“Kristian is back with another Star Wars video. This time he sits down to chat with the author of Darth Bane as well as Darth Revan, one of the creators of The Knights of the Old Republic storyline- Drew Karpyshyn! We talk about The Old Republic and what it means for the new Star Wars canon. We dive into the creation of Darth Bane and how Drew felt to have Mark Hamil voice the character in The Clone Wars series. We also touch on Mass Effect’s chances of getting a movie and Drew tells us about his trilogy of books The Chaos Born Trilogy. It is a great interview, Drew is the man, take a listen!”
