On the official mission of a new spy of the resistance named Kazuda Xiono. This task is to investigate the growing threat in the galaxy. He was appointed by Bo Damiron to do some of the tasks and actions through which he can reach the threat, the impact of the threat on the galaxy.
Without needing to connect to the Star Wars saga in an immensely profound or meaningful way, Resistance can just focus on telling a fun, entertaining story of hotshot pilots and the starships they fly.
It's an entertaining enough hour for kids -- my 8-year-old was spellbound -- but whether it attracts adult viewers as Rebels and Clone Wars did probably depends on how the show's serialized story develops.
Star Wars Resistance paints with a much brighter, more colorful palette, but at least initially settles for more pallid characters and situations -- the kind that don't immediately suggest this is the animated show you're looking for.
