Star Wars Resistance: 8 Best Episodes

Megan Crouse Mar 17, 2019

Want to give Star Wars Resistance a shot but don't know where to start? Here are the show's best (and most essential) episodes!

This Star Wars Resistance article contains major spoilers.

Fans had very high expectations for Star Wars Resistance, the follow up to the popular Star Wars Rebels, when it premiered last year. Unlike its predecessors, which take place during the Clone Wars and the days before the Original Trilogy, Resistance tells a new story set six months before The Force Awakens.

The show was an exciting prospect, especially since so much of the post-Return of the Jedi timeline remains a mystery, even after two movie sequels and a handful of books and comics. What would fans learn about days leading up to The Force Awakens from the show?

Season one never quite hit the heights of Rebels, with a low-stakes story struggling to engage with

Star Wars Resistance Season 1 Episode 3 Review – ‘The Triple Dark’

Ricky Church reviews Star Wars Resistance – ‘The Triple Dark’…

With the third (technically second due to the hour long premiere) episode of Star Wars Resistance, the new series set in the galaxy far, far away introduces more elements of the Colossus’ workings and the growing dynamics between Kaz and the pit crew. ‘The Triple Dark’ featured some more typical Star Wars elements than ‘The Recruit’ did, but still utilized more of its own voice and brand of humour than other Star Wars series have been known for. It was still entertaining, but audiences who want to see more of the Resistance and First Order may have to wait a bit longer and adopt the old Jedi lesson of patience.

‘Triple Dark’ mostly dealt with Kaz settling into his new role as a regular mechanic on Colossus, but he was very eager to start his real mission as a spy for

There Will Be Some Overlap Between Star Wars Resistance And The Force Awakens

Cast your eyes over the (very long) list of in-development Star Wars titles and you’ll notice that, like Resistance, the vast majority are rooted in that sweet spot between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.

There are exceptions to the trend, of course; Lucasfilm projects like Episode IX and the hotly-anticipated Mandalorian series from Jon Favreau are the real outliers. But when it comes to Star Wars Resistance, fans are beginning to fall in love with Poe, Leia, and rookie X-wing pilot Kazuda Xiono, who became “The Recruit” during Sunday’s well-received pilot.

It’s by no means perfect, but as far as animated Star Wars series go, it’s a welcome addition to the Lucasfilm family, and one that will no doubt help fill the void between now and Episode IX. And while it initially begins six months prior to The Force Awakens, Resistance scribe Brandon Auman

Star Wars Resistance Season 1 Episode 1 Review – ‘The Recruit’

Chris Cooper reviews the first episode of Star Wars Resistance

Here we go again, a new animated Star Wars show. I didn’t watch The Clone Wars, but I did see Rebels from the beginning, and loved it. Looking back at how that show started, and what I’ve now seen from Resistance, there are a lot of similarities.

An idealistic young man thrust into a new world filled with new and interesting characters. I wonder where we’ve seen that before…

First things first though. The naysayers. Go away! Tcw and Rebels both started off with animation that people didn’t like, characters that people found annoying, and lighter episodes without such high stakes or darkness. These shows are made primarily for kids, and they will mature as their audience does. Learn from the past and embrace this for what is it. It’s not a bad thing.

New Star Wars Resistance Trailer Features Poe, Leia And Phasma

Star Wars Resistance is the latest animated series to come from the mind of The Clone Wars and Rebels showrunner Dave Filoni. As the title suggests, it’s set prior to the events of The Force Awakens and will follow the Resistance in their fight against the First Order. The first trailer, released last month, promised a bright, fast-paced show that focused on a new bunch of Resistance pilots, but that doesn’t mean some familiar faces won’t pop up, too.

With just a week and a half to go until it arrives on Disney Xd, an extended look at the series has now dropped online and features Oscar Isaac reprising his role as Poe Dameron. The Resistance leader will act as a mentor to protagonist Kazuda “Kaz” Xiono, who wants to be an “ace pilot” but who Poe sends on a dangerous mission to spy on their enemies.

