Watch the First STAR WARS RESISTANCE TrailerIt was only a few months ago that Disney and Lucasfilm announced the much anticipated follow-up to Dave Filoni’s Star Wars Rebels. Since then, fans have been eagerly awaiting more news about the pre-Sequel Trilogy-set show, and what’s more about its protagonist: a young Resistance pilot named Kazuda Xiono, a.k.a. Kaz. Well, today is our lucky day, as Lucasfilm has revealed both the trailer and the release date for Star Wars Resistance which will premiere at 10pm-11pm (PDT/EST) on October 7th on Disney Channel, DisneyNOW and Disney VOD!
Disney also released a more detailed synopsis of the characters and world we’ll be introduced to when the pilot hits our screens. “In the one-hour premiere titled ‘The Recruit,’ Poe 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,” Lucasfilms’ official press release revealed. :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 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.”
