The Best Star Wars Game of the Century Solves a ‘Mandalorian’ Season 3 Mystery

The Mandalorian and Boba Fett’s Book usher in a new era of Star Wars storytelling. After years of Skywalkers dominating the conversation, the scope extends to Grogu, aka Baby Yoda. Grogu may look like a sweet kid, but he’s actually 50 years old and a survivor of Order 66, and the mystery of how he escaped has yet to be solved.

What you might not know is that Grogu is not alone. Another former Padawan also survived the Jedi Massacre and quickly forgot his training. You just haven’t heard of him because he’s not on Disney+, but on game consoles.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a 2019 video game developed by Respawn Entertainment where the player controls Cal Kestis, a young Jedi, as he works to solve an ancient mystery.

Cal Kestis starts Jedi: Fallen Order incognito working as a scrap metal worker, as his identity as a Jedi would make him vulnerable to the many Inquisitors seeking to finish the job started by Order 66. Due to all the time he spent out of training, he forgot most of the skills he learned as a child.

When his identity is revealed, Cal is rescued by former Jedi Cere Junda, who sends him on a mission to find a holocron of Force-sensitive children. With this holocron, Cal could establish a new Jedi Academy and forge a new generation of Jedi.

As Cal hops from planet to planet, his memories are refreshed and he regains some of his lost skills. It is a device used to slowly incorporate new abilities into the game, but it also serves a narrative purpose. If Jedi skills can be lost and regained so easily, other Order 66 survivors could be out there with great skills still locked away.

Which brings us back to Grogu. In Boba Fett’s Book In Episode 6, we get our first glimpse into Grogu’s mysterious past. Much like Cal, Grogu watched the Jedi fall all around him as he somehow survived. Additionally, Grogu also has his memory refreshed as he recalls his past Force powers. Luke even tells Ahsoka, “It’s more like he remembers me teaching him anything.”

Grogu’s memory of Jedi training is very reminiscent of Cal Kestis in Fallen order.lucasfilm

What does it mean? Well, if Cal Kestis doesn’t appear in The Mandalorian Season 3, the established themes in the game certainly will. From Order 66 to the concept of a Jedi Academy, Fallen order almost feels like an empty run for the Star Wars live-action TV universe.

Although it was initially dismissed as just a side quest, more Fallen order exists, the more relevant it becomes. That sentiment only intensified when Respawn Entertainment announced plans for a sequel, fueling speculation that Star Wars TV’s narrative will tie into its story.

If you’re not a big gamer, Fallen order is easy to play and full of rich graphics that look cinematic, making it easy to transition into what is often a daunting medium. And if you’re a diehard Star Wars gamer, now’s a great time to play that game again. withdrawal in the following weeks. Boba Fett’s Book ends.

Star Wars: Fallen Order of the Jedi is now available for PS4 and PS5, Xbox and Microsoft Windows.
