This fall, welcome to the Resistance!

StarWars.com is thrilled to announce that production has begun on Star Wars Resistance, an exciting new animated adventure series about Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance and tasked with a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. It will premiere this fall on Disney Channel in the U.S. and thereafter, on Disney XD and around the world.

Featuring the high-flying adventure that audiences of all ages have come to expect from Star Wars, Star Wars Resistance — set in the time prior to Star Wars: The Force Awakens — will feature the beloved droid BB-8 alongside ace pilots, colorful new characters and appearances by fan favorites including Poe Dameron and Captain Phasma, voiced by actors Oscar Isaac and Gwendoline Christie, respectively.

The series was created by renowned Lucasfilm Animation veteran Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels); executive-produced by Athena Portillo (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), Justin Ridge (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) and Brandon Auman (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles); and art-directed by Amy Beth Christenson (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels).

“The idea for Star Wars Resistance came out of my interest in World War II aircraft and fighter pilots” said Filoni. “My grandfather was a pilot and my uncle flew and restored planes, so that’s been a big influence on me. There’s a long history of high-speed racing in Star Wars, and I think we’ve captured that sense of excitement in an anime-inspired style, which is something the entire team has been wanting to do for a long time.”

Marc Buhaj, senior vice president, Programming and general manager, Disney XD, said, “Our colleagues at Lucasfilm have created a compelling narrative for an untold moment in the Star Wars galaxy, and we are excited to partner with them again on this new original series. Star Wars Resistance will bring viewers across generations an engaging story with heart, humor and both new and familiar characters.”

In addition to Isaac and Christie, the voice cast includes actors Christopher Sean (Days of Our Lives), Suzie McGrath (East Enders), Scott Lawrence (Legion), Myrna Velasco (Elena of Avalor), Josh Brener (Silicon Valley), Donald Faison (Scrubs), Bobby Moynihan (DuckTales), Jim Rash (Community), and Rachel Butera (Tammy’s Tiny Tea Time).

:thumbsup:

I'm in, but hopefully the animation is of better quality than what we go in "Rebels."

This will be "anime-inspired style".

Yeah, I enjoyed the first season of Rebels but the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse style of animation kept me from keeping up with it.

On the flipside, The Clone Wars animation was phenomenal but it was centered around Anakin and the Clone Wars. So never made it past season 1 on that one either.

Hoping this will be a perfect blend of style and content.

My interest in post-ROTJ Star Wars material is almost non-existant.

I only hope it isnt animation styled the way the new DuckTales is.

See, my interest would be post ROTJ but like starting the morning after the movie ended and showing the immediate aftermath of those events.

Anyways Iíll still watch, Filoni has earned it for me.

My interest in Star Wars anything after Disney acquired the brand has been nonexistent.

I really like the look of that. It's a really good looking style there. I'm actually pretty interested in Disney's streaming service so if this ever turns up there, that's probably the only way I'd watch it.

Hmm... so it's not a buddy film search for Ezra?

Nope, happens between ROTJ and TFA (though closer to TFA).

I don't think the buddy-film search for Ezra was a definite thing, it was mostly a hook they put in for the future and to show that somebody would try to look for him.

The animation style reminds me of Tron: Uprising. I like it, so I'm in.

From the stills, it looked cheap, but finally watching the trailer and seeing it in motion has me sold. It looks very slick and modern. Let's hope the story quality is at the level of TCW and Rebels.

Who was the First Order pilot? Was he supposed to be someone we know? I couldn't catch his name at the end.
