“Star Wars Resistance” is coming back for a new season, the Disney Channel confirmed the Season 2 renewal today with a new trailer for the upcoming episodes. The next season of adventures is scheduled to debut in fall 2019, but we do have some mid-season stories to get through first.
The newest Star Wars animated series follows Kazuda Xiono (“Kaz”), a young pilot recruited by the Resistance for a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. Season one continues on January 13th on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW.
As we mentioned earlier, Disney Channel also released a new trailer; the mid-season video for “Star Wars Resistance” features a first look at a major villain from “The Force Awakens,” and was released today on the Star Wars YouTube channel. Fans of the franchise can watch that trailer below.
