Bringing the Old Republic to Netflix?


It would likely be a fair assessment to assume that very few Star Wars fans don’t know the tales of Revan and Malak. Of the Jedi Exile, Kraya and Darth Nihilus….and too it would be not too far-fetched to assume that just as many Star Wars fans hate Atton Rand, but not nearly as much as Carth Onasi. tumblr_ma2t93ay151rouj0zo1_400

Fans of Star Wars the Old Republic recently launched a campaign to petition Disney and Netflix to make a series based upon the popular MMORPG. Based some 3,000 years before the Battle of Yavin, the Old Republic is tremendously popular in the fandom.

Jolee Bindo really deserves his own show.  The Star Forge, a massive Sith Empire….Malachor? Epic, Epic, and Epic.  Incidentally, in a recent episode of Rebels the protagonists Ahsoka Tano, Ezra and Kanan vist a Sith Temple on Malachor, could this nod lead to something greater? sithtemple2

The Petition, on Change.Org, aims to reach 150,000 signatures. To date almost 85,000 Old Republic fans have signed.


Will Disney cater to the fandom? We can only hope. It sure doesn’t hurt to sign the petition.
