STAR WARS: RESISTANCE Discussion Thread!

Recommended Posts

' "The idea for Star Wars Resistance came out of my interest in World War II aircraft and fighter pilots” said Filoni. “My grandfather was a pilot and my uncle flew and restored planes, so that’s been a big influence on me." '

As a fan of Star Wars and also WWII aviation, I am super geeked out about this.

Ditto. So was George Lucas.

this sounds perfect! I always wanted a Rogue Squadron TV show, and this sounds like the closest we will get to it.

 

My favorite part about any sci-fi series has been the space fighters. it's why I love Star Wars, Battlestar, Wing Commander.

 

now we just need a new, better, Battletech TV show and my life will be complete

I've always wanted to see a Rogue Squadron series as well. Would love to see them Band of Brothers style starting at the end of the Battle of Edor. Sadly, I believe Disney is going to let Lucas Star Wars die and replace it completely with Resistance forward. Rogue One, Rebels and Solo give me hope though but I'll be surprised if they go back to the OT time frame much.

Disney is following Kylo's advice and are slowly letting the past die. I'm not very excited about this series yet.

I don't know about that.

Rebels proved how much the prequels and OT can be integrated beautifully. 

Perhaps this can do the same with the Sequel Trilogy and the Original Trilogy?

Someone noted that it looks like an Old-Republic Striker-class fighter, restored and customized... with different engines, etc.

That's because every era tries to imitate the OT. 

 

With vaguely Vader like villains, and TIE fighter like ships. 

 

There could have been a number of amazing designs for Old Republic troopers, but they went with the clone trooper-esque troops to hammer the point home. Same with the ship. It is vaguely X-Wing like.

We're gonna see many more older ships that are restored & customized from Dave Filoni's new show.

I hope we get the N-1 from FFG out this, in the least.
 

I wanna know wtf the fighter is in the title image. Most likely a tricked-out & restored Striker-class or a custom X-wing.

Yeah, it sounds like it is going to be a dog fight heavy show, which sounds fun. So, plenty of fodder for the game. Also, not CG, which is surprising. 2D, but specifically called out as anime style. 

Dollars to donuts it was inspired by this. 

 

DUDE!  this is awesome!!  Thanks for sharing it.

I’m hoping we’ll get some more ST era Scum ships from the show too.

There is a comment in the disney article about being inspired by high speed racing. I don't think the ship seen in the image is a T-## anything. I think it is more likely a racing only fighter in the same manner as old P-51s and F-4 Corsairs getting hacked up for RedBull air racing. Still not a bad way to get some new hotshot pilot dragged into the resistance.

I'm worried that just started production and they are releasing it this fall. It sounds like an awfuly short time, considering that, with how the TV scheduling works it's more likely to mean early September than late November. And DisneyXD is never a good sign.

I'm not too worried.   This probably started production the moment rebels ended, probably considerably before.   

As Rebels winded down, people were probably assigned work for the new show.   Pre-production probably started about the same time as rebels last season started.
