Question for devs. Canon only toons?

Since this is a Disney licensed game will all characters have to be Canon?

    Good question but I think I know the answer. Yes only canon since it's disney licensed. Hk47 is in there because is created by Bioware for knights of the old republic. EA bought Bioware and now it's in here which might suggest more Kotor toons will be added in the future (hopefully).

    Could you mean Ezra from Rebels? If so, then that is 100% canon & a Disney show to boot, so anything from there is possible. I'd love any of the Inquisitors, the adult Ahsoka, and Zeb.

    OK, so there should be no problem with KOTOR characters. But how about KOTOR II? How do the rights work for a sequel developed by someone else?

    It's too bad because there are a lot of awesome EU characters they could add. And who cares since it's just a collectible game? If anything they are missing out on potential profits making characters like Mara Jade pack only.

    This game is non-canon. Disney owns licensing rights to all things Star Wars, including legends. Knowing that, and considering the inclusion of hk47, there is no logical or legal reason to believe that we won't see more legends characters.

    Gooooo Kyp Durron and Corran Horn.

    This. A similar question comes up in the tabletop games and card games from fantasy flight. They are allowed to use previously established and new characters for their games, but those that are now in the legends brand will stay there unless explicitly shown in canon media like a film, book, comic, etc.

    Well, she's Disney canon so maybe? ;)
    I want Grand Admiral Thrawn.
    Finally, someone else besides me calls for the greatest character ever!
