After Star Wars Rebels ended, I wasn’t ready to jump into a whole new series with a cast of new faces. It felt like people were ready to forget about Rebels when Star Wars Resistance was announced. It took a few months to warm up to the idea, but I’m happy to say Resistance is the kind of show I need to help me connect with the sequel movies.
The show is colorful, refreshing, and amusing. I adore all of the characters, especially Kazuda Xiono. In some ways, he reminds me of Ezra. They both have a good heart, they’re naturally funny (and clumsy), and they’d do anything to protect their home.
To put it simply, the premiere was a lot of fun. I went in with no checklist of expectations or any preconceived notions. Most people are viewing this show and analyzing it through the lens of an adult. I just embraced the story that was presented to me and had fun with it. If you can’t have fun with Star Wars, what’s the point of it all?

- Fish Gorgs are friends, not food.
- I love how supportive Torra is during her race with Kaz. She’s even there for him at the end when he wakes up from his accident. I look forward to seeing how their sibling-like relationship will develop.
- I hope we get to see Kazuda’s father and family down the line, especially if this show is leading up to the destruction of the New Republic.
