A first look trailer for the new series has been released, which you can check out the Star Wars Resistance trailer in the player below!

Star Wars Resistance is bringing Poe Dameron, BB-8 and new Resistance spy Kazuda Xiono to life in an animated series debuting on the Disney Channel on October 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Xiono gets his orders from the Poe Dameron-played by Oscar Isaac-and will be helped in his mission by everyone's new favorite astromech droid, BB-8.

Gwendoline Christie will resurrect chrome-armored Captain Phasma as one of the villains on the show, set before the events of The Force Awakens, when Supreme Leader Snoke and the First Order movement is an evolving danger to galactic peace.

Star Wars Resistance's one-hour premiere episode, titled "The Recruit", will introduce fans to a new corner of the franchise's sprawling universe, as Kaz is appointed to his undercover post on the Colossus, an aircraft refueling platform on an outer rim water planet.

"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".

Additional voice actors include Bobby Moynihan, Donald Faison, Christopher Sean, Suzie McGrath, Scott Lawrence, Myrna Velasco, Josh Brener, Jim Rash, and Rachel Butera. Filoni isn't serving as the showrunner for Resistance; he created it and left the day-to-day duties to executive producers Athena Portillo, Justin Ridge and Brandon Auman. "There's a long history of high-speed racing in Star Wars, and I think we've captured that sense of excitement in an anime-inspired style, which is something the entire team has been wanting to do for a long time".
