Disney Orders ‘Star Wars Resistance’ Animated Series

Hoping they have not yet reached the saturation point for “Star Wars” content, Disney has ordered a new animated series set in a galaxy far, far away called “Star Wars Resistance.”

Debuting sometime this fall on Disney Channel before moving to Disney XD, “Resistance” will take place before the events of 2015’s “The Force Awakens” and center on a young pilot, Kazuda Xiono, who is recruited by the Resistance and tasked with a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order.

The announcement comes after Disney’s last animated “Star Wars” series, “Star Wars Rebels,” ended its four-season run in March.

Along with a voice cast that includes Donald Faison, Bobby Moynihan and Jim Rash, Oscar Isaac and Gwendoline Christie will voice their “Force Awakens” counterparts Poe Dameron and Captain Phasma, respectively. Dameron’s trusty droid sidekick BB-8 will also appear.

“Star Wars Resistance” was created by LucasFilm Animation’s Dave Filoni, who served as an executive producer on “Rebels.”

“The idea for ‘Star Wars Resistance’ came out of my interest in World War II aircraft and fighter pilots,” said Filoni. “My grandfather was a pilot and my uncle flew and restored planes, so that’s been a big influence on me. There’s a long history of high-speed racing in Star Wars, and I think we’ve captured that sense of excitement in an anime-inspired style, which is something the entire team has been wanting to do for a long time.”

Watch Carrie Fisher Slap Oscar Isaac Over and Over Again in ‘Last Jedi’ Blooper Reel (Video)

Last year, Oscar Isaac said Carrie Fisher slapped him 27 times during a “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” scene, and now we have the video to prove it.

A blooper reel from the film was released on Wednesday, which shows the scene in which Fisher’s Princess Leia demotes Isaac’s Poe. The reel is cut to show Leia slapping Poe silly — and it will definitely make you laugh.

Last May, Isaac appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” to talk about filming with the actress before she died in 2016.

“A large amount of the stuff I got to do was with Carrie, which was amazing,” Isaac said. “I remember the first day of shooting was a scene with Carrie … I remember it was a scene where I come up and talk with her, and she is very upset with me and slaps me.

“And Rian Johnson, the director, kept doing it over and over. I think it ended up being 27 takes of Carrie just leaning in [mimics hard slapping]. Every time, she’d hit a different part of my face.”

Fisher died on Dec. 27, 2016 after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles. The actress played Princess Leia in the “Star Wars” franchise, starting in 1977. She reprised the role in “The Last Jedi,” her last film in the franchise.

“She was by far one of the quickest-witted, funniest, down to earth real human beings I had the opportunity of working with,” Isaac added. “She does amazing work — it was definitely a heart breaker.”
