The long-awaited Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order LEGO set may well be on its way, but not in the form that many would expect. Instead of the game’s protagonist Cal Kestis, his ever-reliable companion, BD-1, will be the star of the show.
Instagram user ‘1414FalconFan’ posted a blurry image showing a build of the droid, who is without a Cal minifig. The 1062-part set will reportedly retail for US$99/ £99.99, with its release slated for 1 August 2022.
An official reveal is likely to be on the way, considering that Star Wars Celebration 2022 is currently underway. The event has set aside a couple of LEGO reveals, so we’ll just have to wait and see if this leak of the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order LEGO set turns out to be accurate. Till then, take this with a pinch of salt.
On the gaming side of things, EA has announced its intention to build a new franchise around Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which means there’ll be more than just a sequel in store. Respawn Entertainment is also set to join the fray with three new Star Wars gaming titles in the pipeline.
Released in 2019, Fallen Order is set five years after Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith in the Star Wars universe. It follows Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis, who becomes a target of the Empire and is hunted throughout the galaxy by the Inquisition while attempting to complete his training, reconcile with his troubled past, and rebuild the fallen Jedi Order.
No release date, casting details, or release date has been announced for its sequel.
And as expected, the new set has made an appearance on Amazon.
