‘Star Wars: Resistance‘ is coming and thanks to the German Disney XD channel we’ve just learned what the first installment of the 22-episode season will be about. The pilot is titled “The Recruit” and will take place after the events of “Return of the Jedi” but before “The Force Awakens.”
Fans of the films will be thrilled to know that both Oscar Isaac and Gwendoline Christie are set to voice their cinematic counterparts of Poe Dameron and Captain Phasma. We also know that BB-8 will be showing up at some point.
The first episode is described as:
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…
With what little we know of this time period being from the novels such as Claudia Grey’s ‘Bloodline’ and Delilah S. Dawson’s novel ‘Phasma,’ it is clear that the Resistance has a huge spy network in place. Part of what we’ll likely be seeing in this series is this network being formed and likely Kaz is going to be a crucial part of it.
Are you excited to see ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ show us the early years of the new Resistance being built from the ground up?
