New Star Wars TV series for the UK


A new an­i­mated Star Wars series will pre­miere in the UK later this year, Dis­ney and Lu­cas­film have an­nounced.

Star Wars Re­sis­tance will be set prior to the events of the JJ Abrams­di­rected film The Force Awak­ens.

The pro­tag­o­nist of the anime-in­spired show will be 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.

The voices of ac­tors Os­car Isaac and Gwen­do­line Christie, who played Poe Dameron and Cap­tain Phasma in the re­cent films, will ap­pear in the series.

Star Wars Re­sis­tance will be shown on Dis­ney XD later this year.
