    Star Wars Resistance is a promising start to a new, high-flying adventure shepherded by the talented Filoni and his team, and it’s one that I hope long-standing fans and a new generation of Resistance fighters alike will come to love.

    In the past, Star Wars has only ever given us brief glimpses of what it’s like to pass through any given hive of scum and villainy (even one that’s been sanitized for kids’ TV). Resistance seems ready to give the little guy his shot, and for a franchise that’s always loved an underdog, it’s an idea that arrives with a lot of force.

    Honestly not understanding a lot of the hate. I think the largest problem this series faces is that it doesn't have stakes. But thats about it.

    I didn't expect a lot from this series, but I enjoyed this pilot a lot more than I did with the Rebel series premier. I don't have experienceI didn't expect a lot from this series, but I enjoyed this pilot a lot more than I did with the Rebel series premier. I don't have experience with the animation style, but I love the way this show looks. The color palette really pops. By the time Kaz/Poe arrive at the Colossus I was totally hooked on the look and feel of this series and it feels very much like Star Wars to me.

    I'm amazed at how well the new characters are introduced. It's all very organic and it's funny. I love the mix of creatures/humans so far. Oh, and the ships look amazing!

    I don't expect Poe to be a huge part of this series, but he's used well to introduce us to Kaz. I really loved how Neeku Vozo was introduced and how he spread the rumor that Kaz was the best pilot in the galaxy. I was curious how BB-8 would be used, but he seems to be a major part of the series despite being Poe's droid. This takes place pretty close to The Force Awakens so I expect this show to pass The Last Jedi in future seasons.

    Overall this show is a lot of fun. It's full of great characters who I'm sure are going to be further developed. It also has some strong minor characters. Fix, Orka and the bartender whose name escapes me probably won't be huge characters, but they have some good moments. This is a show that should appeal to children and fans alike. Plus, it should serve to give us some much needed backstory on the First Order, the Resistance, and the New Republic.

    Contains very mild spoilers.

    Good things: I like the animation. Dogfigths look great. If they end up making some huge space battles it could look amazing, Characters look ok, but not great but it didn't bother me too much.

    Mediocre things: Music. It is only my opinion, but the music wasn't "starwarsy" enough for me. It is forgettable and lacks epicness of star wars.

    Bad things:
    Story. It is quite obvious that this is a series for young kids. It is not Avatar: The Last Airbender. it is not Dragon Prince.
    Characters. They are boring and one dimensional. Main problem is the main character: Kaz is very goofy and really annoying as main character. (and I didn't think Ezra was annoying like most people). He is constantly narrating what he is doing. Oh and he is apparently indestructible. He gets blown up by blaster fire from the platform into the air (should be dead), lands on the front window of passing pirate ship (very dead). Gets thrown from the pirate ship back on the platform (super dead)...... and he lands in the same spot with no injury... :/ The force was with him?

    Why would the Resistance even send some random pilot on some random spying mission? Shouldn't they send someone who knows how to do spy stuff and want to do the job? Also isn't he part of New Republic Military? Its not even mentioned that he is a deserter.

    Nitpicking:
    First scene really bugs me. There are three Republic Fighters engaging one First Order TIE. and they fly in the straight line like three Idiots away from the TIE, screaming all the time that they are doomed, and that enemy pilot is sooo good... It is quite obvious that they should scatter, TIE follows one X-Wing, rest of them attack him easily from behind. They probably wanted to establish that Major Vonreg is a threat, and he is capable of attacking superior enemy force alone. All I got is that republic pilots are incompetent, and they know nothing about starfighter combat.

    This bugs me because main character is starfighter pilot. Starfighter pilot = many space battles. And this space battle SUCKED.(still looks good) It is puzzling because they were capable of making those kind of engagements properly in rebels (skilled baddie pilot wiping floor with the good guys) like Vader vs, Phoenix fleet, Protectors vs. Hera squadron,

    That's all. There are some good things but it is mostly bad.

    November: Still not good. It is good that First Order Stormtroopers are still graduates of Stormtrooper School of Not Hitting Things. :] Also I suspect that higher ranking FO officers are Power Rangers. Red Power Ranger pilot, Gold Power Ranger infantry officer, And their leader: Chrome Power Ranger, Maybe gold armour is a uniform for middle ranking officers, but I have a bad feeling (Star Wars!), that every minor villain of the week will have different armour color.

For example Poe recruits Kaz, basically at random and within the first five minutes of meeting him. Kaz is not the most brilliant character either doing the most dumb things that will have you asking if he is really that stupid. Another question is to whom this is aimed at. Yeah, supposedly kids, but #1 it is canon so naturally all star wars fans would like to consume it, and #2 it is too late at night for kids. So, what gives? Anyway, final verdict, SWR is too stupid, unfunny and boring. It might improve, but first impressions are important. Expand

They can't create a compleling story for any new characters. In TFA and TLJ, they started great with Rey and Finn, then they screwed up their stories...and made them dull. Disney is doing the same thing with Resistance....but they can't even get a good character with a good story started. Also silly dialog....i know its for children...but give the characters something interesting to say. Its like they are just filling time. Expand

    What can i say? Poor writing, predictable story, very bad animation quality. Even a 3 year old will find the show boring and tedious.

    Bad direction for Disney and most importantly - for Star Wars.
