“For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times…before the Empire.”
Those words, spoken by Obi Wan Kenobi in A New Hope, painted a grim picture for the Jedi. And in Revenge of the Sith we saw them virtually executed due to Order 66.
Or were they?
EA Games and Respawn have announced their collaboration on Jedi: Fallen Order. Set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, the game is said to focus on Jedi who survived Order 66.
While this concept has been explored before, specifically with Ahsoka Tano and Kanan Jarrus in Star Wars Rebels as well as the Darth Vader comics, it is unknown if the game will focus on them or new characters. But, it’s likely that it could feature fan favorite character Ahsoka.
An early 2019 release date is being looked at.
