Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is bringing new characters into the Star Wars canon. But where else will we see them after the video game?
From everything that was said about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, one thing stood out more than most.
This story is canon.

Even though it’s a video game, whatever happens in Jedi: Fallen Order will somehow relate to the larger Star Wars story as whole. It was important for the developers to mention the video game was canon because that means these characters could and probably will live elsewhere.
So where will we find the characters next?
While Star Wars stories can be before or after the events of Jedi: Fallen Order, we have a timeline to work with that should give clues as to where we will see Cal, Cere and the Second Sister next.
The game takes place just after Order 66 with Cal being a Padawan that escaped the initial wave of destruction. We also got a Saw Gerrera sighting during the trailer, which puts Cal in direct path of the rebels too.
These two clues help us round out where we can expect to see these characters.
The comics is an easy one, especially since we already know a Jedi: Fallen Order comic tie-in is already schedule to come out. The story follows Cere and a Jedi Eno as they take on a mission that is more than they expected.
While we likely won’t see Cal in the comic because Cere is a Padawan at the time, it goes give background into other characters we will meet in the video game.
Comics are also easier to sandwich in where you need to for the sake continuity. Once the game has been out for a few months, I can certainly see a Cal comic series – if he survives.
With all the television series Star Wars has coming, there might be a home for characters from Jedi: Fallen Order, though the space is limited currently.
Rebels would have been an obvious choice but that show is no longer on the air. The Clone Wars is a possibility as the timeline is close enough. Though the issue with The Clone Wars is Cal would be very young and probably not have any real reason to be in the shown other as an Easter Egg.
Though Cere could conceivably wind up in the show as she is a Jedi.
The Mandalorian is out as the timeline doesn’t really add up and I don’t see them forcing any of those characters in for the sake of them being a part of the story line.
Star Wars Resistance takes place too far into the future.
There isn’t much room for the characters from Jedi: Fallen Order unless it’s in The Clone Wars Season 7. Right now, it doesn’t seem as though these characters will be appearing in any television series.
This is the big one — along with comics. Disney has been creating novels are tie in the stories together in different timelines. We’ve had four new novels this year with another on the way in July.
But there are at least another four ready to hit bookstores after that, including a tie-in to Galaxy’s Edge. Thats how you know Lucasfilm is serious about its tie-ins.
It’s likely that next year, there will be a book about the characters from Jedi: Fallen Order.
Because it was made such a point that these characters are part of the current canon, it’s likely we will see them again after the video game release.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order releases on November 12.
