Lucasfilm dropped a Youtube video Wednesday afternoon, where the creator of Star Wars Resistance, Dave Filoni introduces the main characters of the series that make up Team Fireball.
The new animated series that takes place before the events of The Force Awakens, and will premiere October 7 on the Disney Channel with a one-hour episode. Oscar Isaac will voice Poe Dameron, and Gwendoline Christie lends her voice to Captain Phasma.
About the first episode, “The Recruit”:
Poe and BB-8 assign newly-appointed spy Kaz to the Colossus, a massive aircraft re-fueling platform on an outer rim water planet, home to colorful new aliens, droids, and creatures. While undercover, Kaz works as a mechanic and lives with Poe’s old friend Yeager — a veteran pilot who operates a starship repair shop run by his crew: Tam, Neeku and their old battered astromech droid, Bucket. Kaz soon finds himself in over his head with his newfound friend BB-8 as he’ll have to compete in dangerous sky races, keep his mission a secret from his newfound family, and avoid the danger of the First Order.
