    I would love a KOTOR era show series!
    I have played the game so many times, I even read many of the novels in that time era

    We Got This Covered is not a legitimate news source, so this is most likely not happening and this entire thread is therefore pointless.

    Wouldn't be surprised It's only a matter of time before they started tapping Old Republic material, though honestly I expect it to show up in the books or comics, or even animation before live action ever touched on it.

    Also: that'd probably the final death knell for SWTOR. Which reminds me, I really ought to get around to finishing off with my Smuggler, Inquisitor & Agent before they pull the plug...

    Thank you, I was just about ask about this.
    If we do get Old Republic era TV series, I doubt it would end up being related to the game. The shows have introduced quite a bit of new history for the Jedi and if we did get a show sent back in the Old Republic era, I'm pretty sure they would base it on those bits and pieces of history rather than the KTOR games and/or comics.

    I wouldn't hold my breath yet. This rumour circulates every now and then, like the Obi-Wan movie. The only real difference this time is that it's going to be on Disney's streaming service (previously it was to be on Netflix).

    Yeah, I thought the GOT people were supposed to be doing movies in that era, or something? :shrug:

    I know it's probably BS, but I would love for that to be true. Between the two rumors, I would rather get a movie series set in the Old Republic, just because a movie would be able to give us a bigger look at the era, and wouldn't be as limited in it's scope as a TV series would be.

    Are The KOTOR comics or novels good?

    Comics were okay. Nothing great, but there's entertainment value. The only novels I read were the Darth Bane trilogy, which is pretty good.

    I can also vouch for the Bane trilogy. And if you want to experience the KOTOR universe I suggest playing KOTOR 1 or the TOR MMO. The MMO is free to play and you can experience the classes up to level 60.

    I have read the Bane trilogie and I agree they are very good.
    KOTOR I have played maybe 20 times, one of the best games ever made, KOTOR Is ok.
    TOR I didn't like very much, gave it up after 10 + hours

    I don't know much about the timeline but would it be possible to see a young Yoda in this movie?

    Too far back. That era is thousands of years before Yoda was born. It all end maybe a hundred years before his birth with Darth Bane (which was roughly a thousand years before Episode One, and by Episode Six, you is 900 years old)
