Disney+ is developing a Star Wars TV series starring Cal Kestis, Cameron Monaghan’s character in the game.
Insider Kristian Harloff has reported that Jedi: Fallen Order video game protagonist Cal Kestis is getting his own television series on Disney+.
Following in the footsteps of The Mandalorian , Boba Fett , and Obi-Wan Kenobi , Cal Kestis is getting his own project. The Jedi played by Cameron Monaghan would feature his own Star Wars live-action show . This program would be part of the Disney + catalog, as usual. Kristian Harloff said that he had heard the information from “someone he trusted in the past.” However, none of this has been 100% confirmed. Therefore, let’s just take it as a rumour.
Kristian Harloff also added that “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.”
A rumor that would materialize a dream from the beginning
Ever since Cameron Monaghan first signed on to play Cal Kestis in Jedi: Fallen Order , the Star Wars video game, it seemed only a matter of time before he was confirmed. While film and television actors are involved in video game projects constantly, this felt different. Disney+ has made it very clear that everyone is possible when it comes to appearing in projects that are part of the galactic saga . If a character has appeared in any part of the famous franchise, be it in books, comics or animation programs… It can appear in live action at any time.

The direct sequel to Fallen Order , which will take place five years after the events narrated in the first installment, was recently shown in a short cinematic trailer that confirmed that it will go on sale sometime in 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/ S and PC. To this day we do not know too many details about its plot, although it is rumored that Darth Maul could have a key role in the sequel and that it would have a darker and more sinister tone than the first part.
