Where Cal Kestis Fits Into Star Wars Canon

May the Fourth brings exciting events for Star Wars enthusiasts: new merchandise releases, the 25th anniversary re-release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Star Wars Celebration 2025 tickets on sale, and more. Amidst the excitement, one important milestone may have been missed: Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’s first anniversary celebration over the weekend.

One year after its release, the popularity of Jedi: Survivor and its predecessor, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, continues to soar. The franchise and its characters are expanding into various forms of Star Wars media. Cal Kestis and the Mantis crew’s adventures have been chronicled in the book “Star Wars Jedi: Battle Scars” by Sam Maggs. Recently, Cal and his companion BD-1 appeared in the LEGO Star Wars 25th Anniversary celebration video.

While Cal Kestis, Merrin, and most characters from their saga have yet to appear in live-action or animated series like “Tales of the Jedi,” many fans eagerly anticipate their arrival in future projects.

Cal is an exceptional character, with Cameron Monaghan’s exceptional acting talent elevating his portrayal. Monaghan’s live-action experience and motion capture prowess in the Star Wars Jedi games demonstrate his ability to deliver captivating performances. His ability to convey the emotional depth, complexity, and passion demanded by a franchise like Star Wars is undeniable.

Cal’s versatility allows Disney to integrate him into various projects, given his age and the timeline of his experiences. As he was 13 during Order 66, Cal could easily be incorporated into original trilogy-centric stories alongside characters like Ahsoka Tano and Ezra Bridger. Additionally, his survival after the Empire’s fall makes him a potential candidate for the Filoni-led project culminating with Grand Admiral Thrawn as the antagonist.

Numerous storylines within the Star Wars universe appear to be converging. Ahsoka and Sabine Wren’s Peridea adventure and Cal Kestis’s journey on Tanalorr, depicted in “Jedi: Survivor,” share close temporal proximity. “Jedi: Survivor” is set in 9BBY, while Ahsoka’s storyline is estimated to be around 11BBY.

Furthermore, “Jedi: Survivor” aligns with the live-action “Obi-Wan Kenobi” series. Both occur in 9BBY and introduce the Hidden Path, a pivotal organization. These storylines suggest the potential for interconnected events within the vast Star Wars galaxy.

Live-action characters like Saw Gerrera and Darth Vader have made appearances in the Star Wars Jedi games, suggesting the potential for future crossovers with Cal’s journey. While the possibility of Cal appearing in live-action remainsunconfirmed, his increasing involvement in the broader Star Wars narrative makes it seem likely.
