Let me preface this by saying that I have absolutely nothing against speculation and conjecture. It's pretty fun to see what people come up with and to get excited about the possibilities. That being said, from the way people are reacting to the news about Revan, you would think there's a lot more information available. Let's break it down.
Here's what we know about the upcoming Jedi Revan release:
Jedi Revan is coming to the game sometime in the next three months.
That's really about it.
Here's what we don't know about the upcoming release, but lots of people still assume wholeheartedly:
How Revan will be introduced into the game.
When exactly Revan will be introduced into the game.
Which characters will be needed to unlock Revan.
Many people appear to be absolutely certain that OR characters will be needed to unlock Revan, and are willing to dump lots of time and resources into it with almost zero information to go off of. While this seems plausible, we simply don't know enough to go out preaching with total conviction that everyone needs to farm those characters - the same phenomenon appears to be happening with the Solo characters, in anticipation for an unsubstantiated rumor of a (possibly legendary) Beckett release, which is doubtful at best - but this post is mainly about Revan, so I'll save that discussion for another time.
Not only that, but people seem fairly certain that Revan will be coming very quickly, within the next few weeks. Keep in mind that the road ahead updates provide information for the next three months, so it could be longer than people are anticipating. We know that there will be a week of warning if Revan does end up being a legendary character, but we haven't gotten that warning yet, so there's at least a week, at most three months. That's a big range.
One last thing. Tons of people appear very impatient for Revan to be released, or even just for more information to be given. It's only been four days since the puzzle was posted, and only three since it was solved. It hasn't even been a week since Revan was confirmed - simply confirmed, little to nothing more - and people are already chomping at the bit. Just be patient. More information will be released soon, on CG's schedule (which I'm confident that they do have, given that they are a large company; it's probably been planned for a while now, even).
Moral of the story: just relax. In my opinion, it's a waste of time and resources to panic farm for something that you don't even know any details of, especially if different characters end up being required. If you believe that Revan will be coming sooner rather than later, feel free to act accordingly. If you want to panic farm your OR characters, be my guest. But don't preach it like it's certain until it is.
Rant over. I'll step down off of my soapbox now.

It doesn't specifically call it a Heroes Journey, just that if you want a 7* Revan you need 7* OR toons. Interesting. Looking forward to the prep for this in 6 months when I'm done the 500 other things the game is releasing.

So, we know he unlocks at 7* and that we need OR toons at 7* to unlock. We don't yet know when he drops, nor how the event is gonna release or anything. I WOULD assume it is soon, because the character packs drop today (I assume with the update that is coming to announce JTR opening in a few days and containing the Old Republic packs).
We are inbound people, ground zero is moments away. Let's get Revan!

After being informed that Revan will be a hero’s journey event requiring 7* TOR characters which didn’t come out too long ago, has put my perspective of this game into a considerably dim view. This will make practically everyone who is DESPERATE for this character spend obscene amounts of money and the people who can’t or won’t spend it get shafted. Sure chewbacca was a good event. But compared to Revan!? Doesn’t even come close. Disappointed CG. People have been pining for Revan for a long time and then you deny a large amount of your player base the opportunity to even acquire him. You are bold
