A new featurette video of the upcoming animation TV series “Star Wars Resistance” has been released online. The video shows the heroes, who form a team that is known as Team Fireball. The fans learn about each member of the team, and what they are doing in a place called Colossus.

The plot of the animation TV series follows the life of pilot Kazuda Xiono (Voice by Christopher Sean). He will be travelling to a place called Colossus, where pilots from across the galaxy come to take part in some dangerous racing.

Kaz is a great pilot, but he has another more important job that is given to him by Resistance pilot Poe Dameron (Voice by Oscar Isaac). His mission is to spy on th First Order, a secretive organisation that is still rising to become a threat to the galaxy eventually. Kaz is a “fish out of water” when it comes to spying, and he will be very clumsy at it.

Another important character who is a veteran, more experienced member of the team is Yeager (Voice by Scott Lawrence). Yeager was a pilot for the Rebellion, but he now spends his time away from all the politics of the galaxy to focus on winning races, making a living as a mechanic.

Tam (Voice by Suzie McGrath) is a young character who is also a mechanic. She used to be a racer, but she lost her ship.

One of the more fun characters in the team is Neeku (voice by Josh Brener). The character is super positive in all sorts of situation, which should add a lot of levity to the TV series.

Another more familiar character in the TV series is BB-8, which may not be a part of Team Fireball. BB-8 is an important part of the main movie saga, and it will be interesting to see which other characters from the films will make it to the show.
