There has been a lot of buzz in the Star Wars fandom about the possibility of a Revan movie. For those who may not be familiar, Revan is a character from the Star Wars expanded universe, who has become a fan favorite for his complex storyline and intriguing personality.
Who is Revan?
Revan is a Jedi Knight turned Sith Lord turned Jedi once again. He was originally introduced in the video game “Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic” (KOTOR), which was released in 2003. In KOTOR, players control a character who eventually learns that they are actually Revan, a former Jedi who had his memory wiped and was turned to the dark side by Darth Malak.
Throughout the game, players have to make choices that determine whether they follow the light or dark side of the Force. This allows for a very personalized experience that has made KOTOR one of the most beloved Star Wars games ever made.
Revan’s story continued in “Star Wars: The Old Republic,” an MMORPG released by BioWare in 2011. In this game, players can create their own characters and explore the galaxy during the time period 300 years after KOTOR. Over time, players learn more about Revan’s fate and even get to confront him as an enemy in one of the game’s story arcs.
Why Do Fans Want to See a Revan Movie?
Revan’s story is one of redemption and sacrifice. He started out as a hero fighting for peace and justice but was seduced by power and fell to darkness. However, he eventually found his way back to the light and sacrificed himself to stop an ancient evil threat known as The Sith Emperor.
Because Revan’s story is so complex and spans multiple mediums (games, books, comics), there are many fans who would love to see it adapted into film format. A movie would allow for a wider audience to experience Revan’s story and could potentially introduce new fans to the Star Wars universe.
Is There Going to Be a Revan Movie?
As of right now, there has been no official announcement about a Revan movie. However, there have been rumors and speculation that Lucasfilm (now owned by Disney) is considering it.
In 2019, it was reported that a script for a Revan movie was in development. In addition, actor Keanu Reeves expressed interest in playing the role of Revan during an interview with ScreenGeek.
At this point, it’s unclear whether a Revan movie will actually happen. Lucasfilm is currently focusing on other Star Wars projects such as “The Mandalorian” and the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series. However, with the success of recent Star Wars films like “Rogue One” and “Solo,” it’s not out of the realm of possibility that we could see a Revan movie sometime in the future.
Revan is an incredibly popular character in the Star Wars fandom and many fans would love to see his story adapted into film format. While there has been no official announcement about a Revan movie, rumors and speculation suggest that it’s something that Lucasfilm is considering. Only time will tell if we’ll get to see this beloved character on the big screen, but for now, fans can continue to enjoy his story through games, books, and comics.
