3 Burning Questions After Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Teaser Dropped

One of the biggest stories in the video game world from this past weekend was the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor panel at Star Wars Celebration. Respawn Entertainment, Electronic Arts, and Lucasfilm Games unveiled Star Wars Jedi: Survivor™, the next chapter of the beloved Star Wars action-adventure series chronicling the journey of Jedi Cal Kestis. Developed by the veteran team at Respawn under the leadership of game director Stig Asmussen, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will expand upon the iconic Star Wars stories, worlds, characters, and thrilling combat first experienced in the series’ debut title, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order™. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is being built for the current generation of gaming hardware to create a deeper and more expansive Star Wars experience for players worldwide when the game launches in 2023.

“Even before completing Jedi: Fallen Order, our team had a vision of how to carry the adventure for Cal, BD, and the crew into the sequel,” said Stig Asmussen, game director, Respawn. “For Jedi: Survivor, we are working in lockstep with Lucasfilm Games to build on the legacy of Jedi: Fallen Order. We’re leveraging advanced technology to create more dynamic Jedi combat and cinematic storytelling to expand on Cal’s story as he matures and survives during the dark times. We can’t wait to share more about the game with the world later this year.”

The teaser trailer had fans at the panel celebrating and also wondering what the next chapter of Cal Kestis’s story would look like.  In true teaser fashion, there was a lot of mystery to the actual story of the

Who will be the villain in this story?

Jedi: Fallen Order gave us some iconic villains with the Inquisitors. It seems now that Cal will be facing a villain more inlined with a mastermind like Grand Admiral Thrawn. There seemed to be a lot of confusion about who the character speaking and seemingly talking to Cal Kestis is.  The only thing we can really tell is the character is a Pau’an.  Some fans have theorized the Pau’an is none other than the Grand Inquisitor and this will be the story of how he becomes the main servant to Darth Vader.

There is not much known about the Grand Inquisitor except that he was a Pau’an and also a Jedi Temple Guard. Star Wars Jedi Survivor would be a great setting to include the Grand Inquisitor since the first game already included most of the Inquisitors.  While it is a good theory it may not actually line up with the Grand Inquisitors timeline from Star Wars Rebels or even the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

The first time we were introduced to the Pau’an was when Kenobi goes to Utapau searching for General Grievous in Revenge of the Sith.  We know that Utapau goes under the control of the Empire and this certain Pau’an may be Tion Medon, the port administrator who tells Kenobi they are being held hostage.

Why did Cal go back to a single-bladed lightsaber?

I think a majority who played Jedi Fallen Order will agree that a highlight of the game was playing with a double-bladed lightsaber.  Although you could switch between single and double bladed throughout the game, it was near the end of the game that Cal was able to fix his broken hilt into a double bladed hilt.  The hilt could separate into two singular hilts with a twist but the new look at his lightsaber may hint that it’s not the same.

Now in the teaser, we see Cal fight a mysterious Sith and appear to lose his lightsaber.  It then seems that the unidentified Pau’an is in possession of Cal’s lightsaber.  At a closer look, the hilt seems to have a ring on the end to attach to a belt.  We also see Cal use only a single blade while fighting the mysterious Sith.

Is the character in Bacta Tank a Sith?

The tease throughout the trailer is a mysterious person in what appears to be a Bacta Tank. There are some subtle clues that link this character throughout the trailer.  One major clue that is shown is the unknown character appears to be missing an arm.  There is an overhead shot of the character in the tank and only one arm is shown. At the end of the trailer, there is a slow pull-out shot of the same character in the tank which appears to be a missing arm just below the shoulder joint.

There is a quick fight scene between Cal and the Sith that may connect to the mysterious character.  If you slow down the trailer you can see that the Sith character appears to only have one arm as well.

Could it be that Cal is trying to save the Jedi who have fallen to the Dark Side and became Sith or Inquisitors?  Maybe that is why the dialogue in the trailer references why Cal is leading a group that won’t follow him.
