Like a ship that has sprung a mass of leaks, the sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has had leaked details springing up left, right and centre recently, including the fact that it’s called Survivor. Finally it’s official, as is the fact that it’s not being released in 2022. Boo Hiss!
The trailer below doesn’t reveal much, but it does feature the Grand Inquisitor, a former Jedi who started off in the Rebels animated show and is one of the main bad guys in the Obi-Wan Kenobi live action show that’s just started on Disney+. Oddly though, the portrayal of his species is back to being what they looked like in Revenge of the Sith, rather than the off-brand, and rather cheap looking, make-up seen in the Obi-Wan show (although we have now heard rumblings that is#t may not actually be the Grand Inquisitor). That’s an odd lack of synergy for Lucasfilm Games, especially as there’s at least one other crossover with the Obi-Wan show, since the underwater base of the Inquisitors was first shown in Fallen Order and, according to the trailers, is also in the Disney+ series.
Perhaps the Obi-Wan show will provide a hint as to what’s going on, especially as many have speculated that protagonist Cal Kestis and/or Cere Junda might also turn up in live action form, since it’s set around the same time period. There’s no sign of that so far, but Cal’s droid BD-1 is also in the game trailer and has already been in the recent Book of Boba Fett. The Survivor trailer was unveiled as part of a Star Wars Celebration event currently happening in the US and is included below for your viewing pleasure.
