When Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Cameron Monaghan arrived in November 2019 and had an easy holiday gift for family and friends. Monaghan played the game’s protagonist, Cal Kestis, a Padawan survivor of Order 66, so he made for the perfect gift. But while he sees himself in a game that didn’t bother the actor, the same can’t be said of his loved ones.
“I would go [to] Their house and they’re going to play it, and it’s going to be really weird,” he told StarWars.com, laughing. As a joke, Monaghan would sit close to friends, repeating the game’s dialogue or Cal’s grunts and shrieks as it happened on screen. “I remember my friends were really tripped over.”What is happening?!’“
in Grand: fallen regimeDuring the Age of the Empire and the Jedi-Hunting Inquisitors, Cal was just looking to lay low and stay put until fate intervened. Although his training was patchy, he was thrust back into combat and the ways of the Jedi; The rest is gaming history. Jedi: The Fallen Order He became one of the most beloved people star Wars games, and Cal is a recent fan favorite — so much so that you can currently buy Cal’s Legacy Lightsaber Hilt from him star Wars: Galaxy Edge at Disneyland Park in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, as a result of a fan vote.
sequel Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, announced in January, and last night at The Game Awards, Respawn Entertainment, Electronic Arts and Lucasfilm Games confirmed the release date – March 17, 2023, on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S and Windows PC – The first full trailer has been dropped. It’s an exciting trailer, showcasing new enemies, allies, and abilities, while ending with some powerful words from Cal: “As long as we fight, hope remains.” For Monaghan, the trailer represents the experience of the game.
“I think it’s a great introduction to the scope and scale of this new game. This game is really ambitious in terms of how far it goes and advances not only in the gameplay elements of it Jedi: The Fallen Order“But also enhancing the story and the characters as well,” says Monaghan. “We’re starting to see hints of where that will branch out and what choices will be presented to you as a player.”
However, he is quick to note that the trailer is really just a small preview. “As much as the trailer reveals some really cool and exciting things, it doesn’t reveal the essence of what we’re going for with this show,” says Monaghan. “I think people are going to be really pleasantly surprised by how far this game progresses and where it goes the deeper you go into it.”
There is a five-year jump between Jedi: The Fallen Order And the Eat: Survivor, and the empire was expanding. As the Imperials tighten their grip, the rebels and outlaws feel the pressure. “We have a really traumatic situation that we find Cal in at the beginning of the game, as he looks for ways to rebel that are becoming increasingly difficult and perhaps even hopeless. But we have a character that this resistance has given meaning and purpose to, and he’s been given that hope, and that hope is hard to quench,” Monaghan says. “But what happens when you have hope in a situation that is becoming increasingly hopeless? Different people have different ideas about the best way to fight back.”
Monaghan may have been alluding to conflicts like the one hinted at in the trailer, where Ceri Gonda (played by Debra Wilson), the ex-Jedi who trained Cal in Jedi: The Fallen OrderIt seemed to go against Cale’s methods. “Cere and Cal have this interesting dynamic where she’s not his formal master, but she’s his mentor,” he says. And frankly speaking, they have different ideas on how to deal with imperialism and empire. In the first game, it was about finding a family and what it means to have a family. With this story, a lot of it has to do with, “What happens when there’s pressure on a family?” With elements like this, and others Monaghan can’t talk about yet, Cal’s journey in the game feels particularly rich.
“What we ultimately discover in the story is a really complex and exciting evolution of the way we want to approach the character, and I think he’s not only exciting, but he’s also emotional and beautiful and treats his audience with a level of respect that I think a lot of people would really appreciate.”
Monaghan, a player himself, understands Legacy star Wars Games from the early 80’s. He sees Eat: Survivor As playing a potentially important role in the current generation of consoles. “It’s such an honor to be a part of a title that’s now being released on this generation of consoles with Grand series. I think people have been looking for titles that really excite them to pass on to the next generation. Speaking personally, having seen what this game looks like and how it works on the next generation [of consoles]I think it will make people very excited.”
However, the actor seems very excited about the story. While he won’t go into detail, it looks like it is Eat: Survivor It will have an effect. “This is going to be an emotional roller coaster for people,” he says. “I think you should be made of stone so your heart won’t beat.”
