My secret fortress at the base of the volcano!

Has anyone brought up the fact that, if this series is a prequel to Episodes 7 & 8, then it is almost certain that every single one of these characters is dead by the end of Ep 8? Because the Resistance got murderfethed in that movie, and most of their pilots in particular were dead by the 20 minute mark.

Well, I thought that about Ahsoka....

And don’t forget, it was just The Resistance HQ. So far as we know, it’s entirely possible they had outposts elsewhere.

The Poe Dameron comics recently showed that a few of his black squadron buddies were away on a mission during the events of TLJ. Given the in universe timeline and the expected release date of episode 10, I wouldn't be surprised to see the later series of Resistance weave around the events of the sequel trilogy. We might even see some droid and ship cameos in ep10 in the same way Rebels got a few nods in Rogue one.

The Leia voice sounds spot on. Good job, whoever that is.

This is looking very cool.

Surprised this thread hasn't been updated as its now available.

Overall I am pretty pleased so far, the animation takes some getting used to and Neeku(?) is pretty irritating but so far so good. Nice FO TIE/in as well.

Looks like one I might have found interesting when I was around 10.

So a few assorted thoughts after watching the first four episodes.

The animation does take some getting used to as its a big change from both Clone wars and Rebels. And while I do prefer the styling of both those shows it doesnt make Resistence bad, just different.

The tone is fairly light and fun for now. But with his father in the senate there are dark days ahead for Kaz when the show catches up to TFO.

As long as they havent blown all there ship models in the first four episodes, FFG are gonna get a lot of milage out of this show for X-Wing.

Versteckt in den Schatten deines Geistes.

I've only seen the first few mins of the first episode (at work, can't watch the whole thing now).

I watched 3 X-Wings being unable to shake a single TIE fighter. That's... pretty lame. I hope it improves.

You need to finish the episode the Red Tie Fighter is an Ace and Poe says no one has ever even hit him before even Poe struggles to shake him but the usual all shots go astray when a lead character is involved kicks in!

The animation does take a bit of getting used to, the tone is quite light and Kaz is a bit annoying but other animated shows started similarly and got darker as they progressed and the younger leads matured a bit.

Any idea where I can watch this in the UK, without getting Sky?

If it's on Disney XD like Rebels was, you can get that on BT, and possibly on Virgin too.

For a kids show I thought it was fine, there's not really anything to keep an older viewer interested so far though. I think I will wait for the season to finish and just blast through the rest of the episodes and pick out all the good bits!

I hope they get through the obligatory *main character matures and rises up to the challenge* part quickly though. In the first episode Kaz seemed great, leading a squad of X-Wings, making a bit of self sacrifice and stepping away from his father but he rapidly devolved into a bumbling kid soon after which didn't really fit.

Like I said though, it is very much a kids show and I am sure it will grow with the audience like Rebels did.

Okay, then where were they when Leia called all the Resistance to come help and no one answered? Too busy washing their hair?

On Topic- I haven't seen the show yet.

The main thing that bugs me is Neeku, just too much comic relief.

Not quite. They were doing much of the same things that the "main" Resistance group was doing during TLJ. Fighting and running from the First Order forces storming into the New Republic.

And being a wing of X-Wings really isn't going to help against The First Order's main fleet. That'd be a fools death. Better to use the distraction to retreat, and see if you can't get things going again. Heck, maybe even start spreading the word about what The First Order are up to. You don't need to come running to aid in a fight.
