Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett, the seven-episode series starring the most legendary bounty hunter in the George Lucas universe, traces the character’s story and inserts it into the new Disney canon. Since the Mickey Mouse company merged with Lucasfilm, the canonical line of the series has changed and has been embodied in films, television series, video games, comics, novels, etc. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, from Respawn Entertainment is one of these products, and one of its elements appears in the series. If you haven’t seen episode 5, beware, spoilers are coming.
Din Djarin, also known as Mando, returns to Tatooine in search of his new spaceship, since the Razor Quest was destroyed by Imperial troops in The Mandalorian. As it could not be otherwise, the person in charge of selling the ship is Peli Motto, the charismatic mechanic we met in the previous series and who had already made a cameo in episode 3 of The Book of Boba Fett. Apparently, the woman has incorporated a new droid at your service, nothing more and nothing less than a BD. It is the type of scout droid that accompanies Cal Kestis in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
Peli Motto also has a new acquisition, which is neither more nor less than a BD explorer droid, the same type of droid as BD-1, the droid of Cal Kestis in #StarWars Jedi: Fallen Order. pic.twitter.com/SmRfjVSPBj

Is it BD-1 or another droid?
We know that Cal Kestis’ droid is called BD-1, but in the episode of The Book of Boba Fett it is not clear if it is the same robot in flesh and blood (cables and chips, better said) or if we are dealing with a different android even from the same family. Peli Motto refers to it simply as BD, without specifying the subsequent numbering. If it is finally confirmed that it is BD-1, the questions that will have to be asked are what happened to the Jedi and why the robot ended up in the hands of mechanics.
Cal Kestis was a Padawan during the Purge that ended the Jedi Order. Later he reconnects with the Force to fight against the Galactic Empire. His fate may be clarified in the sequel of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which has already been officially announced.
