Nope, probably b/c KOTOR's an RPG. Well, it would be a way to get another Star Wars movie in.

Not really a movie, but a TV series would be better IMO, like the awaited Star Wars live action TV series. It should involve some parts of the Mandalorian War along with Revan's turning into Sith.

^Yeah, tv series. Rick McCallum said that he wanted many series running simultaneously, one of which could be Kotor-era.

1. Game-to-movie adaptations rarely ever work, so I doubt there will be a KotOR movie.

2. This doesn't belong in The Unkown Regions.

Yeah, if they do the Mando Wars, they could slip the Exile into the story as well and cover the period leading to the Civil War by "series" end, with Exile taking a powder and heading for the hills.

Yeah, I've heard that. Would be nice, I think. Of course not an adaption of the game, but the Mandalorian Wars would be fitting.

That's why I think a TV-series based on the game isn't a good idea, IMO. The various choices the player has can't all be included in a TV-series, and creating a LS & DS series is not worth it, I think. A TV-series in the Kotor Era is something that could work. There are enough facts of the Mandalorian Wars that can be used in a TV-Series. The Kotor comics would surely help there.

Just watch the Kotor film that was made from the Kotor game itself, it's very good.

Nope,no kotor movie.The story from the game is way to long for 2 hours.Plus,immagine how cinical people would be,remember how people felt about the prequels,all the ranting(mostly from people who are casual star wars viewers).I think the kotor movie would be strictly fan-oriented)

I've wanted a KOTOR-era TV series for a long time. But it'd be hard to fit it in. If it takes place before the games, it might come into conflict with the comic series. It could take place after, but then it wouldn't be much different than post-Revenge of the Sith series that will be airing next year: a great Jedi purge, the remaining Jedi being hunted down, etc. On the other hand, it could be used as a supplement for KOTOR 3 in case they decide not to make it.

I definitely do not want it to be a retelling of the events of the games themselves. Those stories have already been told in the games, and being depicted any other way just wouldn't sit well with me. I had the same thing against the Dark Forces novellas.

I agree, a prologue series would be awesome. Have it start right before the mandalorian wars, and end with the Jedi defeating/capturing Revan.

Then have some comics bridge the gap between Kotor 1 and 2.

Even though I'm against the idea of a KotOR movie, he would definitely be the perfect choice for Canderous. Of course, Morgan Freeman would have to play Jolee, and the guy who played the Mummy would be a good Bao Dur.

KOTOR wouldn't do that well, due to the fact that most Star Wars fans are glued to the New Republic and the Empire comics, books etc. (And Besides, I think it'd be too hard to choose an answer to a question for the script out of 50 different possible answers)

Well, whatever they did, it would have to be done well, b/c there are a legion of critics probably skulking about ready to tear any effort apart for failing to live up to their gaming experience/preconceived notions about how a KOTOR movie should play out. Much like purists who hate movies for not being true enough to their own vision of the original source material.

Yeah, I agree too, Perlman's the obvious call for Canderous. Still, ain't holding my breath on this one.

I'm not sure whether a live action series would work to be honest, especially considering the cost of the grand sets and special effects we have come to expect of Star Wars.

Then again, a cartoon version of KotOR would feel like sacrilege... and animated series don't always work.


Edit: Yes, Edward Norton would be perfect for Carth!
