Polygon Pictures has announced that they will be producing the upcoming Star Wars Resistance animated series. For those who are unaware, the series is next animated project based on the Star Wars brand.
As reported earlier this April, the series will feature events leading into Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
Dave Filoni, director of Star Wars Resistance and the previous two animated series based on the Star Wars brand had this to say about the coming project.
“The idea for Star Wars Resistance came out of my interest in World War II aircraft and fighter pilots. My grandfather was a pilot and my uncle flew and restored planes, so that’s been a big influence on me. There’s a long history of high-speed racing in Star Wars, and I think we’ve captured that sense of excitement in an anime-inspired style, which is something the entire team has been wanting to do for a long time.”
The series is set to premiere on the Disney Channel this Fall and on Disney XD worldwide.
