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.

  1. I know 0 names from this article off the top of my head.
    That's what I thought when I read the story title to this yesterday. I only just now took a moment to read the article and was like, oh the character from that game I still haven't gotten around to playing even though I got it free last year. At this point, it does take some effort for me to commit to watching SW, and even though I do have some enjoyable moments I still have a lot of memories of wasted time and money from the early 2000s with all the games I bought only to play for maybe an hour or two and then got bored with.

    There were a few standouts (Bounty Hunter, Rogue Squadron, Demolition, original SW Battleground games) but also what seemed like an endless amount of titles that numbed me from even trying again. By the time the Jedi/Sith games came out, I was pretty much already done with them even though I had a lot of friends praising them. I can say the same with most D&D and LOTR games as well. The one game I got excited about was Star Wars 1313 and it got canceled while in development.
