The Latest Star Wars Animated Series,
Star Wars Resistance, Produced at Polygon Pictures!
Polygon Pictures (“PPI” President and CEO: Shuzo Shiota Head Office: Tokyo, Japan) is proud to announce that our studio will be producing animation for Star Wars Resistance, the newest Star Wars animated series.
Polygon Pictures previously produced animation for the 3D CG series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Emmy award-winner for two consecutive years, and we are pleased to once more be involved in a Star Wars animated series.
Star Wars Resistance is an animated series set amongst the events leading up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. While many details are yet to be announced, it will follow Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance and tasked with a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order, along with appearances by established characters including Poe Dameron and Captain Phasma.
Director Dave Filoni (Star Wars Rebels, Executive Producer) gave the following comment:
"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."
Star Wars Resistance will premiere this fall on Disney Channel in the U.S. and, thereafter, on Disney XD and around the world.(Regarding any announcements on Japan broadcast, we would obviously like to be the first to announce).We hope you are looking forward to this newest 3D CG animated Star Wars series!
