According to our good friend Jason over at MakingStarWars.net the highly anticipated new Star Wars animated series, Star Wars Resistance, will premiere Sunday October 7th at 10:00pm on the Disney Channel.
While we've known for some time that the 22-episode premiere season would begin this fall, we had no official date until now. Worth noting that for a children's show, that's a pretty late time slot on a school night so look for a Disney XD date as well most likely a day or two later.
Here's the official announcement about the show that was made back in late April...
This fall, welcome to the Resistance!
StarWars.com is thrilled to announce that production has begun on Star Wars Resistance, an exciting new animated adventure series about Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance and tasked with a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. It will premiere this fall on Disney Channel in the U.S. and thereafter, on Disney XD and around the world.
Featuring the high-flying adventure that audiences of all ages have come to expect from Star Wars, Star Wars Resistance — set in the time prior to Star Wars: The Force Awakens — will feature the 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.
More recently, we got a synopsis for the premiere episode titled, "The Recruit"...
Resistance fighter Poe Dameron tasks young pilot Kazuda “Kaz” Xiono with spying on the First Order. At the time, little was known about the secretive organization and its strength.
In order to fulfill his mission, Kaz travels to the space station Colossus, which is being used by many ships as a port to refuel and do repairs. However, there are also dangerous races taking place there. After Kaz bragged with his piloting skills at his arrival there, he is soon drawn into one of the races…
With a seemingly lack of information or news as of late about Dave Filoni's latest creation, this is welcome news for fans and should mean that a trailer isn't too far behind.
Stay tuned for more information as it comes in!
