These stories would be cool on film. Hell even if Disney created their own old republic stories with similar content explaining the Sith during the era before the thousand so years before episode 1 with similar old republic style would be nice too. Just love the extreme conflict of the old republic. And anyways this dude was super OP!!!
Revan—renowned as the Revanchist, honored as the Revan, reviled as Revan the Butcher, dreaded as the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Revan, and praised as the Prodigal Knight—was a Human male who played pivotal roles as both Jedi and Sith in the Mandalorian Wars, Jedi Civil War, and Great Galactic War.
Believed to have been born in the Outer Rim Territories around the year 3994 BBY, the man later known as Revan was found by the Jedi Order at an early age and became apprenticed to the Jedi Master Kreia. The Padawan had an insatiable hunger for knowledge and learned everything she knew, then studied under a number of other Masters, quickly becoming the Jedi's most promising pupil. Alongside his friend Alek, he became a Jedi Knight and a vocal and charismatic critic of the Order's inactivity in the ongoing Mandalorian Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders. In defiance of the Jedi Council, the Knight took upon the name Revan and started the Revanchist movement to combat the Mandalorian threat as the Republic Military's Supreme Commander.
Revan and his forces gradually pushed back the Mandalorians, saving countless worlds at the price of devastating moral compromises and the embrace of dark sidepractices. On Dxun, Revan sacrificed thousands of lives to uproot the Mandalorian headquarters. The conflict climaxed over Malachor V, where Revan defeated the Mandalorian leader Mandalore the Ultimate in single-combat and ordered the activation of a superweapon, known as the Mass Shadow Generator, destroying both armies and the planet itself but winning the war in the process
I actually enjoy watching The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, they are good movies and better than the prequels, but not that good so I can regard them as Canon. My hopes were really high after The Force Awakens but the last Jedi was not what I was expected. I love Rey and Kylo Ren and Finn and Poe, they are great characters played by great actors! Mark Hamill is one of my heroes and a birthdaybrother, I understand why he was disappointed on how Luke was written in the last jedi (the books are way better then). I think it's bad of Disney to create a whole new story for the Star Wars concept and just say; screw the Star Wars books and comics, that didn't happen! This is what happen!
They are pissing over 40 years of work... Could they not just made the movies after the Real Canon instead? After all Kylo Ren/Ben Solo is based on Jacen Solo/Darth Caedus in now so called Legends... I think I'm speaking for many Star Wars fans when I say this! Legends are the Real Canon! #legendsarerealcanon#starwars#disney#canon#legends#lukeskywalker#starwarslegends#starwarscanon#40years#realcanon#realstarwars#markhamill#starwarsoriginal

Legends Character Spotlight:
Jango Fett was a renowned Mandalorian bounty hunter, assassin, mercenary, and the "father" of Boba Fett, a genetic clone of his, whom he raised as a son. A Human from Concord Dawn, Fett was adopted by Mandalorian warriors following the murder of his parents and the disappearance of his older sister Arla in 58 BBY. Years later, he would go on to lead them through much of the Mandalorian Civil War as Mandalore. After being imprisoned by Jedi, Fett was responsible for destroying the Death Watch, a Mandalorian group who killed Fett's mentor, Jaster Mereel.
Following the conclusion of that conflict, Fett became a bounty hunter, quickly establishing a reputation as being one of the best in the galaxy. Later on, Fett agreed to serve as the genetic template for the clones that would form the bulk of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. When Master Obi-Wan Kenobi located Jango and Boba on Kamino, Fett fled to join Count Dooku. Though struck down by Mace Windu in combat, Fett's legacy would live on through his son Boba, as well as his cloned brethren, who would have a profound impact on galactic history.
