    Now, hold on! I know, I know. This came to my head a while ago, but there are so many characters that could become canon. Think about it! If you played the game like me, you’d know! So much of that game really got me into SW.

    It would be amazing to see:

    1. Galen Marrack
    2. Rahm kota and his militia
    3. Juno and Galen’s love story
    4. Maris Blood/Shaak Ti returning
    5: loads of new canon planets!

    this is just a bad idea! But bad ideas just need more time before they become revolutionary!

    Gooood idea me likey. The only problem is that Galen marek is to op. They would have to nerf him. Also shaak T.I. died in canon I think in clone wars but they could find a way to bring her back.

    Oh, I though Shaak Ti’s death was not part of ROTS, but only a deleted scene. Are deleted scenes canon?

    Im sure that Starkiller would be am awesome character with quite the character arc. And the movie version of him would be very different than the video game one, considering in the games, you control the player. Starkiller would betray vader, then join Kota and his militia. Then, capture vader. Yatayatayata...

    I'm totally down for Starkiller! I was both surprised and disappointed that he wasn't worked into Rebels. My speculation at the time was that during Season 3 or so he'd be an Inquisitor that Vader would command to join the Rebels. Through them he would help unite the Rebellion, and he'd eventually turn good. Galen would also have a sort of sibling rivalry with Ezra over Kanan's mentorship and the two young men would turn into mirrors of each other - Ezra would slip further into darkness while Galen steps further into the light. (Looking at it now, this would have been a perfect opportunity for Maul to galvanize Ezra to the Dark Side...or at least deeper down the rabbit hole than he already went). I never got farther than that, but I still think it would have been a really cool idea.

    As much as I love Rahm Kota, Kanan has kind of filled his spot in the new canon. This would have to be the biggest workaround IMO, but I'm sure one could do so.

    I'm here for that!

    YESSS! Maris Brood was so cool with her lightsaber tonfas! ...then again, like Kanan and Kota, Merrin has taken some of the space that Maris used to have. Again, I think this could work in concept, but they'd definitely have to change her outfit...actually...what if SHE was the new Starkiller instead of Galen Marrick...? ...this could work...

    New planets are always welcome!

    Overall, I wouldn't mind a Force Unleashed movie! But I do think that the prime time to adapt Force Unleashed was in Rebels during Season 3 & 4 in order to bolster the story some. Maybe making Maris the main character would be a better decision now than Galen Marrick, but I'd love to see Starkiller return in some form or fashion as well...hmm...

    Thank you for your support. Im glad you agree with my many points. This movie would be hard to make, and I don’t it would be produced by Disney, but it is bound to be a story. Both Force Unleashed games were so wonderful! This movie would be great. Galen Marrick would be ever so cool to see. Who would play him, I don’t know, that is beyond me. But I am all down for Rahm Kota!

    There is a lot of tweaking that would need to be done, aside for Shaak Ti being dead, but otherwise I could see it being a very interesting film to watch. I don't agree that Galen Marek needs to be nerfed though, but it will be tricky to explain his absence throughout the rest of the OT and beyond, unless they pull something like the end of Rebels.

    I think it would be quite interesting to actually see the betrayal between Galen and his master, Vader. And of course the journey to the light side from Galen. And I fricken love Kota. If there isn’t a scene where Kota is drunk, you know from the game, all blind and all, Imma have a riot lol

    Lucas said that how she died, deleted scenes that are taken out just because the movie is too long are considered canon.

    Lucas clarified that it was the scene where Anakin kills Shaak Ti in the Jedi Temple that is her canonical death, not the scene where Grievious does it.

    Lucas didn't consider the games Canon, only the movies and TCW 2008 were a part of the Official Star Wars canon and Lucas also stated Vader never had an apprentice.
    Pablo Hidalgo confirmed this.

    As for the Force Unleashed:
    Pablo Hidalgo @pablohidalgo Q&A

    "He never considered it canon & was actively developing television material
    that disavowed it at the same time."

    ...................


    Pablo Hidalgo @pablohidalgo Q&A
    "It was gonna get into the origins of the rebellion (did a bit in Season 5). Starkiller didn't start it."

    .................................

    Pablo Hidalgo @pablohidalgo Q&A
    "Yeah, George's ideas about the origins of the rebellion were quite different
    from what the game proposed."


    ....................

    'Sorry, I've been unable to think clearly all day. I get it now. One last
    thing: what was the REAL amount of George put into TFU, in comparison to TCW.
    I know he didn't see it as canon, but knowing it would relax me.'


    Pablo Hidalgo @pablohidalgo Q&A
    "Minimal. He gave the okay to make the game. He never saw Vader as having an
    apprentice."

    Well ok, but you know, Lucas isn’t in charge of Star Wars anymore. Disney is. Any directors and producers, if obtaining the rights of everything, can do this. Its just speculation. And now that Disney bought out Lucas Films, everything from then is considered canon. Facts!
    --- Double Post Merged, Aug 1, 2020 ---
    Also Disney wanted to start with a blank canvas after Lucas made the deal. Of course keeping the import trilogies together. So, anything is possible. I know, I know. It is so unlikely. I don’t think it will happen, but you never know...
