR games and books were always non-canon, Disney just confirmed that they were staying that way. – Valorum Jan 8 '16 at 15:00

    Amusing how KotOR and a lot of other legends non-canon is monumentally better story telling than 1-3, 1-6(haven't seen 7 yet) the cartoons and other canon. – Minativ7 Jan 8 '16 at 15:35

    @Richard Everything was canon until Disney came in. KOTOR and KOTOR2 had a set of canon decisions (and even face choices). Disney recently included Rakata Prime in the Visual Dictionary, so there's hope that maybe they'll realize the Game of the Year, groundbreaking series could make them some cash. – user40790 Jan 8 '16 at 17:08

    @Richard That's Disney rules. Pre-Disney, all official works were canon. – user40790 Jan 8 '16 at 17:14
