Meet the characters in Disney's new animated series, Star Wars Resistance. Titled Star Wars Resistance, the pilot-focused series features some familiar faces, like BB-8, and we now know a bit more about the new cast thanks to a video detailing who they are as well as a new poster.

Renowned Lucasfilm Animation veteran Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) created the series; Athena Portillo (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), Justin Ridge (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) and Brandon Auman (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) serve as executive producers; and Amy Beth Christenson (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) is art director.

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. They need to try and win races to survive and make money.

Kaz is described as a much better pilot than a spy, although his mission has him keeping an eye on the First Order presence in the area.

Team Fireball is made up of Jarek Yeager (Scott Lawrence), Tam Ryvora (Suzie McGrath) and Neeku (Josh Brener), all of whom are working to restore an old ship named Fireball - named so because of its tendency to burst into flames.

Entertainment Weekly has debuted the new featurette, which fleshes out the main characters of the newest anime-style Star Wars series. "She's tough, no-nonsense, she kind of has attitude", McGrath says. And it looks like the scrappy characters of Star Wars Resistance are no different. The final member of the cast is Bucket, an older droid that works alongside BB-8. It's also been confirmed that Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones) and Oscar Issac (Annihlation) will reprise their roles as Captain Phasma and Poe Dameron for the series.

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