A whole new set of pilots are ready to take on the rise of the First Order in a galaxy far far away this fall. With Star Wars: Resistance, the latest animated Star Wars show, just over a month away from its premiere, Disney & Lucasfilm have shared the first poster starring series lead Kazuno Xiono surrounded by a handful of other Resistance pilots.
In the one-hour premiere, titled “The Recruit,” Poe Dameron and BB-8 assign newly appointed spy Kaz to the Colossus, a massive aircraft re-fueling platform on an Outer Rim water planet, home to colorful new aliens, droids and creatures. While undercover, Kaz works as a mechanic and lives with Poe’s old friend Yeager, a veteran pilot who operates a starship repair shop run by his crew: Tam, Neeku and their old battered astromech droid, Bucket. Kaz soon finds himself in over his head with his new friend BB-8 as he’ll have to compete in dangerous sky races, keep his mission a secret from his newfound family, and avoid the danger of the First Order.
The voice cast includes Christopher Sean, Suzie McGrath, Scott Lawrence, Myrna Velasco, Josh Brener, Donald Faison, Bobby Moynihan, Jim Rash and Rachel Butera. Star Wars Resistance debuts on October 07.
