What you need to know about Star Wars Resistance episode 21, including latest news, release date, trailers, cast, and much more!

Star Wars Resistance is the new animated series set in the galaxy far, far away. The show follows 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. Resistance features BB-8 alongside ace pilots, colorful new characters, and appearances by Poe Dameron and Captain Phasma, voiced by actors Oscar Isaac and Gwendoline Christie, respectively.

Dave Filoni, exec producer and director of both The Clone Wars and Rebels, created Resistance. In true Filoni fashion, the series has its own unique art style. Resistance is “anime-inspired.”

“The idea for Star Wars Resistance came out of my interest in World War II aircraft and fighter pilots,” Filoni said in a press release. “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.”
