The main star of the show, Kazuda Xiono (voiced by Christopher Sean), is a Resistance operative tasked by Leia and Poe with being embedded in Fireball so he can use the Colossus as a base of operations for his real mission: To spy on the First Order.

Jarek Yeager: A former Rebellion pilot now trying to live a quiet life as a mechanic. 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.

He's on the right, and to his left is Tam Ryvora (East Enders' Suzie McGrath), a fellow mechanic who used to be a racer herself before she lost her ship.

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

A new behind-the-scenes reel introduces us to a few of the stars of this intriguing setting.

Queensland Police Minister Mark Ryan told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation 15 passengers had been found so far. Ward took them on a tour, pointing out the dangers of the mangroves.

"While undercover, Kaz works as a mechanic and lives with Poe's old friend Yeager, a veteran pilot who operates a starship fix shop run by his crew: Tam, Neeku and their old battered astromech droid, Bucket". Heading into Star Wars: Episode IX, it's unclear what state the Resistance could be in and whether their numbers grew, though star Oscar Isaac offered teases of the status of the organization. "He is this unbelievably positive, happy character", Brener says. While undercover, Kaz works as a mechanic and lives with Poe's old friend Yeager, a veteran pilot who operates a starship fix shop run by his crew: Tam, Neeku, and their old battered astromech droid, Bucket. He has seen better days, clearly, but he still has an important role to play in the coming fight.

And yes, the beloved roly-poly droid BB-8 will be in the show too.

In addition to Christie and Isaac, other actors in the series include Myrna Velasco, Donald Faison, Bobby Moynihan, Jim Rash and Rachel Butera.

Expect more to come as Star Wars: Resistance heads toward its October 7 debut on the Disney Channel and DisneyNow.
