STAR WARS RESISTANCE: Meet The Colorful Crew Of Team Fireball And Get A First Look At General Leia

Lucasfilm has released a video highlighting the interesting crew that makes up Team Fireball in the upcoming animated series Star Wars Resistance. We also have our first look at General Leia in the show.

Earlier this month, fans were treated to a first look at Disney and Lucasfilm's new animated series, Star Wars Resistance. The new show, which is set between the events of  Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, follows the adventures of Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance for a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. As the trailer revealed, fans will meet a diverse cast of characters, including those who will be working alongside Kaz on Colossus, a massive refueling platform on an outer rim ocean planet.

These new characters will make up Team Fireball, a crew of mechanics and pilots aboard Colossus who must work together to "try and win races to survive and make money." In a newly released video featurette, courtesy of EW, show creator Dave Filoni and the voice cast of Star Wars Resistance offer details for each of their characters. Additionally, we have brand new images from the show, including the one below which features all five members of Team Fireball (from left to right: Bucket, Kazuda, Neeku, Tam, and Yeager).

As explained in the video, most of Team Fireball are unaware of Kaz's secret mission, except for Jarek Yeager, a former Rebellion pilot now living a quiet life as a mechanic who is called back into action by General Leia Organa and Poe Dameron. Speaking of Leia, we also have our first look at her in the show, appearing as a hologram and giving direction to Poe Dameron, who will be voiced by Oscar Isaac. As previously revealed, Leia will be voiced by Rachel Butera. Other fan-favorite characters including BB-8 and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) will also appear in the show. Check out the video feature and new images for  Star Wars Resistance below.

Star Wars Resistance is set to premiere on Sunday, October 7 at 10:00 p.m. EDT on Disney Channel and Disney Now.
