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.

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.
