Star Wars: Resistance Revealed!

The next Star Wars animated series has been announced! Star Wars: Resistance will take place in the period before The Force Awakens and will focus on badass fighter pilots! Always a fun topic!

Star Wars Resistance 01

I loved The Clone Wars and Rebels was pretty darn good, so clearly the people behind these animated shows — like Dave Filoni — know what they’re doing. I’m definitely on board.

The new show will star fighter pilot Kazuda Xiono, who is recruited by the Resistance to spy on the First Order. We’ll get cameos from BB-8, Poe Dameron and Captain Phasma. That sounds pretty neat. Finn and Rey are probably way out of the loop, but eh, they get that whole first movie.

Han Solo and Chewbacca are also cruising around the galaxy during this period. So who knows what we’ll see!

Definitely looking forward to this one.

  1. I was really hoping Filoni would do something like Luke Skywalker’s Jedi Academy, focusing on Luke teaching Ben Solo and a bunch of new padawans. But I guess it makes more sense to do something like that after Ep IX.

    • That would have been nice, but I think they want to pick storylines that are less bound to the movies and the rigid continuity that’s already established. We know how Luke’s Jedi Academy ends. So there’d be no drama in Luke slowly growing nervous about Ben, or Ben being seduced by Snoke. And we’d have to watch a whole school of awesome Jedi kids knowing full well that Ben was going to slaughter them all in a couple years.

      Personally, I’m still waiting for Star Wars to do something that expands on Boba Fett. I’d love to be a fly on the wall in the room where they discuss why they haven’t yet.
