Popular character Cal Kestis, from the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order video game, could be the next character to get their own solo series on Disney+. The game debuted in 2019, and Kestis quickly became a fan favorite. The sequel to Fallen OrderStar Wars Jedi: Survivor, is scheduled to release sometime in 2023. Since its announcement, fans can’t help but think (but mostly hope) that Cal Kestis gets brought to life in his own series.

 

 

According to YouTuber Kristian Harloff, rumor has it Disney and Lucasfilm are currently in the process of developing a Disney+ television series that involves Kestis. While it’s still unclear what that project looks like, it’s said that Cameron Monaghan (Shameless [US], Gotham), who lends his voice and likeness to Cal Kestis, has signed on to reprise his role.

 

 

Kestis’ arrival into the live-action universe would make a lot of sense. Disney and Lucasfilm have made it a priority to generate interest in the decades-old franchise among younger audiences, and involving newer characters in future projects is one surefire way to go about it.

 

As of right now, we’re seeing Star Wars lean pretty heavily in favor of nostalgia and familiar characters — such as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka Tano, and Boba Fett. But series like The Mandalorian and Andor introducing us to new characters can start the process of creating more longevity for the franchise.

 

Cal Kestis isn’t the only new character that’s rumored to be getting their own series. Reva the Third Sister (Moses Ingram), from the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, is also allegedly getting her own spin-off show. It was revealed at the end of the series that she was a youngling that was meant to be slaughtered by Anakin Skywalker during Order 66. Her character’s development throughout the series left many of us unsure of who she may become, so a spin-off series for Reva could pose as yet another perfect opportunity to rally a newer audience for an entirely new journey.

 

Keep in mind, these are all rumors. Fingers crossed that we get these two compelling characters get their own solo projects, but we can’t be bummed out if it never ends up happening.

 

There’s a lot of Star Wars content out there, and if you’re dabbling in the universe, there might be a movie or show you’re missing. Make sure you’re caught up with our easy-to-follow Star Wars timeline.
