Star Wars Resistance First Look Meet Team Fireball

Star Wars Resistance First Look Meet Team Fireball

Premiering Oct. 7 on Disney Channel, Star Wars Resistance stars Christopher Seam (Days of Our Lives), Bobby Mounihan (Ducktales), Suzie McGarth(EastEnders), Scott Lawrence (Legion), Josh Brener (Silicon Valley), Myrna Velasco (Elena of Avalor), Donald Faison (Scrubs), Jim Rash (Community) and Rachel Butera (A Fowl American).

In the exclusive new video above, creator Dave Filoni (The Clone Wars and Rebels) and his own Resistance team give us a preview of Kaz's colleagues on the ship, who are also his crew as he helps Team Fireball earn extra credits through stunt flying and racing.

Now Playing: Watch this: Star Wars Resistance shows Poe Dameron, BB-8 giving out.

The original trilogy of films established that the more heroic members of the Rebel Alliance could survive any ordeal, though these new films, including Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, has shown that Lucasfilm has no problem killing off any character when the story demands it.

The high-flying adventure series - which takes place prior to the events of The Force Awakens and expands the Star Wars universe - follows Kazuda Xiono ("Kaz"), a young pilot recruited by the Resistance for a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. His main contact is Yeager, a former Rebellion pilot who is trying to live a quiet life as a mechanic, at least before Kaz showed up.

Tam Ryvora: A fellow mechanic who used to be a racer herself before she lost her ship.

Officials should unite against American pressure, he said, since publicising differences would only make the nation more unhappy. Conservative opponents of Rouhani, who have long opposed his outreach to the West, are smelling blood.

"She's tough and no-nonsense, and has attitude", McGrath says of Tam.

Neeku: A green, horny-toad-looking alien who's a bit naive, and usually dorky and cheerful. "No no matter what kind of day you're having, Neeku is having a great day".

Rounding out the cast is Bucket, the skeletal-looking astromech droid who is fond of wearing X-wing fighter pilot helmets.

The new series will also feature Poe Dameron and Captain Phasma with actors Oscar Isaac and Gwendoline Christie respectively reprising their roles. Kaz soon finds himself in over his head with his new friend BB-8 as he'll have to compete in risky sky races, keep his mission a secret from his newfound family, and avoid the danger of the First Order.

Star Wars Resistance will air October 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel with encore runs on Disney XD.
