Star Wars Resistance will take a little getting used to since it's very, very quirky
Star Wars Resistance, taking place six months before the events of The Force Awakens, debuts Sunday on Disney Channel before moving to Disney XD. "The first two episodes of the series, 'The Recruit Part 1' and 'Part 2,' do a fantastic job establishing a vast world of possibilities," says Germain Lussier. "They also establish a very unique tone for the show, one some fans are sure to be slightly put off by. Resistance has a look, humor, and energy that’s wholly unique to Star Wars. It’s brighter and faster than what we’ve seen from the franchise in the past, and very, very quirky."
