Star Wars Resistance Trailer Features Major Force Awakens Moment

Star Wars Resistance

Star Wars Resistance catches up to the events of 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the midseason trailer for the Disney Channel animated series.

The new footage depicts the arrival of the First Order on the Colossus, the refueling station that serves as the show's primary setting. As protagonist Kaz Xiono continues to spy on the First Order for the Resistance, the series recreates the pivotal moment from The Force Awakens when General Hux officially declares war on the New Republic before using Starkiller Base to destroy the Hosnian System.
