Star Wars Resistance Trailer

Star Wars Resistance began six months before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and we knew it would eventually cross over with that movie. But this show is wasting no time, because as you can see in the trailer, Kaz and his pals witness a hologram of General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson) giving his rage-filled speech on Starkiller Base.

"You've just got to go for it," Gleeson said of that speech in a previous interview. "It's Star Wars! You want to go home thinking you gave it a shot. Because we shot different versions that were smaller, always, but that's what J.J. [Abrams] wanted so I'm happy they went the way they did. It's intense, but you're about to wipe out planets and he's proud of it! This is a different level of coldness here that your dealing with, so I thought there's been people like that you know so lets give it a shot."

Plus, fans can raise a glass of blue milk in celebration because Star Wars Resistance season 2 is on the way. The second season will premiere in fall 2019, although the number of episodes in the season hasn't officially been revealed yet. (Season one has a fourteen episode order.)
