Star Wars Resistance: can you feel it?

Another animated helping of Star Wars is on the way with Star Wars Resistance, the tale of young Republic fighter ace Kazuda Xiono and his battles against the growing threat of the First Order.

Star Wars Resistance will appear on Disney Channel and Disney XD in the Autumn of 2018, and comes to you via the talented mind of Star Wars The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels‘ creator, Dave Filoni.

Dave told us that, “The idea for Star Wars Resistance came out of my interest in World War II aircraft and fighter pilots. 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.”

BB-8 will be in the series as will ace Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie). Also giving voice to various characters are 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).
