Torra is onto Kaz in Resistance’s ‘Secrets and Holograms’

Shockingly, someone actually gets suspicious of Kaz in this Sunday’s “Secrets and Holograms.” Also, some garbage!

When a determined Kaz tries to discover the truth about Captain Doza, he and Torra embark on an adventure where they uncover more about the Tower than either bargained for.

It’s race time (again) on Star Wars Resistance

We meet a famous racer with a connection to Yeager in “The Platform Classic,” Sunday’s new episode of Star Wars Resistance.

Kaz uses the upcoming “Platform Classic” to reunite Yeager with someone from his past, Marcus – who happens to be in deep with the Guavian Death Gang. After Marcus’ mechanic is kidnapped, Kaz assists him in preparing for the race, learning more about Yeager in the process.

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:

Resistance roundup: Show will eventually overlap with movies, cast interviews

More details on Star Wars Resistance, including the return of Greg Proops, more on racing, and details on actor Bobby Moynihan’s character, who hasn’t had an official reveal yet. We also get some insights on why they picked the show’s timeline placement of six months before The Force Awakens.

“It’s a little hard for the younger fans to wrap their heads around it if it was, say 15 years before The Force Awakens,” [Head writer Brandon] Auman explains. “Then it’s a very nebulous timeline. You’re kind of not sure. The fact that we’ve got Poe Dameron and BB-8 from the very beginning — kids and any fan of any age automatically just know… ‘This is the new movies, this is where it’s gonna take place,’ so it’s just easier. And it was just fun to kind of roll in and back up a little bit instead of just trying to follow exactly where the movies are at.”

The show will even overlap with The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi… Eventually.

Meet Resistance’s Team Fireball

Meet the cast of Resistance – or at least the “Team Fireball” portion: Kazuda Xiono (Christopher Sean), Jarek Yeager (Scott Lawrence), Tam Ryvora (Suzie McGrath), and Neeku Vozo (Josh Brener).

The characters now have entries on the Databank as well: Kazuda, Jarek, Tam, Neeku and droid Bucket.

Still nothing on the frog, though. And I assume we’ll get some more details on the last key figure on the poster, Myrna Velasco’s Torra Doza, in another video, since she must have her own team.

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
– Suzie McGrath as Tam Ryvora
– Scott Lawrence as Jarek Yeager
– Myrna Velasco as Torra Doza
– Josh Brener as Neeku Vozo
– Donald Faison as Hype Fazon
– Jim Rash and Bobby Moynihan as Flix and Orka, respectively
– Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron
– Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma
– Rachel Butera as General Leia Organa

The series was created by Lucasfilm Animation’s Dave Filoni. The Clone Wars/Rebels vets Athena Portillo, Justin Ridge and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘ Brandon Auman are the executive producers, with another LFL vet, Amy Beth Christenson, as art director.

Star Wars Resistance is the next cartoon, debuts in the fall

The next Star Wars cartoon is officially announced, and it’s Resistance, set sometime before The Force Awakens. The “anime-inspired” series will star a character named Kazuda Xiono.

Xiono is “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 series will also feature BB-8 and appearances by Poe Dameron and Captain Phasma, with Oscar Isaac and Gwendoline Christie reprising their roles.
