General Leia Will Appear In Disney's New Animated Series STAR WARS: RESISTANCE

Fan-favorite character General Leia Organa will reportedly appear in Disney's animated series Star Wars: Resistance. Actress Rachel Butera will voice the character, taking over for the late Carrie Fisher.

News
Disney's new animated show Star Wars: Resistance will feature a mix of both new and familiar faces, including Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), and BB-8. Following the debut of the show's first trailer, we now have confirmation from EW's Anthony Breznican that General Leia Organa will also make an appearance.

On Twitter, actress Rachel Butera (Tammy's Tiny Tea Time) revealed that she has the "honor" of providing the voice for General Leia, the iconic character originally played by the late Carrie Fisher. 


Star Wars: Resistance is set after the events of Return of the Jedi and before The Force Awakens. Although General Leia wasn't featured in the first trailer for Star Wars: Resistance, you have to imagine she'll have a pretty prominent role in the series given the key role she has in the fight against The First Order. That doesn't necessarily mean she'll have a ton of screentime though, as she could just issue orders from a distance with maybe a brief appearance here and there.

Star Wars: Resistance follows the adventures of Kazudo Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance in order to infiltrate and spy on The First Order. Details for the first episode reveal that Poe Dameron and BB-8 will assign Kaz to the Colossus, a massive refueling platform on an outer rim ocean planet, where he meets a" cast of colorful new aliens, droids, and creatures."



Star Wars: Resistance premieres on Sunday, October 7 at 10:00 p.m. EDT on Disney Channel.
