‘Star Wars Resistance’ Extended Sneak Peak Takes You On an Action-Packed Spy Mission
Poe! Captain Phasma! General Leia! BB-8! Everyone’s back for the new Star Wars animated series and it looks like a straight-up blast.
Star Wars Resistance comes from Rebels alum Dave Filoni and the new extended sneak peek teases all the action and space battles to come. The series follows a pilot named Kazuda Xiono (voiced by Christopher Sean) who joins the Resistance and is handed quite the mission from Poe: to spy on the First Order. “Blend in, find out who’s loyal to the good guys and who isn’t.” Piece of cake!
The new series takes place decades after the Return of the Jedi and will lead into The Force Awakens. The best news is that means Captain Phasma is back, and of course she’s voiced by Gwendoline Christie. Oscar Isaac is voicing Poe, Leia will be voiced by Rachel Butera, and Adam Driver will voice his Kylo Ren. The rest of the voice cast includes Scrubs star Donald Faison, DuckTales voices Josh Brener, Bobby Moynihan and Jim Rash, along with Suzie McGrath, Scott Lawrence and Myrna Velasco.
