Star Wars Resistance

The new extended trailer for Star Wars Resistance has a lot of starship dogfighting action. The series is inspired by Japanese animation. Via the Verge:

Disney announced that it has begun production on a new animated Star Wars show, which will debut later this fall in the US on the Disney Channel. Star Wars Resistance will be set just before the events of The Force Awakens, and will follow a pilot named Kazuda Xiono, who is recruited into the Resistance movement.

The show is created by Dave Filoni, who was also behind Lucasfilm’s other two animated shows, The Clone Wars and Rebels. He notes that Resistance was inspired by “my interest in World War II aircraft and fighter pilots,” and says that the look of the show will be inspired by anime.

The show has cast Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live), Christopher Sean (Hawaii Five-0), Suzie McGrath (Eastenders), Scott Lawrence (Avatar), Myrna Velasco (Elena of Avalor), Josh Brener (Silicon Valley), Donald Faison (Scrubs), Jim Rash (Community), and Rachel Butera (Family Guy). Alongside their new characters, we’ll see some familiar faces as well: BB-8, Poe Dameron, and Captain Phasma. Oscar Isaac and Gwendoline Christie will return to voice their respective characters.
