Star Wars Resistance Season 2

Star Wars Resistance season 2 premiered in the US yesterday. In an attempt to boost awareness and maybe ratings for the series, the season 2 opening episode “Into The Unknown” is available on the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel, it’s not even geoblocked, so anyone should be able to access it.

Star Wars Resistance Will End With Season 2!

A brand new trailer for the second season of Star Wars Resistance has been released today. Along with that comes the announcement that Resistance will also end after season 2. This is the official trailer description from the Star Wars YouTube channel:

The Emmy Award-nominated series Star Wars Resistance returns for its second and final season beginning Sunday, October 6 at 10:00 p.m. EDT/PDT on Disney Channel and in DisneyNOW, with subsequent airings on Disney XD. The concluding season takes place during the events of “The Last Jedi” leading up to “The Rise of Skywalker,” as Kaz and the team continue to fight against the threat of the First Order, culminating in an epic series finale.

In light of this it’s no surprise Hasbro no longer makes toys for the show. Also, ratings were very bad. Season 2 was probably greenlit / in production, long before season 1 even aired. In light of the ratings and lack of toy support it only makes sense for Disney to focus on something new. Of course, it may also be possible that Resistance was always supposed to be just a show with two seasons, but I find that unlikely, considering the costs developing the show and how animation usually works.

Watch the trailer by clicking the image below. It looks quite epic in places, with huge space battles. Kylo Ren makes a guest appearance even (not voiced by Adam Driver, it appears). As far as story arcs go: apparently the Colossus is in search of a new planet to call home, while the First Order can still track the Colossus. Kaz and friends don’t know how they can do that, but we know the answer already. Hyperspace tracking, of course.  Let’s hope the Colossus won’t have any problem with its fuel supply as well. Leave your constructive thoughts in the comments!

All the excitement for the new helmets and great Star Wars dioramas may have overshadowed this piece of news. Or in this case, it’s telling what Hasbro didn’t talk about at all at the SDCC panel. 5 POA 3.75” modern style movie figures were not mentioned with one single word. Hasbro merely said that 3.75 inch figures will get made for the Retro line and TVC, they didn’t mention Force Link one single time.
And then, during the Q&A, one person asked about more toys for Star Wars: Resistance. Hasbro’s short reply? Nothing is planned at all. So what does that mean? It looks as though 5 POA 3.75 inch figures, unless they are Kenner replicas, are dead? Also, Hasbro doesn’t seem to believe at all in the Resistance cartoon. If the toys and the show were a success, Hasbro would certainly be happy to offer more. Instead they offer nothing. We know season 2 of Resistance is coming, but it was probably greenlit long before season 1 even aired (it’s how animation works). So what does it mean for the show when it has zero toys? And what does it mean for 3.75 inch collectors if the 5 POA line is cancelled in favor of stylized 5 inch Galaxy of Adventures figures? It seems 3.75 inch collectors will only have TVC now. And Retro figures. What is going on here? Or will Hasbro reveal a 5 POA 3.75 line for The Rise of Skywalker after all, but only on Triple Force Friday? There are zero rumors for any 5 POA figures though. So maybe the line is dead. Many of you asked for it. But the question is, are you happy now that 5 POA might be dead? TVC didn’t benefit at all from that, as is evident.

UPDATE: Hasbro officially confirmed in a post panel interview that the basic 5 POA 3.75 inch action figure line is no more. Only the Retro collection and TVC will have 3.75 inch figures from now on.

The end.

Star Wars: Resistance Nominated For An Emmy

Star Wars: Resistance has been nominated for an Emmy in the “Outstanding Children’s Program” Category. Also nominated in this category are “A Series of Unfortunate Events”, Carmen Sandiego (both Netflix shows), the HBO documentary “Song of Parkland” and HBO show “When You Wish Upon A Pickle: A Sesame Street Special” (Pickle Rick anyone?).
Dave Filoni and team did win an Emmy (three, actually) for Star Wars: The Clone Wars several years ago, Rebels was nominated several times but didn’t win, so Resistance is the third Star Wars animated show to be nominated for an Emmy.
Also, Star Wars: Resistance will see a home media release on August 20th. Will you buy the DVD for your kids (or yourself)?

Poster For Star Wars Resistance Season 2 Revealed

The Star Wars Resistance panel was also held today at Star Wars Celebration Chicago. And while the livestream suddenly cut away from the panel, just as the the first episode of season 2 was about to be screened, we do have at least the poster to show you.

Apparently Tam will be a First Order cadet named DT-533 in season 2, which is supposed to pick up right after season 1 ended, with the Colossus in space and Tam with the First Order. Not much else is known at the moment, but more news will certainly leak. Will you follow season 2 of Resistance which will air later in 2019? I think season 1 was more or less entertaining, but had too many filler episodes in which nothing of consequence happened. Maybe things will pick up speed in season 2, now that the First Order is invading the galaxy and with the Colossus in space.

It’s late, but we didn’t want to say goodnight without providing you a sneak peek at the stunning Jarek Yeager/Bucket (R3-B7) Two-Packs set from the Star Wars [Resistance] line. It’s one of the most beautiful things Hasbro’s produced in quite some time. We’re quite taken with this line, and the products continually get better and better. Bucket has more articulation than expected, and its design is gorgeous. Jarek Yeager is one of the nicest animated sculpts we’ve ever seen! This is a must-have set in our opinion, so check it out early right now!

Star Wars Resistance is officially picked up for a second season. Along with the announcement, we get a look at the second half of season 1 with some interesting appearances. We get to see several characters witnessing a holo of the speech given by General Hux, which would lead us to believe that Star Wars Resistance will merge with the events of The Force Awakens. It will be interesting to see how they handle this given BB-8’s presence in both Star Wars Resistance and The Force Awakens. Click through for the full press release and trailer.

These are two-packs, a pilot with a droid and they look very cool. Below is Jarek Yeager & Bucket (R3-B7) and Poe Dameron & BB-8.
