Jedi: Fallen Order’s story falls on the timeline of Star Wars canon shortly after Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. EA has previously revealed the story will focus on a young Padawan, but Respawn confirmed today that character is Cal Kestis, who will be played by Shameless and Gotham’s Cameron Monaghan. Here’s everything we learned about the game from its Star Wars Celebration 2019 panel.

The rest of Jedi: Fallen Order’s official story description, per EA’s official release, reads:
“Along the way, Cal will make new friends, like his mysterious companion Cere, as well as run into some familiar faces, all while being accompanied by his faithful droid BD-1. Cal’s flight from the Empire is made even more dangerous as he is being pursued by the Second Sister, one of the Empire’s elite Inquisitors, who seeks to hunt Cal down and extinguish this surviving Jedi. Assisting the Second Sister are the terrifying Purge Troopers, special Imperial forces trained to seek out Jedi and aid the Inquisitors in their dastardly work.”
