The animated adventures of Kazuda Xiono will continue in season two…
Despite a lacklustre response from adult Star Wars fans around the world and the series being criticised for its over-reliance on slapstick comedy, Star Wars: Resistance has been officially renewed for a second season.
The announcement comes hot on the heels of the release of the mid-season trailer which has confirmed the series debut of a familiar villain from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The infamous General Hux, First Order Commander and occasional thorn in the side of Kylo Ren will be making a special appearance in the second half of the first season which helps to enhance the First Order’s presence on the Colossus.
The out-of-this-galaxy animated series Star Wars Resistance, set in the Star Wars universe just before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, will return for a second season on Disney Channel in fall 2019.
The series follows Kazuda Xiono (“Kaz”), a young pilot recruited by the Resistance for a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. If you need more high-flying fun now, season one continues this Sunday, January 13 (10–10:30 p.m. EST/PST), on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW.
The Star Wars Resistance voice cast includes Christopher Sean (Days of Our Lives) as Kazuda Xiono; Suzie McGrath (East Enders) as Tam Ryvora; Scott Lawrence (Legion) as Jarek Yeager; Myrna Velasco (Elena of Avalor) as Torra Doza; Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) as Neeku Vozo; Donald Faison (Scrubs) as Hype Fazon; Jim Rash (Community) and Bobby Moynihan (DuckTales) as Flix and Orka, respectively; Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) as Poe Dameron; and Gwendoline Christie Star Wars: The Last Jedi) as Captain Phasma.
Despite its aforementioned lukewarm reception from legions of adult fans, kids of all ages have embraced the animated space adventures of Kazuda Xiono and his team of racers and they are officially here to stay.
Star Wars Resistance returns from its Christmas hiatus this January.
