Insider says that Cal Kestis is getting his own Star Wars show

According to rumors, Cameron Monaghan will reprise his role from the video games.


Star Wars fans have had plenty of reasons to celebrate these past few weeks as Disney and Lucasfilm have confirmed everything from Star Wars: Andor's premiere date to Season 4 of The Mandalorian as well as the premiere and subsequent end of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is widely considered one of the best Star Wars games of all time, so a show that acts as a sequel won't be the worst idea.

Now, it appears that Star Wars fans have even more of a reason to be jubilant.

According to Star Wars insider, Kristian Harloff, Cal Kestis, the protagonist of the popular Star Wars video game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (and its sequel, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor), is getting a live-action adaptation on Disney+ with Cameron Monaghan reprising his role as the young Jedi.

It's important to note that Harloff clarified that this is a rumor and it's not confirmed. But, if you think about it, the timing fits. Lest we forget, Ewan McGregor let it slip in May that Obi-Wan Kenobi is connected with Star Wars Jedi. Of course, he might just have been talking about the fact that the recently-concluded Disney+ series takes place four years after Fallen Order. However, the upcoming sequel will take place right around the same time as Obi-Wan Kenobi.

We'd love to see Cal Kestis in an official Star Wars spin-off even if he doesn't get to star in one.

In theory, a Disney+ series starring Monaghan as Cal Kestis could explore the time gap in between Fallen Order and Survivor in the lead-up to the follow-up's release in 2023.

If this is true, then we should start hearing more about the Cal Kestis spin-off soon enough in an official capacity. Otherwise, it just wouldn't make sense for Disney to release the off-shoot after Survivor comes out unless the game is delayed.
