The Guavian Death Gang had a very small role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but Lucasfilm is set to bring them back for a story with VR game, Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge VR. What’s interesting is, the leader of the gang, Tara Rashin is played by someone else we’ve already met in the Star Wars canon.
Debra Wilson, who plays Rashin in the game, is actually the same actress who plays ex-Jedi master Cere Junda in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Seeing that Rashin is an alien in Tales from Galaxy’s Edge, I think it’s totally great that Wilson can take over the character. If anything, this leader of a gang seems way more interesting than Cere, who I think is one of the most boring characters to come out of Fallen Order.
Even if Wilson is playing this part though, we should expect Cere to make her return in the next Star Wars Jedi game. We don’t really know what’s in store for the sequel, but I am hoping that we get more variety when it comes to the action scenes, as compared to just running and jumping around maps, fighting stormtroopers. How about a segment where we get to pilot the Mantis or use other characters like Merrin? I mean, if they’re going to ‘rip-off’ Uncharted, they may as well use some of the more cinematic game elements too.
No release date has been set for the Fallen Order sequel, but Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge will come out for the Oculus Quest later this year.
