STAR WARS: RESISTANCE Website Reveals The Series' Place In The Franchise Timeline

We've known Star Wars: Resistance will be set between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, but now we have a more specific idea for where in the franchise timeline it is set.

News
Disney and Lucasfilm's upcoming animated series Star Wars: Resistance will serve as a nice gap-filler between  Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. But, given that the time between those two films spans 30 years, we didn't know exactly where the Resistance fits into the franchise timeline. However, thanks to some eagle-eyed fans who did a little snooping around the official Star Wars: Resistance website, we now have a better idea.

According to a brief meta description of the series in the code of the website, Resistance is set about six months prior to the beginning of The Force Awakens. The description, which appears to have been tweaked to remove the timeline, initially read:

"Set about six months before The Force Awakens, Star Wars Resistance tells the story of Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance and tasked with a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order."


Although the description has since been changed, fans on Twitter and Reddit managed to screencap for evidence.


It's unclear why Disney would remove the timeframe, perhaps to allow some flexibility for the series, which follows the adventures of a young pilot, Kazudo Xiono, who is recruited by the Resistance for a secret mission to spy on the First Order. Resistance will feature both new and familiar faces including Poe Dameron, BB-8, Captain Phasma and even General Leia, who we recently learned will be voiced by Rachel Butera.

Star Wars: Resistance will premiere on Sunday, October 7 at 10:00 p.m. EDT on Disney Channel. A trailer for the highly anticipated series debuted last week. Additional 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."
