New STAR WARS RESISTANCE animated series promises cameos by Poe Dameron and Captain Phasma
Ready to join the STAR WARS RESISTANCE? That’s the name of a new animated show, now in production for the Disney Channel. The show centers around Kazuda Xiono — a young pilot recruited by the Resistance — tasked with a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. It’s set for debut this fall.
The show will include 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 voice cast also 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”).
STAR WARS RESISTANCE will premiere on Disney Channel and Disney XD Fall 2018.
