Star Wars Resistance - Dave Filoni's next animation

Recommended Posts

So this is what Dave Filoni is doing after Clone Wars and Rebels. It is set prior to The Force Awakens and will follow Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance and tasked with a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order.

 

Seemingly dropping the CG of the prior shows and going for an anime-inspired look. The article says it will feature BB-8, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron and Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma. But I wouldn't be surprised if it's guest appearances rather than regular. It's coming in autumn.

Looks beautiful, but the main character seems like a bit of an annoying cunt.

 

So was Ahsoka and look how that turned out.  Looks stunning and I have absolute faith in Dave Filoni. 

 

Taking bets on how long before Ahsoka, Ezra, Sabine and Thrawn turn up. 

 

EDIT: Turns out Dave FIloni isn't actually doing this, he's there but not day to day as he's working on Clone Wars and something else.

The first three episodes of this are now ‘available’.

 

Just watched the first two so far and they’re perfectly enjoyable. About as good as Rebels was when it first started and that turned into something great.

Its on Disney XD starting this Saturday in the UK.

 

As per usual, Disney have scheduled it to be aired about a dozen times per episode but have neglected to allow it to be series linked. :angry:

Three in, and it’s very ‘kid friendly’ with lots of pratfalls and gurning. The stories are very thin. Doesn’t help the main character is an utter knob, and the good/evil mentors are the two worst characters in the TFA/TLJ (Phasma/Poe).

 

But it is lovely to look at.

Did anyone stick with this? I got a fair way through season 1 without ever really warming to it, and I was wondering if it got any better.

I was disappointed with S1 too, but then at the very end they finally leave the planet, which improves things. I always felt that held it back. 
 

That green cunt never improves though.

You can see Filioni doesn't have much to do with it, Kaz is a twat, almost every episode is him being a clumsy tit and I've never warmed to him, I don't think much of any of it to be honest, I'm looking forward to it being done.

I don't know what it is about the Star Wars cartoons but they start off very kiddie and take a while to mature up.

 

I came close to dropping Resistance multiple times in S1, but it definitely improves late on.

I dunno, I'm finding this the most kiddified of all the modern SW animated series and it makes for a hard watch. Kaz is far too idiotic and clumsy to make an effective hero, I warmed to Ashoka and Ezra far easier. Will stick with it to see how it pans out from a bigger story perspective.

 

I do like the animation style though, plus it is great to see a huge variety of aliens from across all of the franchise represented.
