Disney put up this first look at the main cast of Star Wars: Resistance , the new animated show coming to Disney Channel October 7th, & honestly, I wasn't expecting it to be this aimed at kids. I've been defending Star Wars animation since Clone Wars . Stating over & over it wasn't really made with kids in mind. This one has a different feel straight out the gate. It's definitely aimed more at children than it's predecessors. Don't get me wrong, I'm still going to watch it. I am lowering my expectations a little though. The overall storyline seems intriguing, but I question how serious any ramifications will be, given the tone implied from this look. On another note, my just turned 5 daughter is going to absolutely love this. Nonetheless, it's Star Wars , I'm curious no matter what. Bring it on. What are y'all's thoughts on this new, more juvenile look at the galaxy far, far away? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Here's a first look at what we can expect October 7th on the Disney Channel with the premiere of Star Wars: Resistance . As usual with Star Wars I'm not jumping up & down with the animation style. That said however Star Wars animation has delivered some of the most amazing stories outside the original trilogy. The Clone Wars & Rebels weren't perfect every episode, but as a whole were something I thoroughly enjoyed. Much more than I ever thought I would. Especially when you factor in that I don't like the animation style of neither. This one has me really intrigued too. I hope this contains a good amount of building on the existence of the Resistance. I've read the books so I'm pretty adept with what's going in the New Republic. They've just let this militia of sorts exist with little explanation. I'm hoping this does a good job of clearing some of that up. The preview looks good though. Kinda Star Wars meets Top Gun . I'm in. Hopefully, this will keep the tradition Star Wars animation has had for me. I dug it, what'd y'all think though? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Dave Filoni is a lesser known name, that has added more to the Star Wars universe than most. Co-creator of The Clone Wars & executive producer of Rebels , this guy has overseen some of the most amazing stories to come out of the universe. EW just announced he's up to it again with a new anime inspired show for Disney Channel & then Disney XD. Star Wars Resistance will premiere in the fall & give us some history on the resistance we followed into The Force Awakens . The series will follow Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited to help spy on the First Order. He'll even run into Poe Dameron & Captain Phasma. With Oscar Isaac & Gwendoline Christie coming in to provide the voices by the way. This not only sounds awesome, it could answer so many questions that both the new movies leave wide open. Also executive-produced by Athena Portillo, Justin Ridge, & Brandon Auman, with art direction by Amy Beth Christenson, it will include the voice talents of Christopher Sean, Suzie McGrath, Scott Lawrence, Myrna Velasco, Josh Brener, Donald Faison, Bobby Moynihan, Jim Rash, and Rachel Butera. Can't wait for more details on this one. Will we finally get some Snoke background? What do y'all think? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
