Some Fans Upset Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Protagonist is a White Guy

Following the trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order a number of fans expressed their disappointment that the main character was a white male.

On Saturday, Electronic Arts Star Wars released their first trailer for Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order revealing the protagonist of the series is Cal Kestis. He happens to be white, and a number of fans weren’t taking it too kindly.

Here’s what a number of fans were saying about Cal Kestis:

The Inquisitor who is hunting Cal Kestis is actually the Second Sister, who was introduced in Charles Soule’s recent Darth Vader comic book series.

Cal will not be the only Jedi in the game. As seen in the trailer, a Jedi Knight named Cere will also be in the game and appears to help Cal as he tries to avoid the Empire’s Purge Troopers and the Second Sister.

The game will not feature multiplayer or microtransactions as confirmed by Respawn Entertainment’s Vince Zampella, “No multiplayer, no microtransactions, it’s a story game.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order releases on November 15, 2019.
