New Story Details Revealed For The STAR WARS RESISTANCE Animated Series
If you're excited about Lucasfilm's new animated series Star Wars Resistance, I've got some cool new story details for you that you'll want to check out.
When the show was first announced, we learned that it would revolve around a character named Kazuda Xiono, who is described as "a young pilot recruited by the Resistance whose mission is to spy on the growing threat of the First Order." We also knew that Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) would be a part of this new Star Wars adventure.
Today a synopsis for the series has found its way online which offers us some new details on the main character and the plot of the show. This synopsis comes from the German Disney-XD channel (via ScreenRant) and this is a translation of the synopsis:
Resistance fighter Poe Dameron tasks young pilot Kazuda “Kaz” Xiono with spying on the First Order. At the time, little was known about the secretive organization and its strength.
In order to fulfill his mission, Kaz travels to the space station Colossus, which is being used by many ships as a port to refuel and do repairs. However, there are also dangerous races taking place there. After Kaz bragged with his piloting skills at his arrival there, he is soon drawn into one of the races…
I'm extremely excited about this show and I like what I'm reading here regarding the story. This is sure to make for a fun and exciting series! I like that Poe is going to have a decent sized part to play in it and it will be interesting to see how the story arc for this Kaz character plays out.
It's also being reported that the first season of Star Wars Resistance will run for 22 episodes, and the first episode will be titled "The Recruit." We got our first look at some of the character in the series here.
Lucasfilm Animation veteran Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) created the series. Several other producers of those previous series will join him as producers including Athena Portillo, Justin Ridge and Brandon Auman. When talking about the inspiration behind the series, Filoni previously said:
"The idea for Star Wars Resistance came out of my interest in World War II aircraft and fighter pilots. My grandfather was a pilot and my uncle flew and restored planes, so that's been a big influence on me. There's a long history of high-speed racing in Star Wars, and I think we've captured that sense of excitement in an anime-inspired style, which is something the entire team has been wanting to do for a long time."
I love that. The rest of the voice cast includes Christopher Sean (Days of Our Lives), Suzie McGrath (East Enders), Scott Lawrence(Legion), Myrna Velasco (Elena of Avalor), Josh Brener (Silicon Valley), Donald Faison(Scrubs), Bobby Moynihan (DuckTales), Jim Rash (Community) and Rachel Butera(Tammy's Tiny Tea Time).
It was also reported that the show will make its debut in October on Disney XD.
