I was thinking about possible Canon storylines about Revan and Malak. I was doing my own digging into what we know about the famous starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Mandalorian_Wars in Canon when I found that the Canon version was not fought between the Mandalorians and Galactic Republic but between the Mandalorians and Jedi Order instead.
Considering that Revan’s fall to the Dark Side began in betraying the orders of the Jedi Council in helping the Republic, I realised that this storyline wouldn’t work as the Jedi are already fighting so the starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Revanchist aren’t disobeying the council at all.
How would you like see Revan and Malak’s fall playing out in Canon?
So if there is any truth to the reports of a KOTOR movie, based on the the characters and events of the game, it calls into question how they could do that with the game being an rpg with multiple paths, choices and outcomes. If they come out with the movie how would you like to see it take place/end? Does Revan go light or dark? Does he and Bastila have a relationship? Are all the playable characters in the movie? What planets would you like to see? What would you like to see?
Personally, I’ve probably run through the game probably a dozen times, running through both on the light side and dark side. I like the outcome of the light side best, so I’d like to see the movie end with the destruction of the star forge. I think the connection between Revan and Bastila is important to the story so some kind of love interest should be there. I like most of the characters in the game but I could see some of them not being there or being replaced by someone different. I think Carth, Mission, Zaalbar, Canderous and HK are a must along with Revan and Bastila and Malak of course. A small droid I’m sure would be there but not necessarily T3 and Jolee and Juhani don’t do much for me so them not being there or being someone else would be fine in my book. Most of the planets I love but I think some of them could change. Taris is great and is the catalyst to the entire game. Dantooine could change to a planet with another Jedi temple. Tatooine obviously has been on screen a lot but I think the the familiarity of it would be a good idea plus I think we could see the Tusken raiders seen other then just savages. Manaan is my least favorite so I think they could do something else. Maybe do Mandalore and have the map guarded by a Mythosaur, could give Revan and Canderous and good storyline. Kashyyyk wasn’t done all that well in ROTS in my opinion so I think it should be redone like what’s seen in the game plus the underground is an awesome place. The sith tombs on Korriban are also very cool and would be great to see. Your capture onto the leviathan would be good but it definitely wouldn’t need to be that ship. And the unknown planet and the star forge would be an absolute must.
One way I think they could do the movie to make different opinions happy would be show two different timelines throughout the movie. Most of the game is spent trying to find star maps that show the way to the star forge, following the footsteps that Darth Revan and Darth Malak made in the attempt to do the same thing. Along the way your character(Revan) has visions of his past self searching for the maps. I think the live timeline could be Revan and the Ebon hawk crew searching for the maps as you do in the game. Then there could be a past timeline where the visions you see are made much more clear and you see the path that Darth Revan and Malak made to find the maps.

Buzzfeed News is reporting that a KOTOR movie is currently in the works and is being written by Avatar writer Laeta Kalogridis. It would be the first in a potential trilogy. It's unclear if this is the same project being worked on by Dan Weiss and David Benioff.
There's always something that I've wondered about Revan and Malak: How did they break free from Vitiate's control? Was it out of pure will or something else?
