Fans attending the Star Wars: Resistance panel at Star Wars Celebration were the first to get a sneak peak at the first episode of the second season.
Executive producers Justin Ridge, Athena Portillo, and Brandon Auman were joined by cast members Christopher Sean, Suzie McGrath, Scott Lawrence, Myrna Velasco, Donald Faison, and Bobby Moynihan. The early portion of the panel was devoted to the roots of the series, the look, and the timeline.
The series follows young New Republic pilot Kazuda Xiono who is recruited by Resistance Commander Poe Dameron for a secret mission on Colossus — an aircraft refueling station on the ocean planet of Castilon. A misunderstanding causes Kaz to participate in a dangerous race to prove himself. Kaz struggles to maintain his cover as a mechanic and spy as he tries to adjust to this new normal. Kaz’s work as a spy takes him across the known galaxy on adventures with Poe Dameron and their droids, BB-8 and CB-23, as they seek to bring down the First Order.
