Spoilers ahead for Star Wars Resistance…
Sometimes it just pays to be sick. Case in point:
Just a few minutes ago, just a few minutes after I trekked home with a nasty cold, Disney Channel PR posted…
BREAKING: #DisneyChannel has ordered a second season of the high-flying animated series #StarWarsResistance for a fall 2019 premiere. The mid-season one trailer featuring the first appearance by a major villain from #TheForceAwakens also debuted today. https://t.co/HnFvV2D2pn

The trailer gave me the chills – and they weren’t just from illness; as I had to re-watch to ensure I saw what I saw. Clearly, the series is taking a dramatic turn.
AGAIN, SPOILERS AHEAD…
Yep, that’s General Hux (Hux) in all of his glory, belting out familiar lines from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Now I know why Clayton Sandell was so excited yesterday:

I am so psyched about this dual announcement, as there’s so much to unpack from the mid-season trailer.
Tie-fighters, stormtroopers, battles… The second half of the premiere season looks to wrestle the show into more of a Star Wars Rebels style, as timelines converge and canon gets clarified and characters are put in jeopardy.
I am on board for all of it (this season, and next)!
