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

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

What to expect from Star Wars and Disney+

Now that the streaming service has a name, the marketing for Disney+ has really begun… Along with some inklings of how it will work.

Per Vulture’s Josef Adalian, Star Wars will be one of the “five central content hubs” for the service (along with classic Disney, Marvel, Pixar and National Geographic) so there won’t be much need for Netflix-style scrolling.

We also know that they’re aiming for the monthly price to be less than Netflix (cheapest plan: $7.99). Disney’s ESPN+ streaming service, which launched earlier this year, currently charges $4.99 a month. So I suspect we’ll be looking at something that’ll run fans $5-7 a month. (And maybe even some savings if bundled with an ESPN+ or Hulu subscription?)

But! The content. What’s coming for Star Wars? Here’s what we know for sure, some speculation about what else may be in play, and what we definitely won’t see.

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:

No hosted recap show for Resistance

Resistance isn’t getting the full Rebels Recon treatment. “I am not doing a hosted show for Resistance,” Recon/The Star Wars Show host Andi Gutierrez tweeted overnight after a fan question.

Resistance does have two smaller shows – Resistance Rewind and Bucket’s List – but neither is quite as extensive as Recon was.

I have some suspicions – it’s possible The Mandalorian will get a Recon-like show and even with that not starting until at least 2019, it’s likely going to overlap with Resistance. Maybe Recon’s demographics was just old, long-obsessed folks like us, who don’t really need further encouragement. Or, most likely, the space and effort for a second hosted show is being filled by new kid Our Star Wars Stories, hosted by Jordan Hembrough.

Gutierrez continues to host The Star Wars Show with Anthony Carboni. Maybe they can introduce a Pablo-with-coffee segment?
