Extended Sneak Peek at Star Wars Resistance Offers Looks at First Order, Leia, and Poe

Disney has released an extended first look at Star Wars Resistance, which is a new anime show coming to the Disney Channel on October 7. This final trailer for the show easily provides the best look at its characters and world to-date. It also shows off the First Order for the first time, which seems to feature an all red TIE Advanced, a gold plated First Order Trooper, and of course Captain Phasma.

This preview also showed off General Leia for the first time, and gave additional looks at Poe Dameron. It also really helped to clear up the overall plot, which will see Kaz from the Resistance being a spy on a station that houses racing pilots and other travelers of the galaxy. He will be tasked with picking up information for the Resistance based on those he comes across on the station. It’s hinted that he exposes the First Order’s plan of creating new weaponry at a record clip, so he’ll more than likely be the one he first learns of Starkiller base, which is also briefly featured in this preview.

The one-hour series premiere of Star Wars Resistance will make its debut on October 7 on Disney Channel (10 p.m. ET/PT) and DisneyNOW. Two additional new episodes will be available via the DisneyNOW app and Disney Channel VOD, giving kids and families access to the series wherever and whenever they want to watch.
