Star Wars Resistance Video Introduces The Cast; New Poster Released
Here are the new Resistances aces.
This October, a next Star Wars animated series is coming to the Disney Channel. Titled Star Wars Resistance, the pilot-focused series features some familiar faces, like BB-8, and we now know a bit more about the new cast thanks to a video detailing who they are as well as a new poster.
Star Wars Resistance follows Kazunda Xiono, a young pilot for the Resistance who is given the top secret mission of investigating the First Order. Obviously, this series takes place during the current trilogy of Star Wars films, before Force Awakens. Disney tweeted out the new poster for the upcoming series, which you can see below.
The stars of the series are shown off in the new poster. There's Tam (Suzie McGrath), a former racer and current mechanic; Neeku (Josh Brener), the heart of the team who also happens to be a genius; Kaz (Christopher Sean), the First Order spy; and Torra (Myrna Velasco), whom we don't know much about yet.
A new video--seen above--details most of the new cast, talking with the voice actors that play them. Yeager (Scott Lawrence) is introduced. He's a former Rebel pilot and father figure for the main cast. He keeps getting pulled back into the action to fight the good fight. Additionally, we learned that Neeku is the light at the end of the dark tunnel for the series. He's incredibly positive and intelligent, but a bit naive. Returning to this series is Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Leia Organa (Rachel Buter), and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie).
Hopefully, Star Wars Resistance will go down as amazing and epic as The Clone Wars and Rebels. Considering Dave Filoni--the creator of the previously mentioned series--is behind the new show, we should be in good hands. Resistance comes to the Disney Channel on October 7.
