Ewan McGregor Hints At Obi-Wan Kenobi And Jedi: Fallen Order Connection
Yesterday, a new trailer for the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi dropped. In anticipation of its upcoming release, Ewan McGregor is in full press mode supporting the six-part series and stopped by virtually on the Jimmy Kimmel show.
Over the course of the interview, McGregor dove right into a number of topics ranging from action figures of himself to fans who know more about the series than he does. But it is one specific side comment that made us pause.
Every Upcoming Star Wars Movie and TV Show
In the interview, he praises director Deborah Chow who “really knows [her stuff]” regarding the various media the Star Wars universe inhabits. McGregor says that “all of the storylines have to … match up” and you “can’t have some fact in a video game that doesn’t match up to the movie.”
It’s a known fact that Star Wars Jedi: Fall Order is situated around the same time as the events of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. It isn’t that big of a hyperspace jump to think we could see a cameo from Cal Kestis or another Fallen Order character.
In Jedi Fallen Order, Cal is hunted down by the Jedi hunting Inquisitors. In fact, both Fallen Order and the Obi-Wan series feature The Inquisitors as the main villains. Check out our Jedi: Fallen Order review to see just what we thought of Cal’s adventure. Could he be in Obi-Wan Kenobi?
Luckily, we won’t have to wait too long to find out. Obi-Wan Kenobi drops its first two episodes on Disney Plus May 27, 2022. In the mean time, check out our coverage on the heartfelt reunion between Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen for Obi-Wan Kenobi and be sure to check out the first trailer for the series.
