Star Wars could have lastly offered a solution for one among Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s largest mysteries. Going down just a few years after Order 66, Jedi: Fallen Order follows Jedi survivor Cal Kestis as he makes his method by way of the galaxy, hoping to discover a Jedi Holocron with the names of future Power-sensitive kids. This journey takes him all the best way to Kashyyyk, the Wookiee homeworld, the place he encounters an enormous Imperial presence attempting to pilfer the planet’s plentiful sources. Whereas Cal’s presence on Kashyyyk is totally comprehensible, given the Empire’s wrongdoings on the planet, one explicit enemy he encounters there felt unusually misplaced.
As Cal makes his method by way of Kashyyyk’s Imperial services, he comes throughout a selected kind of trooper. These are the purge troopers, formidable opponents who’re specifically skilled and geared up to help the Inquisitors in searching down remaining Jedi and different Power-sensitives. However the purge troopers Cal encounters on his first journey to Kashyyyk should have been there earlier than they have been even conscious of his presence on the planet. This appears a wierd deployment contemplating, so far as Cal knew, no different Jedi have been working with the Wookiees on the time. Now, nonetheless, one different Star Wars property could have offered a solution as to why the purge troopers have been on Kashyyyk within the first place.
Star Wars: The Dangerous Batch Revealed An Order 66 Survivor Was On Kashyyyk
The animated collection Star Wars: The Dangerous Batch takes place simply after Order 66 because the Empire begins to take over the galaxy. The Dangerous Batch, a.ok.a. Clone Power 99, discover themselves on the run on this new actuality, typically stumbling throughout others who want their assist to get to security. One such character in want of assist is the younger Wookiee Gungi, one other Order 66 survivor, a Jedi Padawan first launched in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. In The Dangerous Batch season 2, episode 6 “Tribe,” Clone Power 99 helps Gungi get again to Kashyyyk, the place he manages to discover a new dwelling and household.
Given these occasions in The Dangerous Batch occurred because the Empire was starting to unfold its affect throughout the galaxy and occupy planets for his or her sources, it’s fully potential Gungi was on Kashyyyk the entire time. He might have been utilizing his abilities as a Jedi to assist his fellow Wookiees attempt to cease the Imperials from wrecking the planet’s pure state. Gungi’s outstanding and rebellious presence on Kashyyyk would clarify why the purge troopers have been already stationed there when Cal arrived in Jedi: Fallen Order. They may have been assigned to guard a delicate location on Kashyyyk to attract Gungi out, however little did they know they’d be going through a wholly totally different Jedi, as a substitute.
Did Gungi Survive The Darkish Occasions?
If this idea is certainly true, and the purge troopers have been stationed on Kashyyyk to catch Gungi, there’s a very good probability Gungi lived by way of various the Darkish Occasions through the reign of the Empire. The Dangerous Batch season 2 takes place someplace round 19 or 18 BBY, whereas the occasions of Jedi: Fallen Order transpire in 14BBY. Gungi might have survived all that point, combating the nice battle on Kashyyyk and attempting to assist his fellow Wookiees keep alive and protect their planet. Regardless of Cal being a fellow Jedi, the Wookiees would seemingly wish to maintain Gungi’s presence a secret for so long as potential.
Nonetheless, it’s unlikely that Gungi survived everything of the Darkish Occasions. Star Wars’ Aftermath trilogy by Chuck Wendig explores the autumn of the Empire after the occasions of Return of the Jedi. This contains the defeat of the Empire on Kashyyyk, however Gungi is noticeably absent in that storyline. This might merely be as a result of timing of the publication, as the ultimate Aftermath novel was revealed in 2017 and The Dangerous Batch season 2 was launched in 2023, however all Order 66 survivors want a solution as to the place they have been through the unique trilogy. Sadly, Gungi assembly his destiny across the time of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s story would make sense for Star Wars continuity.
