Lucasfilm is Developing Something Called STAR WARS: RESISTANCE; Could it Be a New Series?
It has been discovered that Lucasfilm has four new registrations filed that revolve around something called Star Wars: Resistance. We have no confirmation of what this could be, but there are big plans for it in terms of tie-in merchandise. Because of those big plans, speculation is that this could be the possible name of a new series they are developing. This could be a new animated series, or it could be the live-action series that we've been hearing about! A couple weeks ago, it was confirmed by Disney that there are a few shows in development.
Some people might think that this could be a new comic, video game, book, or something like that, but all of that stuff is included in each of the filings that were made for Star Wars: Resistance, which also includes toys, and lots of other things. Whatever Star Wars: Resistance is, it's big. Here's a breakdown of what each filing covers:
87801117 – Toys, games and playthings; gymnastic and sporting articles (except clothing); hand-held units for playing electronic games for use with or without an external display screen or monitor; skins for covering and protecting apparatus; paper party favors; paper party hats; Christmas stockings; Christmas tree ornaments and decorations; snow globes
87801037– Clothing, footwear and headwear
87800997 – Paper and paper articles; cardboard and cardboard articles; printed matter; publications; books; photographs; portraits; paintings; photo-engravings; stationery; office and school supplies; school supply kits; temporary tattoo transfers; foam stamps; party bags; plastic sandwich bags; shopping bags
87800987 – Apparatus for recording, transmission, processing, and reproduction of sound, images, or data; digital media; audio books; audio and visual recordings; video game software; computer programs and software; downloadable electronic publications; downloadable game software; downloadable mobile applications; consumer electronics and accessories therefor; eyeglasses and sunglasses and accessories therefor; binoculars; decorative magnets; graduated rulers; microphones; helmets; flotation vests; protective face masks not for medical purposes; snorkels; swimming goggles; swim masks
As you can see, they are going to push a ridiculous amount of merch out of this Star Wars: Resistance thing. Until we find out more about this thing, we can all just speculate as to what this might end up being. When I think about the Resistance, the first thing that came to mind was that it is the small military force that was founded and led by Leia Organa to combat the First Order. Could this whole thing focus the origin and early stories of the Resistance? I guess we'll just have to wait and see!
