Rumor, rumor, rumor… I have to say – unconfirmed! I got it from someone I trusted in the past, he tells me it’s solid… The rumor itself, right now, is that there is a series dedicated to Cal Kestis in preparation for Disney Plus. Rumor has it actor Cameron Monaghan has actually signed on to (re)play the character from Jedi: Fallen Order in a live-action series for Disney+. There are no set production dates, but my source tells me it will happen.
Cameron Monaghan is the actor who lends his features to Cal Kestis in the video game, and whose sequel, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor revealed itself via a dark trailer at the end of May. Corridor noises earlier evoked a possible appearance in the series Obi-Wan Kenobi. This has now evolved into a project centered on him.
The actor has roles in Shameless, Gotham, Malcolm or in Acting for a Cause. Disney for its part has not confirmed the possibility of a series, and it is therefore advisable to take this information with lightness. But anything can be expected with the ambitious and limitless spirit of Disney. The period post-order 66, from the purge of the Jedi and the advent of the Empire has the wind in its sails with the series centered on Obi-Wan. And this is precisely the era in which Fallen Order and its sequel. so let’s stay alert.
