When Star Wars Rebels concluded earlier this year, it broke many people’s hearts and left a void that some feared couldn’t be filled. Since then a new live action series has been confirmed as well as a new animated series. The upcoming animated Star Wars TV show, Resistance, has now been given an expected air date.
Rebels, while it had it’s lulls, done a fantastic job expanding the universe, laying the seeds of new and never before seen, force powers and also introduced a near paradoxical time travel loop that could be used down the line. We also had a call back to some older Star Wars links with destiny and sacrifice featuring heavily in the last few episodes.
Produced by Lucasfilm, the show, first announced in April, will follow on from the Rebels, which concluded its fourth season in March. Character art for the new series was previewed during a recent Disney event in France
Star Wars: Resistance will air on Disney XD and is set to debut in October. The show will follow the adventures of a new character, Kazuda Xiono, who is described as “a young pilot recruited to help spy on the First Order”.
Gwendoline Christie and Oscar Isaac (both pictured above) will reprise their roles from the live-action Star Wars films by lending their voices to the characters of Captain Phasma and Poe Dameron, while BB-8 will also feature.
