Star Wars: Brotherhood Writer Confirms Fallen Order’s Jedi: Cal Kestis Cameo
One of the most significant and beloved contributions to Star Wars canon in recent years is Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The game follows inexperienced Jedi Cal Kestis as he tries to keep a low profile after the events of Revenge of the Sith. Unfortunately, he reveals his Force powers in public, which leads to a group of Inquisitors hunting him down. While on the run, he attempts to complete his training, learn about Jedi history, and more. It’s a pretty compelling story and one that resonated with many Star Wars fans after a long hiatus from story-driven Star Wars games.
Respawn’s game has been referenced in a handful of other Star Wars projects, such as The Mandalorian, over the past few years, but fans recently spotted another one. A young Cal Kestis is believed to have been spotted in Mike Chen’s new book, Star Wars: Brotherhood. The book takes place before Revenge of the Sith and follows Anakin and Obi-Wan on another adventure. At one point in the story, a red-haired youth is mentioned, leading many to believe it was Kestis. Chen confirmed on Twitter that it was indeed the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order protagonist, because apparently there were no other young redheads at that time. As of now, Respawn has confirmed that they are working on a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and it’s thought we could see it as soon as this week at Star Wars Celebration, but that hasn’t been confirmed.
#12: It’s pretty well known at this point, but there’s a “blink and you miss it” cameo by Jedi Fallen Order’s Jaro Tapal and a red-haired youth. (Yes, it’s Cal.) pic.twitter.com/8uee8WoDkG

It is also heavily speculated that Cal Kestis could appear in the new Obi Wan Kenobi on Disney+, as the character has yet to appear in live-action and some believe the timeline would line up perfectly for the character to debut. Only time will tell if that ends up happening, but considering Disney+’s Star Wars shows have had a ton of cameos, it wouldn’t be entirely shocking.
Do you hope Cal Kestis shows up in live-action soon? Let me know in the comments below or contact me on Twitter @Cade_Onder.
