Star Wars Resistance Trailer (Animated Series)

Well, since they were part of the resistance, mostly resisting.

The Disney Channel released the first trailer for Star Wars Resistance on Friday, a brand new animated series that explores the Star Wars universe prior to the events of The Force Awakens. Check out the first teaser.

Resistance fighter Poe Dameron tasks young pilot Kazuda "Kaz" Xiono with spying on the First Order. Naturally, it's home to a host of new aliens, droids and various other beings, and Kaz will be going undercover as a mechanic living with Poe's old friend and veteran pilot Yeager (Scott Lawrence), who runs a starship fix shop.

Always rolling around the periphery is BB-8, supplying vital information as Kaz keeps his true mission secret even from his friends. His agent is a monster negotiator.

Star Wars Resistance premieres Sunday, Oct. 7 on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW.

The Star Wars Resistance 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). Lucasfilm announced the news and was obtained by MakingStarWars.net, who shared the synopsis from the series premiere episode "The Pilot".

Take a look at the Star Wars Resistance trailer below.

What's the most important quality in a space pilot?

Featuring high-octane flight sequences and appearances by fan-favorite Star Wars film characters BB-8 and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), the first look at Star Wars Resistance sets up the basic premise for the show and does so with style. My grandfather was a pilot and my uncle flew and restored planes, so that's been a big influence on me. However, there are also risky races taking place there.
