Following the finale of Star Wars Rebels, it was unknown when audiences would get another helping of Star Wars animation. That was until Lucasfilm announced Star Wars Resistance, an animated show set during the time period between Return of The Jedi and The Force Awakens. It was teased that we would be seeing some familiar faces in the series, something that was teased in the synopsis for the first episode.
The German Disney-XD affiliate channel released a synopsis for the pilot episode, which was translated by Star Wars fan JediFlorian, teasing what to expect from the pilot episode, which is titled “The Recruit”:
Resistance fighter Poe Dameron tasks young pilot Kazuda “Kaz” Xiono with spying on the First Order. At the time, little was known about the secretive organization and its strength.
In order to fulfill his mission, Kaz travels to the space station Colossus, which is being used by many ships as a port to refuel and do repairs. However, there are also dangerous races taking place there. After Kaz bragged with his piloting skills at his arrival there, he is soon drawn into one of the races…
That’s right folks, we will be seeing Poe Dameron taking young Kaz under his wing in an attempt to investigate the First Order. Oscar Issac was announced to be returning to voice Poe, with Gwendoline Christie also joining the cast to bring Captain Phasma to the small screen. The rest of the cast has yet to have their characters announced, so it’s unclear who will be voicing young Kaz.
