Star Wars Resistance, an Anime-Inspired Series Debuts this Fall
With the end of Star Wars Rebels, many wondered what would be next when it comes to Star Wars related animated shows on television. We’ve got that answered with Star Wars Resistance. The anime-inspired series focuses on Kazuda Xiono, a young Resistance pilot. Xiono is tasked with the mission to spy on the growing First Order threat.
The series is set before Star Wars: The Force Awakens and will feature familiar characters from the film such as BB-8, Poe Dameron, and Captain Phasma. Oscar Isaac will voice Dameron and Gwendoline Christie will voice Phasma.
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).
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 series will debut this fall on the Disney Channel in the U.S. and thereafter, on Disney XS and around the world.
