STAR WARS RESISTANCE
#1
Star Wars Resistance, Anime-Inspired Series, Set for Fall Debut
All-new animated series will focus on the era before Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

This fall, welcome to the Resistance!

StarWars.com is thrilled to announce that production has begun on Star Wars Resistance, an exciting new animated adventure series about Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance and tasked with a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. It will premiere this fall on Disney Channel in the U.S. and thereafter, on Disney XD and around the world.

Featuring the high-flying adventure that audiences of all ages have come to expect from Star Wars, Star Wars Resistance — set in the time prior to Star Wars: The Force Awakens — will feature the beloved droid BB-8 alongside ace pilots, colorful new characters and appearances by fan favorites including Poe Dameron and Captain Phasma, voiced by actors Oscar Isaac and Gwendoline Christie, respectively.

The series was created by renowned Lucasfilm Animation veteran Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels); executive-produced by Athena Portillo (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), Justin Ridge (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) and Brandon Auman (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles); and art-directed by Amy Beth Christenson (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels).

“The idea for Star Wars Resistance came out of my interest in World War II aircraft and fighter pilots” said Filoni. “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.”

Marc Buhaj, senior vice president, Programming and general manager, Disney XD, said, “Our colleagues at Lucasfilm have created a compelling narrative for an untold moment in the Star Wars galaxy, and we are excited to partner with them again on this new original series. Star Wars Resistance will bring viewers across generations an engaging story with heart, humor and both new and familiar characters.”

In addition to Isaac and Christie, the voice cast includes actors 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).

Oh yeah, no hesitation on adding this to my DVR schedule. Filoni is 2 for 2 with SW animated shows and I strongly suspect this one will be just as good.

This going to be another Disney XD cartoon where everything looks like one person half assed a flash cartoon ten years ago? The banner imagine in the link is already giving me flashbacks to the garbage tier animation and art in Star Wars Forces of Destiny.

Leto ii, what's "edgy" about saying many Disney XD cartoons look terrible? Have you see Forces of Destiny, Avengers Assemble, their newish Spider-Man cartoon, and Guardians of the Galaxy? They've got a animation quality lower than Archer without the fidelity of the images. It's like the laziness of flash animation with drawing a good image to manipulate. Look at this:





It's like someone's SFW Star Wars Newgrounds flash cartoon.

The style in the banner of that announcement looks very much the same, which gives me no hope for this at the moment. Now if the announcement came with some info like Passion Animation Studios (who did those great Ant-Man cartoons) was behind this or something that'd be interesting, but there's not really anything there, and the little that is is reminding me of something that looked terrible. Didn't know it was controversial to note the subpar quality of Disney XD's action cartoons

I could never get into any version of Clone Wars, but Rebels was a lot of fun and helped re-establish the new canon in the wake of the Expanded Universe getting shut down. I'm willing to give this one a fair shot.

If they get everything else right and it's just the animation that sucks, I'm cool with it. If it has good stories and characters in a Star Wars setting, fuck it - they can use stick figures drawn in the corner of a high school math book for all I care.

The main character's name is Kazuda “Kaz” Xiono

Quote: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…

Why did I not notice until just now that Big Head from Silicon Valley is playing one of the lead roles on this show?

Why did I not notice until just now that Big Head from Silicon Valley is actually Baghead from Silicon Valley?

Ummm....not gonna lie, if you didn’t tell me that it was Star Wars, I would have thought that was some generic YA sci-fi show.

I've had mixed feelings over the Star Wars animation shows they've put out over the years, so I'm not quite sold on this. But I do really, really, really wish Disney and Lucasfilm would get their act together and give us a live-action TV series. I don't even care what time period its set in, just a weekly live-action show would be much preferable to these animation shows.

Bruh they've been developing a live action show for a while now. One version or another has been in development hell ever since the prequels, but lately it's gotten some real traction with Jon Fraveau at the helm, so we'll see. The hangup has always been making it look not cheap, and be up to snuff with the movies. I guess not until Disney willing to throw all its money at it has it finally been possible. IIRC, the concept of Rebels was suppoed in live action, but became animated instead to save money.

As to this show, eh, looks too silly for its own good. Hopefully there's some decent drama in it. But I'd wish western shows would stop saying how anime-like their animation is. This is not even. The only shows that have come close are Avatar/Korra, and Netflix's Voltron and Castlevaia. I honestly thought Castlevania was an actual anime, or at least produced by an anime studio, until I found out that it's not. Good shit.

Oh and was that a golden stormtrooper I saw? It totally was wasn't it?
Git' in under mah belly!

The racing angle is giving me bad Heavy Gear The Series vibes. Where they took a property that was about a massive planetary mech war and turned it into an Extreme Sports Competition.

The production design looks Cowboy Bebop AF, except for the characters.

"Set six months before THE FORCE AWAKENS, STAR WARS RESISTANCE tells the story of Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance and tasked with a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order."

It won't take long for this show to go beyond THE LAST JEDI. That means the new character, Kazuda Xiono, will probably be going on adventures with Rey, Finn, Poe and Rose. If he's undercover, he'll probably encounter Hux, Kylo and the Knights of Ren at some point. Perhaps J.J. will even include Kaz in a live action cameo in EPISODE IX.
