Disney has released a new video featurette for Star Wars Resistance to formally introduce the main characters that will be prominently featured in the series. The video features cast and crew interviews, as well as clips from the upcoming anime to get fans familiar with the characters and world of the show.
Team Fireball is fully fleshed out with names being revealed for each character, as well as formal introductions to the actors playing them. We already knew that Kaz would be the main hero, but we got names for the rest of the Fireball team. Their mentor/mechanic is named Yeager. The black female pilot is called Tam, and finally the green alien pilot is called Neeku.
Of course existing characters will also appear in the show, so expect to see the likes of BB-8, Poe Dameron, and Captain Phasma. You’ll also see First Order Troopers and the early beginnings of the Order as a whole.
The show will premiere on October 7, 2018 at 10PM EST on the Disney Channel.
