Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order - 10 Things The Rumoured TV Series Must Include
OBVIOUSLY BD-1 has to be included, but what else?
After a divisive few years in the cinema, Star Wars appears to have found a new home on Disney +.
With shows like The Mandalorian, Clone Wars, and Rebels currently smashing it on the small screen, Disney and Lucasfilm are now looking at which other potential Star Wars shows could follow suit.
Alongside the now confirmed and much coveted Obi-Wan Kenobi series, and with rumours swirling about a potential Ahsoka Tano show with Rosario Dawson in the lead role, fans have also heard rumblings in the Force about a new show based on the Jedi: Fallen Order video game.
Featuring Gotham's Cameron Monaghan in the lead role of former Padawan Cal Kestis, Fallen Order sees the young Jedi travelling the galaxy as he attempt to come to terms with the horrific events of Order 66 and re-establish his connection to the Force.
Surpassing EA's own sales projections and winning praise from both players and critics alike, it is little wonder that speculation has arisen over the potential for a live action continuation.
Should the rumours prove correct and the show goes ahead, we cannot assume that all those who tune in for each episode will necessarily have played the game, so a recap of the game's events is crucial to set the stage going forward.
Apart form this, though, what else should be included?
10. Order 66
One of the most central, most defining events of the Fallen Order game is Darth Sidious' infamous Order 66, and the traumatic effect it had on young Cal Kestis.
The Jedi apprentice is left psychologically scarred and all but cut off from the Force as a direct consequence of this childhood experience.
Indeed, quite aside from any actual gameplay mechanics, the flashbacks Cal had of the days leading up to those terrible events were the most gripping, most harrowing, and most hold-your-breath moments in the entire game.
The show must capitalise on this.
We've already established that not everyone watching the show will have played the game, so Cal's PTSD centering on those catastrophic events has to be shown on screen so the viewers can understand and empathise with the young Jedi's trauma in the same way that players already have.
Aside from the emotional weight the scenes did and will carry, there is the additional benefit of being epic from an action point of view, too.
Seeing a live action recreation of Cal and Master Jaro Tapal's desperate fight for their lives against an entire battalion of clone troopers would give the Star Wars movies a run for their money in the action stakes.
