I mean, obviously take everything here with a grain of salt. Who really knows if this will actually come to fruition.
One thing is for certain, I do count Kristian Harloff as a reliable Star Wars insider source. I’ve been following him for years back to his AMC movie days, then on Collider Jedi Council and now to his own Youtube Channel where he has a show called Sith Council. He’s been a trusted Star Wars source for me for years and I hope this comes true.

What is Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Star Wars canon is important to me and when I learned that Respawn Entertainment was creating Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and that it would be considered canon, I had to have it. Also, I am terrible at multiplayer games so I was thrilled to learn it was a story driven, single player video game that I could put on easy-mode.
The game was released by Electronic Arts on November 15th, 2019. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order takes place half a decade after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (Episode III). Fallen Order focuses on Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis while in hiding and on the run from the Galactic Empire.
Who is Cal Kestis
Prior to Order 66, Cal Kestis was a Padawan. During the Jedi Purge he lost his Master and narrowly escaped with his life. Without getting into major spoilers, we meet Cal after he’s been in hiding for many years. His adventure begins when he is flushed out by the Inquisitors and goes on the run.
Cal Kestis is played by Cameron Monaghan, a budding young actor who is known for his roles in Shameless, Gotham and Shattered. Fallen Order being a video game, Cameron Monaghan’s likeness is used as Cal Kestis.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was such a big hit that a sequel was announced during Star Wars Celebration 2022, titled Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. Cal Kestis’s story will continue on in 2023.
It’s no wonder with the game being such a big hit and Cameron Monaghan becoming an emerging actor, that Disney+ is showing interest in giving him his very own streaming series.

Check out the full video of Kristian Harloff announcing the Cal Kestis rumor right here.
Star Wars to me is a universe worth exploring. It has so much potential to be more than just stories surrounding Skywalker Saga. I thoroughly enjoyed playing Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and am looking forward to the sequel.
If Disney+ does move forward with a Cal Kestis series, I’ll be counting down the days till I can watch it. I only hope that they also continue on with his playable story in the games.