Star Wars Meets Top Gun in Rad Extended Trailer For Star Wars Resistance

“Being an ace is not all fun and games, it can be dangerous.”

If you’ve ever wanted to see what Top Gun might be like in a galaxy far far way, Star Wars Resistance is going to give you that! We’ve got a wicked cool new extended trailer for the animated series for you to watch today and I think it gives us our best look yet at the series and the exciting fast-paced tone. I love what I’m seeing from this show and it’s going to be a blast!

The show revolves around a character named Kazuda Xiono, who is described as "a young pilot recruited by the Resistance whose mission is to spy on the growing threat of the First Order." We also knew that Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) would be a part of this new Star Wars adventure.

Cool New Star Wars Resistance Promo Introduces Us To The Aces Pilot Team

I’ve got a great new featurette for Lucasfilm’s upcoming animated series Star Wars Resistance. It introduces us to a team of talented and daring pilots known as The Aces and in the process shows off a lot of cool new footage that offers us some insight into who these characters are and the role that they’ll play in the series. This team of pilots are hired to serve and protect the Colossus platform in the series. This is actually a group of fun and interesting characters. I’m pretty excited about this series and I like everything that I’ve seen from it so far!

When the show was first announced, we learned that it would revolve around a character named Kazuda Xiono, who is described as "a young pilot recruited by the Resistance whose mission is to spy on the growing threat of the First Order.

New Featurette and Poster For Star Wars Resistance Spotlights the Main Characters

A new piece of poster art and a featurette have been released for Lucasfilm's upcoming animated series Star Wars Resistance and they highlight the new characters that will fill the story and make up Team Fireball. I also like the little tagline that comes with it: "Some Heroes Stick To The Plan. Others Just Wing It."

The Fireball team consists of, Jarek Yeager, former Rebellion pilot who is trying to live a quiet life as a mechanic. That all changes when Poe and Leia ask for his help; Tam Ryvora, a fellow mechanic who used to be a racer herself before she lost her ship. “She’s tough, no-nonsense, she kind of has attitude"; Neeku, a green naive alien, who is an "unbelievably positive, happy character"; and Bucket, a droid who has a thing for wearing X-wing fighter pilot helmets.

Star Wars Resistance Assembles Its Ace Pilots With New Banner Image

X-wings, fall in!

Disney and Lucasfilm have peeled back the tarpaulin on a shiny new banner image for Star Wars Resistance, and this one is all about assembling the next generation of fighter pilots.

Front and center here is Kazuda “Kaz” Xiono (voiced by Days of Our Lives alum Christopher Sean), the Resistance’s latest recruit who hopes to spy on the First Order and impress his commanding officer, who just so happens to be Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac).

Remember, this newfangled animated series takes place before The Force Awakens, meaning Poe is yet to cross paths with Finn and Rey. It opens up a fascinating avenue for Resistance to explore, too, and we know from Rebels and The Clone Wars that Lucasfilm tends to strike lucky when dabbling with animated adventures set within the Star Wars universe.

Will Star Wars Resistance uphold that trend? Who knows, but below you’ll see Kaz and Co.

Synopsis For First Episode Of Star Wars Resistance Teases A Spy Mission

While we’ve now got a pretty good look at the time between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope in the form of Solo and Rogue One and on TV in Star Wars Rebels, the time period between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens remains considerably murkier.

That’s all set to change when Star Wars Resistance airs this fall, though, which sounds as if it’s going to flesh out this very interesting interim time in the universe as well as some of the Sequel Trilogy’s major characters. From what we understand, the series will run for 22 episodes and follows a young pilot named Kazuda (Kaz) Xiono.

He’ll be joined by familiar faces like Poe Dameron, Captain Phasma and Bb-8, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see other mainstays like General Leia, Kylo Ren, General Hux and Supreme Leader Snoke making some
