Rumor: Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order’s Cal Kestis Could Be Getting His Own Disney+ Show

Star Wars fans have been treated well as of late, with the recent confirmation of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor and Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 6 ending the series on a high note. More is indubitably on the way, making the future look really bright for the franchise. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor may be the next time fans see Cal Kestis in action, but as a recent rumor would have it, it may not be the last.

The Star Wars Jedi series will probably get a threequel eventually, but a new rumor suggests that Cal Kestis will also be getting his own live-action Disney+ Show at some point in the future. This makes sense given how much Disney wants to leverage its streaming service for popular brands like Marvel and Star Wars, and given that Kestis is identical to Cameron Monaghan (his actor), it would be an easy transition too.

This rumor comes way of YouTuber and Star Wars insider Kristian Harloff, who says he’s heard that Cameron Monaghan has signed on to reprise the role of Cal Kestis in a Disney Plus Show. He also adds that no production dates have been revealed quite yet, but that it is happening according to someone he’s trusted before.

It should be noted that he wasn’t able to get further confirmation, so fans should take this rumor with a grain of salt. But with the popularity of The Mandalorian, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and other Disney Plus shows, it’s a logical extension from having Cameron play Cal in a game to having him appear in a live-action show. In fact, many believed that Cal Kestis was going to appear in Obi-Wan Kenobi, and while this did not come to pass, it shows already how receptive fans are to a live-action Cal.

Given Harloff’s comments on production dates, it’s likely to be some time before this new show is confirmed. It’s also likely to come out sometime after Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, which is reportedly releasing early next year. So, fans would be wise to back pocket this rumor just in case something happens between now and then or if this rumor proves to be false.

Either way, Cal Kestis’ future is looking bright for fans, if dark for himself. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor boasts darker themes than Jedi: Fallen Order, and it’ll be interesting to learn more about the game. The empire looks stronger than before, Cal looks more lost than before, and there are many questions about who is in the bacta tank in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
