'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' To Reveal Who Rey's Parents Are

Asmussen explained, "ultimately we didn't go with an alien race because we felt like-no pun intended-that would alienate a lot of people".

Do you think Rey's a good reason not to have a female protagonist in the games? But Asmussen did go on to say that it would have been "really cool" to have an alien protagonist in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Cal Kestis-one of the ultimate surviving contributors of the Jedi Order after the purge of Order 66-is now a Padawan on the run.

Though you could perhaps argue the presence of a male protagonist acts as a counterweight to the film trilogy it does come across as slightly flimsy reasoning to base such a big story-centric decision on.

Yankees, Red Sox Interested in Mets Pitcher Zack Wheeler
Wheeler is a great target for the Red Sox if acquiring a starter is their main goal before the trade deadline. Picking up the hard-throwing Wheeler would similar to last season's acquisition of Nathan Eovaldi.

But would it be more exciting to see future Star Wars games take a gamble and cast someone different? Despite the Star Wars franchise' massive success, she wanted to quit early on during production. Why was Kal chosen to be the face of Star Wars instead of one of its many many alien species? White protagonists throughout the Star Wars Original and Prequel Trilogies didn't preclude the creation of Star Wars video game protagonists like Kyle Katarn (Jedi Knight series), Dash Rendar (Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire) or Galen Marek (Star Wars: The Force Unleashed). Well, this was apparently a discussion that developer Respawn Entertainment had. I'm still waiting for a Hera Syndulla game that would prove this point.

The actress, who has played Jedi Rey in the most recent Star Wars movies, admits director J.J. Abrams warned her about the pressure of starring in a blockbuster but she had no idea just how great that would be until she turned up on set.

Game director Stig Asmussen motivated the choice to lean towards a male hero belonging to the human race in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Fallen Order has not had the smoothest time pre-release.
