Star Wars: Resistance was the first Star Wars series to come across the airwaves that just really held no interest for us. Yes, it was aimed at kids, but Clone Wars and Rebels were as well. They just happened to be written smartly enough to earn respect from grown fans as well. With that said, we can’t really speak to the total quality of the first season. We do know that the show is coming back, but its return will mark the end of the show’s run.
Today we got our first look at the new season with a trailer drop and it is starting to look interesting. Several faces from the new trilogy films are starting to pop up, including Kylo Ren and those dudes who were chasing after Han and Chewie. The story looks like it has some real stakes, and that might be enough for us to give it a chance. It doesn’t mean that we’ll go back and watch season one, but if toy sales are any indication neither is anyone else. Seriously, figures from the show are on clearance at Walmart for $4. In fact, maybe you should grab them. If they redeem the series with an epic final season, you might be looking at some of the rarer Star Wars collectibles ten years down the road.
The story picks up after a harrowing escape from the First Order, as the Colossus and all its residents find themselves lost in space, pursued by Agent Tierny and Commander Pyre. Kaz and team also face a myriad of new dangers along the way including bounty hunters, a suspicious Hutt, General Hux and Supreme Leader Kylo Ren. Meanwhile, Tam grapples with her future and where her true allegiance lies, with her friends or the First Order. The thrilling final season will showcase how the unlikeliest of heroes can help spark hope across the galaxy.
Joining the voice cast in guest starring roles for season two are Joe Manganiello (“Magic Mike”) as Ax Tagrin, Daveed Diggs (“Hamilton”) as Norath Kev, Matthew Wood (“The Clone Wars”) as Kylo Ren and Lucy Lawless (“Xena: Warrior Princess”) as the Aeosian Queen. “Star Wars Resistance” stars Christopher Sean (“Days of Our Lives”) as Kazuda Xiono; Suzie McGrath (“East Enders”) as Tam Ryvora; Scott Lawrence (“Legion”) as Jarek Yeager; Myrna Velasco (“Elena of Avalor”) as Torra Doza; Josh Brener (“Silicon Valley”) as Neeku Vozo; Donald Faison (“Scrubs”) as Hype Fazon; Elijah Wood (“The Lord of The Rings”) as Rucklin; Jim Rash (“Community”) and Bobby Moynihan (“DuckTales”) as Flix and Orka, respectively; Liam McIntyre (“Spartacus”) as Commander Pyre; Jason Hightower (“Victor & Valentino”) as Captain Doza; and Sumalee Montano (“Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny”) as Agent Tierny.
