    Interesting that this will air on Disney Channel. Cool that another Star Wars program will be airing in the Fall, I like the synopsis of it right now.

    Press details courtesy of StarWars.com:

    Star Wars Resistance, Anime-Inspired Series, Set for Fall Debut

    All-new animated series will focus on the era before Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

    This fall, welcome to the Resistance!


    StarWars.com is thrilled to announce that production has begun on Star Wars Resistance, an exciting new animated adventure series about 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. It will premiere this fall on Disney Channel in the U.S. and thereafter, on Disney XD and around the world.


    Featuring the high-flying adventure that audiences of all ages have come to expect from Star Wars, Star Wars Resistance — set in the time prior to Star Wars: The Force Awakens — will feature the beloved droid BB-8 alongside ace pilots, colorful new characters and appearances by fan favorites including Poe Dameron and Captain Phasma, voiced by actors Oscar Isaac and Gwendoline Christie, respectively.

    The series was created by renowned Lucasfilm Animation veteran Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels); executive-produced by Athena Portillo (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), Justin Ridge (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) and Brandon Auman (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles); and art-directed by Amy Beth Christenson (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels).


    “The idea for Star Wars Resistance came out of my interest in World War II aircraft and fighter pilots” said Filoni. “My grandfather was a pilot and my uncle flew and restored planes, so that’s been a big influence on me. 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.”


    Marc Buhaj, senior vice president, Programming and general manager, Disney XD, said, “Our colleagues at Lucasfilm have created a compelling narrative for an untold moment in the Star Wars galaxy, and we are excited to partner with them again on this new original series. Star Wars Resistance will bring viewers across generations an engaging story with heart, humor and both new and familiar characters.”


    In addition to Isaac and Christie, the voice cast includes actors Christopher Sean (Days of Our Lives), Suzie McGrath (East Enders), Scott Lawrence (Legion), Myrna Velasco (Elena of Avalor), Josh Brener (Silicon Valley), Donald Faison (Scrubs), Bobby Moynihan (DuckTales), Jim Rash (Community), and Rachel Butera (Tammy’s Tiny Tea Time).

    Wow, another one?
    Anyhoo, I'm surprised this is coming to the Disney Channel as well. It still leaves many wondering: what's going to happen to Disney XD in the future?

    Based on the press release, I think this going to be similar to how Star Wars Rebels was handle; debut on Disney Channel, follow by the series moving over to Disney XD.

    I kinda figured that a sequel trilogy-era animated series would be the next Star Wars animated series, but since I haven't been that crazy for the new movies, I'm not that wild for this either.

    I wonder if they'll follow up the plot line set up in the Rebels finale of Sabine and Ahsoka the White searching for Ezra?

    Glad to hear there's a new Star Wars cartoon coming. The creative team behind the last two really know their stuff, really know the lore, so I'm excited to see what they are going to come up. I'm really interested to see what the character designs are going to look like.
