Before rolling the trailer, Respawn's team briefly discussed some of the development of Jedi: Fallen Order. At today's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order panel on the Celebration Stage, we learned a ton of new information about the upcoming video game, which its creators referred to as a "Jedi fantasy story game". And boy, does this title have the potential to pull a messy retcon of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
There are already some clues there for fans to dissect. And at the same time, a photo appeared on Reddit with the estimated release date of the game!
Meet the main character, Cal Kestis played by Shameless and Gotham star Cameron Monaghan. It was a theory that was decidedly put to bed in Star Wars: Last Jedi, which established that Rey's parents were "nobody".
Again, the aforementioned leak goes into more detail. "The saga comes to an end".
As detailed during the panel, Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order takes place shortly after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. And audiences got a tantalizing tease from another figure from the past: Emperor Palpatine from the original and prequel trilogies, whose ominous laugh closes out the promotional spot. " We are not just looking at another trilogy, we're really looking at the next ten years or more". Here's what we now know. Cal must evade the Empire's Inquisitors but he chooses to do so while secretly continuing his training with his lightsaber and Force powers. "Princess Leia lives in this film in a way that's mind-blowing for me".
The first Star Wars: Episode 9 trailer was in a galaxy far, far away for quite some time but not anymore. That eventually included veterans of series like Uncharted, Arkham, Bioshock, and Metal Gear, and they worked with LucasFilm on developing brand new planets and characters to introduce to the Star Wars universe.
Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order is finally being revealed. The new droid seen in the trailer BD-1, which internal stands for "Buddy Droid 1", he provides light during the game both literally as a spot light, and also a bit of humour.
