The characters from Dave Filoni’s all-new Star Wars series are unveiled to the world.
With Star Wars: Rebels coming to an end at the climax of its fourth season many fans have been eagerly awaiting news of his next endeavour for Lucasfilm Animation. The showrunner has played a pivotal role in the Star Wars franchise alongside his mentor, George Lucas for a number of years and has continued to do so since the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney.
To many, the writer/director is an icon. To others an inspiration. And his projects are some of the most highly regarded amongst the devoted fanbase of the saga. So, when Lucasfilm announced to the world that his next project would be an all-new show titled Star Wars: Resistance, the fans were sent into euphoria. Speculation about the show ran wild, with many hoping to discover the fate of Rebels characters Grand Admiral Thrawn and Ezra Bridger, but it is onto the shoulders of a new character, Kazuda Xiono that responsibility of Star Wars: Resistance lies.
A recent Disney France Partners Event has revealed a fresh look at the all-new series including our first look at Captain Phasma and her First Order army, as well as Resistance hero Poe Dameron and lead character Kazuda Xiono. The animation style is strikingly familiar and is very reminiscent of the style utilised in the closing stages of Star Wars: Rebels that depicted the Ghost crew in their glory.
Sadly, this new image doesn’t reveal anything major about the show or its plotline but knowing Filoni we are set for a rollercoaster ride adventure when Star Wars: Resistance arrives on our screens.
The series is expected to debut on Disney XD is the United States this October. Hopefully, the rest of the world won’t have to wait too long to embrace Filoni’s next adventure into the galaxy far, far away.
Until then, watch this space.
The Future of the Force. The future of pop culture writing.
