Meet Team Fireball From Star Wars: Resistance

We’re just a couple of months away from the October 7th release of Star Wars: Resistance! For those of you that don’t know, the basic story of this new animated show is that Poe Dameron sends the character Kaz to report on the goings on at a giant station called the Colossus. In order to do this he joins a racing team. I know what you’re thinking… that can’t be it! Well as far as we know, it is. I’m sure that the First Order will be using the station for this or that and hijinks will ensue. The show’s creator and executive producer made it very clear that this show is aimed at a younger audience. Anyways we’ve seen the trailer, but now we’ve got a breakdown of Team Fireball to go with it.

First up is Kaz, voiced by Christopher Sean, who is the hero of the show. He is a young Resistance fighter who is sent by Poe to the Colossus station to spy on the First Order and to report if there are any good guys there. He is described as having a lot of heart and clumsy but great at flying.

Next we have Scott Lawrence’s Yeager. Yeager is a former rebel pilot and the owns the team and ship. He wants to get out of the galactic conflict, but keeps being dragged back in. It appears he’ll be the mentor for the group, but he wants nothing to do with Kaz’s spy job.

Third up is Tam. She is the mechanic for the team and is voiced by Suzie McGrath. She used to be a pilot but has lost her ship and has been grounded ever since. McGrath describes her character as having attitude and a no nonsense approach.

Rounding out the main good guys is Neeku. He is an alien and is definitely aimed at young kids. Josh Brener does the voice for this oddball character. He is described as having a genius level of intelligence but also very naive. Brener also states that he is very positive and upbeat no matter what. There is a very funny line in the video from Neeku about a pet he had…. for lunch.

BB-8 is also in this show and looks to have a bigger part to play than Poe. This makes sense because BB-8 is very popular with young kids. You can also catch a glimpse of General Leia Organa in hologram form in this video. I wonder if there’ll be any voice for her or if it’s just an image.

I think this may be a decent show to watch with my own young son. He is a very big fan of Star Wars and loves BB-8. I like the animation style too. It’s very crisp and the colors are vibrant. There’s also the fact this cartoon will likely have less impact on the canon than Rebels  or Clone Wars did. This will help keep my blood pressure low. I am hoping for some good comedy and some fun action sequences, but I wish it was something else other than racing. The Phantom Menace ruined any thing racing related in Star Wars for me.
