Meet Team Fireball in new featurette for Star Wars: Resistance

With Star Wars: Rebels having wrapped up its four-season run earlier this year, the stage is set for the next animated STAR WARS series to be unleashed. Taking place decades after the events of RETURN OF THE JEDI but before the events of THE FORCE AWAKENS, Star Wars: Resistance follows Kazuda Xiono (Christopher Sean), a young pilot who is recruited into the Resistance to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. A new featurette for the upcoming series has arrived which introduces us to Team Fireball, a group of mechanics and pilots who work at the Colossus, a massive re-fueling outpost. Along with Kazuda Xiono, we get to learn a little more about Jarek Yeager (Scott Lawrence), a former Rebel who keeps getting pulled back in to the action, Tam Ryvora (Suzie McGrath), a mechanic who used to be a racer before she lost her ship, and Neeku (Josh Brener), a naive genius who is overly optimistic.

The first trailer for Star Wars: Resistance wasn't my cup of tea, but I have to remind myself that Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels didn't exactly draw me in right away either; also, you know, the series is aimed at a younger audience.

The official synopsis for Star Wars: Resistance:

In the one-hour premiere titled “The Recruit,” Poe and BB-8 assign newly-appointed spy Kaz to the Colossus, a massive aircraft re-fueling platform on an outer rim water planet, home to colorful new aliens, droids and creatures. While undercover, Kaz works as a mechanic and lives with Poe’s old friend Yeager, a veteran pilot who operates a starship repair shop run by his crew: Tam, Neeku and their old battered astromech droid, Bucket. Kaz soon finds himself in over his head with his new friend BB-8 as he’ll have to compete in dangerous sky races, keep his mission a secret from his newfound family, and avoid the danger of the First Order.

Star Wars: Resistance will debut on October 7, 2018.
