The First Order comes to Star Wars Resistance

Since several episodes of Star Wars Resistance dropped with the premiere, Saturday’s “The High Tower” is the first brand-new episode since the show’s debut earlier this month.

Looks like the First Order finally makes more than a token appearance, with the red-armored Major Vonreg taking point – and we also seem on track to see more of Torra Doza and her father, Colossus station operator, Captain Imanuel Doza.

Check under the cut for a clip and more pictures:

Meet Resistance’s team of Aces

We met Team Fireball, part of the Star Wars Resistance cast a few weeks ago: Now it’s time for some details on “the Aces,” pilots who protect the show’s main setting, the Colossus platform.

They include Myrna Velasco’s Torra Doza, Donald Faison’s Hype Fazon, Stephen Stanton’s Griff Halloran, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn’s Freya Fenris and the mysterious Bo Keevil. (Their ships, Blue Ace, Green Ace, Black Ace, Red Ace and Yellow Ace, plus the Fireball, all now have Databank entries.)

The video debuted on USA Today, who also talked to Dave Filoni.

The show will debut on October 7 on the Disney Channel and DisneyNOW.

First Star Wars Resistance trailer drops

Well, that was quick. As rumored, Resistance is coming on Sunday, October 7 to the Disney Channel, and we have a trailer!

We see Poe Dameron, BB-8 and even a glimpse of Phasma. Here’s some more details from StarWars.com:

We’re also thrilled to bring you intel on the first episode! In the one-hour premiere “The Recruit,” Poe and BB-8 assign Kaz to the Colossus, where he meets a cast of colorful new aliens, droids and creatures. While undercover to spy on the growing threat of the First Order, Kaz works as a mechanic and lives with Poe’s old friend Yeager — a veteran pilot who operates a starship repair shop run by his crew: Tam, Neeku and a battered old astromech called Bucket.

“Can you imagine what it’s like to be an ace pilot?” Kaz asks.

Lucasfilm has also sent out the cast list with who’s playing who:

– Christopher Sean as Kazuda Xiono
