When you think about it, Cal Kestis is still a relatively new character in the Star Wars universe but it's evident from the get-go that the franchise has huge plans for the fan-favorite video game protagonist. The unprecedented success of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order allowed Disney to incorporate Kestis into the official canon and as we wait for the arrival of the hit 2019 game's sequel, Star Wars is cooking something up to further expand his story.
Ahead of the expected March 2023 release of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the official Star Wars website announced two new books that will hit shelves next year. The first one is titled Star Wars Jedi: Battle Scars, a sequel story that is set between the events of Fallen Order and Survivor. Published by Del Ray and written by Sam Madds, the novel is set for release on March 7, 2023, and will most likely coincide with the release of the video game.
If that wasn't enough to get you hyped, Dark Horse is also set to release The Art of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor which as the title suggests will give fans an in-depth look at the game's development, including concept art and commentary from the creators. The art book will hit shelves on May 2, 2023.

As for Cal's potential crossover to the live-action universe, I strongly believe that it won't be long until we see him in a Disney+ series or even a full-length film. It's worth noting that he was reportedly set to appear in Obi-Wan Kenobi until plans changed. Perhaps Season 2 has something major in store for us.
