How 'The Book of Boba Fett' Points To a 'Jedi: Fallen Order' Live-Action Adaptation

Fans of the "Star Wars" game Jedi: Fallen Order were given a nice surprise in The Book of Boba Fett Episode 5.

The Disney+ show's latest episode, which launched on the streaming platform on Wednesday, January 26, saw the appearance of a familiar friend from the EA game.

Episode 5 isn't the first time that a nod was given to the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order game either, as there was another Easter Egg earlier in the season.

Here is how The Book of Boba Fett could point to there being a live-action adaptation of Jedi: Fallen Order.

How 'The Book of Boba Fett' Points To A 'Jedi: Fallen Order' Adaptation

Jedi: Fallen Order is set in the aftermath of The Revenge of the Sith and it follows young Jedi Cal Kestis (Cameron Monaghan) who survived the purge of the Jedi Order and embarks on a quest to restore it five years later.

During his journey Cal, the character that gamers play as, is joined by an adorable droid named BD-1 who helps him during his mission.

In The Book of Boba Fett, which is set approximately five years after The Return of the Jedi, BD-1 makes an appearance at Peli Motto's (Amy Sedaris) hangar in Mos Eisley on Tatooine.

Why BD-1 would be spending time at Motto's hangar is unclear, and nor is it explained what happened to Cal for the pair to have separated, given they are still a duo by the end of the events in Jedi: Fallen Order.

Jedi: Fallen Order takes place in 14 BBY while The Book of Boba Fett takes place in approximately 9 ABY, which means there is 23 years between the two so it may be that the pair parted ways or that Cal is simply no longer around.

It should be noted that the droid that appears in The Book of Boba Fett may well be a different BD unit to the one that appears in the game, but the focus that is given to the tiny robot in the episode suggests it's not just any old droid.

Meanwhile, in Episode 3 Danny Trejo's Rancor trainer tells Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) about the Witches of Dathomir and how they used to train the creatures so that they could ride them in their homeworld.

The Witches of Dathomir appear in Jedi: Fallen Order when Cal visits the planet and meets with Merrin, one of the last survivors of the Nightsisters' massacre at the end of the Clone Wars.

The characters have appeared in animated form in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated TV series which Dave Filoni was executive producer for, so this may be a way to continue to link all the relevant shows, films and games together.

If these Easter Eggs are an indication of a live-action adaptation of Jedi: Fallen Order it wouldn't be the first time a "Star Wars" show has helped set-up another—just look at how The Mandalorian paved the way for The Book of Boba Fett.

As it stands Lucasfilm has not made an official announcement on whether Jedi: Fallen Order will be adapted for the small—or big—screen, but it would certainly be possible given the voice actors were the basis for their characters' designs in the game so it'd be easy to have them reprise their roles in live-action.

While a live-action adaptation of Jedi: Fallen Order has yet to be announced, Lucasfilm confirmed on Tuesday, January 25 that the game will have a sequel.

The Book of Boba Fett airs every Wednesday on Disney+.
