Kenobi interview triggers Jedi Fallen Order connection speculation

            Another May the 4 has come and gone, and with it, no concrete news of a Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order sequel. However, some fans are now wondering if protagonist Cal Kestis’ sophomore act may be coming sooner than they first thought.

Ewan McGregor, who played Obi-Wan Kenobi in the prequel trilogy and will reprise the role in the eponymous Disney+ series, set tongues wagging during a recent interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Guest host Mike Birbiglia asks McGregor about the actor’s reaction when fans start quizzing him about Star Wars facts, with McGregor answering that it’s difficult to keep up with the universe now that it’s expanded into books, comics, cartoons, and “computer games”. He also praises director Deborah Chow’s Star Wars knowledge as “all of the storylines have to match up” because you “can’t have some fact in a videogame that doesn’t match up to the movie”.
