Star Wars Resistance: Synopsis revealed for the first five episodes of new series


Want to know more about Star Wars Resistance? Disney has released the synopsis for the first five episodes, and has announced a few special guest stars.

The animated series Star Wars Resistance is coming soon. The show premieres Sunday, October 7, following the adventures of pilots as they try to spy on the First Order.

The show centers on X-wing pilot Kazuda Xiono who is recruited by Poe Dameron to spy on the First Order. Kaz isn’t exactly a spy, which probably makes him a good one and a bad one all at the same time. As we get closer to the Disney XD show, Disney has released the synopsis for the first five episodes of the new show.
