The Resistance is coming this fall. The Star Wars Resistance debut is set for this Fall of 2018. This new animated adventure series will center around Kazuda Xiono. Kazuda is a young pilot who is recruited by the Resistance. He is given a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order.
Star Wars Resistance will premiere this fall on Disney Channel in the U.S. and thereafter, on Disney XD and around the world.
The show is set in the time prior to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We will see the beloved droid BB-8 alongside ace pilots as well as meet colorful new characters and be treated to appearances by fan favorites including Poe Dameron and Captain Phasma, voiced by actors Oscar Isaac and Gwendoline Christie, respectively.
Created by renowned Lucasfilm Animation veteran, Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), the show is 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). Amy Beth Christenson (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) serves as Art Director.
“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.”
“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,” said Senior Vice President, Programming and general manager, Disney XD, Marc Buhaj.
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).
We can’t wait to catch this exciting new show on Disney Channel when it premieres this fall!
