Set about six months before The Force Awakens, Star Wars Resistance tells the story of 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.
The timing of the series isn’t mentioned in what was sent out Friday, but if it’s in the page’s meta description – which is there for search engine purposes, i.e. “When is Star Wars Resistance set?” – I doubt it was ever meant to be a secret.
Here’s Ruiz’s tweet:
Haven't seen this anywhere else. If you inspect Resistence page on https://t.co/dDkCx5APXe, it apparently confirms that #StarWarsResistance is going to take place around 6 months before #TheForceAwakens pic.twitter.com/F2NfPTXfhj
