Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order: Developers lament denied requests for black or female main character

Game news Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order: Developers lament denied requests for black or female main character

Released in 2019, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order could have presented itself in a completely different way by offering a main character very different from what we know today in the guise of Cal Kestis.

A protagonist at the heart of a controversy

It is on the social network Twitter, that a former employee of Respawn Entertainment tells us that the team in charge of the development of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2 wanted to stage a black or female main character. Nora Shramek worked as a “lightning artist” on the first opus of the same name and she claims that while multiple employees wanted to opt for a black or female protagonist, all requests were denied.
The reasons explain that the game already integrates two important black characters on the one hand, and on the other hand, that Star Wars sufficiently highlighted a female character with Rey in the last trilogy of films.

When I worked on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, a lot of developers wanted and advocated for the main character to be black and/or female. Reasons for NO: We already have two black people in the game. Rey is female and we can’t do that to “guess what the demographics of the people making those decisions looked like?”

An unjustified decision?

Following the conversation on Twitter, Nora Shramek denounces above all the decision-making power, beyond the development studio itself.

I do NOT blame EA, Disney…etc. I say that individuals have power in the process. If these individuals have massive privilege and the nature of their life experience shields them from the bigger picture, that means they need to be more intentional in their choices.

She also mentions the racist nature of certain comments. within the studio and without denouncing anyone, she adds:

The worst thing I’ve heard is when someone (I’m not going to give any information here) said, “I think all black people should have brighter skin because black people have brighter skin.” fatter than the others. He looks at me. “Right Nora? Me: What’s wrong with you?

Anxious to have just wanted highlight systemic issues » and share his « personal experience of an event “, Nora Shramek ended up locking the discussion on Twitter and did not wish to add comments.

And so it was finally Cameron Monaghan who lent his features and his voice to a male and white character, named Cal Kestisand that fans hope to find in the continuation of his adventures with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 2.
