Given that the Star Wars universe is growing at an exponential rate due to the Disney+ platform, it’s not surprising that we might be getting projects from various successful properties tied to the Star Wars universe as a whole. For example, the upcoming Ashoka series is happening due to her popularity via The Clone Wars and Rebels cartoons. Now, we might just be getting a series based on the Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order video game, as reports are stating that Cal Kestis is coming to live-action.
For those who haven’t played the game, Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order takes place in the gap between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Kestis is a former Jedi padawan who is trying to live life safely after Order 66 killed his master, but is forced back into the spotlight and hunted by Inquisitors. A bold journey takes place, and he makes it out alive–for now.
The character of Cal was both voiced by, and was made visually to look like, Cameron Monaghan, and the person who reported this new series says that he’s signed on to portray him in live-action.
As for the story that might happen, that’s unclear. More than likely it’ll be set in the period between Fallen Order and the upcoming Jedi Survivor title, but we can’t be certain of that. For all we know, the series will actually take place after Survivor and thus continue his story in a new form.
This is all speculation, but it makes sense given the success of the game. Take it with a grain of salt until officially confirmed.
