Cameron Monaghan will not only be reprising his role as Jedi Cal Kestis in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, but also in a new live-action series that will be coming exclusively to Disney’s streaming service, according to new rumors shared by Kristian Harloff. “Rumor, rumor, rumor,” the YouTuber warned his viewers before revealing that he has heard from a trustworthy source about how Monaghan has already signed on to star in what could be a follow-up story to Respawn Entertainment’s acclaimed 2019 action-adventure game and its recently announced sequel. The idea of a Star Wars: Jedi series doesn’t seem far fetched, as Monaghan is already an established actor who has starred in popular TV projects such as Shameless and Gotham. Some of the scenes in the recently concluded Obi-Wan Kenobi series also seem to have been inspired by sequences in Respawn’s game, like Kestis entering Fortress Inquisitorius from underwater and Vader holding back water with the Force. Disney already has multiple Star Wars series for its streaming service lined up, including Ahsoka, Andor, Skeleton Crew, and The Acolyte, a mysterious show starring Amandla Stenberg.
Rumor, rumor, rumor… Have to say that – not confirmed! Got this from someone I’ve trusted in the past, tells me this is a thing… The rumor itself, at the moment, is that there is a Cal Kestis show in the works for Disney Plus. The rumor is that [the actor Cameron Monaghan has] actually signed on to play the character from Jedi: Fallen Order in a live-action series for Disney Plus. There’s no production dates set, but my source tells me that this is happening.
