06.07.2014 - The Old Republic: Rise of an Empire
After about a month and a half, and what was around 70 hours of work, the first poster in this series is complete. The intended story of this "movie" is the tale of Revan's fall to the dark side, taming of his apprentice, and rise of his army and empire through the discovery of the Star Forge. All of which are pre-cursor to Knights of the Old Republic.
Now for sale:
The first one being the aftermath of the Mandelorian wars, and Revan's fall. (This poster) The second would essentially be Knights of the Old Republic, showing Revan re-purposed and fighting Malak. Then the third would be... well... I've never actually played the sequel to the game, but I'm sure the story would work.
The poster itself is epic, very well done!
Turning it into a trilogy would work as well, the first movie could be about the Mandolarian wars with Revan disobeying the council and joining the war, the second would basically be the game KOTOR and the third could be Revan struggling to come to terms with re-discovering who he was and his mysterious disappearance or it could be something similar to KOTOR 2.
- Darth Bane and the Rule of Two.
- Revan as Jedi becoming Sith.
- Darth Plagious and Palpatine's up and coming (which would mean Darth Maul would be in there, too).
- The Greate Hyperspace Wars/the origins of the Sith/Jedi.
These all exist as proper non-cannon/EU, but I'd like to see them brought into light as films. Even if changes had to be made to make them fit the cannon-map of Disney, I feel the essence of the stories would be more than enough to create a strong film no matter how changed the bits of the story were, so long as the over-all arc remained similar. Finding out the player was Revan was one of the biggest moments in gaming history; Darth Bane's single-handed take down of an entire Sith order was absolutely jaw dropping. The Plagious book was a little dull at times...but the amount of intrigue and deception within that story could easily make for a House of Cards type film where there could be nothing but politics and drama, but every moment is so intense that you instantly care about things you never had anything to do with before.
Revan, Bane and some others would be more interesting in my opinion.
