Star Wars Resistance

What were the likes of Poe Dameron and BB-8 up to in the time before Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Well, since they were part of the resistance, mostly resisting. It's an angle on the Star Wars universe that is explored in Rebels/Clone Wars man Dave Filoni's new series, Star Wars Resistance. Check out the first teaser...

Resistance finds Kazuda Xiono, AKA Kaz (Christoper Sean), a young pilot recruited by the Resistance for a top-secret spy mission aboard a a massive craft refuelling platform known as Colossus.

Going undercover, Kaz works as a mechanic and lives with Poe’s old friend Yeager (Scott Lawrence), a veteran pilot who operates a starship repair shop run by his crew: Tam (Suzie McGrath), Neeku (Josh Brener) and their old battered astromech droid, Bucket. Kaz soon finds himself in over his head with his newfound 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.

We can expect the likes of Captain Phasma to show up (with Gwendoline Christie) on voice duty, and while you can see them easily hiring Oscar Isaac back to bring Poe to life, how did they score BB-8? His agent is a monster negotiator. We're not kidding, this is the most recent file photo of him.

Star Wars Resistance will land on Stateside Disney channels on 7 October, and rolls out worldwide after that.
