When it was announced that Star Wars Resistance would end after only two seasons, fans were taken a bit bu surprise – but according to the higher ups, that was always the plan.
“We were using the movies as a guideline,” executive producer Brandon Auman explained. “We felt that Season 1 is like, you know, it all takes place on a planet then Season 2, it now takes place in space. And now it’s going to lead, boom, right into the last movie.”
Makes sense – it’s easy to forget that Resistance is only Lucasfilm Animation’s third show – and the first to deal primarily with movies that are still in production.
The first season of Star Wars Resistance wraps up with Sunday’s ‘No Escape, Part 2.’
Kaz and Torra free Yeager and Doza, but Tam is going to be escorted off world by the First Order. Kaz comes up with a crazy plan, using Neeku’s help to upset the platform – literally. The First Order are temporarily thwarted, but return to destroy Kaz and crew…
Star Wars Resistance is officially on The Force Awakens’ turf with ‘No Escape, Part 1’.
Kaz and his friends devise a plan to break out Tam, Doza and Yeager. But before they can, troopers begin bearing down and Kaz and CB-23 are soon on their own. Kaz unites with Torra to save their friends and family, but they soon bear witness to the full might of the First Order.
Poe’s back as things continue to go downhill for Kaz, Team Fireball and the Colossus in ‘The Core Problem’, Sunday’s new episode of Star Wars Resistance. This time, they’re off to explore the Unknown Regions, because that’s something that has historically gone very well in this galaxy.
Poe and Kaz seek out an area of the Unknown Regions that their intel on the First Order is pointing to. After the unsettling discovery of multiple cored and broken planets, they must evade a series of First Order pilots in order to make it back alive.
The clip also reveals just how close the series has gotten to The Force Awakens. Check it out, plus more pics, under the cut.
