The Disney Channel and DisneyNOW app will launch the next animated series from A Galaxy Far, Far Away on Oct. 7 when it airs the one-hour premiere episode of Star Wars Resistance. Subsequent airings will appear on Disney XD.

The first plot and cast details and a first-look trailer for the series, a prequel to Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens, were unleashed Friday. We’ve known Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) would reprise their roles, but now we also know that General Leia Organa will appear in the series, voiced by Rachel Butera.

The high-flying adventure series follows Kazuda Xiono (“Kaz”), a young pilot recruited by the Resistance for a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. Following its U.S. debut, “Star Wars Resistance” will rollout globally on Disney Channels Worldwide.

In the one-hour premiere titled “The Recruit,” Poe and BB-8 assign newly-appointed spy Kaz to the Colossus, a massive aircraft re-fueling platform on an outer rim water planet, home to colorful new aliens, droids and creatures. While undercover, Kaz works as a mechanic and lives with Poe’s old friend Yeager — a veteran pilot who operates a starship repair shop run by his crew: Tam, Neeku and their old battered astromech droid, Bucket. Kaz soon finds himself in over his head with his newfound friend BB-8 as he’ll have to compete in dangerous sky races, keep his mission a secret from his newfound family, and avoid the danger of the First Order.

The voice cast includes: Christopher Sean (“Days of Our Lives”) as Kazuda Xiono; Suzie McGrath (“East Enders”) as Tam Ryvora; Scott Lawrence (“Legion”) as Jarek Yeager; Myrna Velasco (“Elena of Avalor”) as Torra Doza; Josh Brener (“Silicon Valley”) as Neeku Vozo; Donald Faison (“Scrubs”) as Hype Fazon; Jim Rash (“Community”) and Bobby Moynihan (“DuckTales”) as Flix and Orka, respectively; Oscar Isaac (“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”) as Poe Dameron, Gwendoline Christie (“Game of Thrones”) as Captain Phasma and Rachel Butera (“Tammy’s Tiny Tea Time”) as General Leia Organa.

Renowned Lucasfilm Animation veteran Dave Filoni (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” “Star Wars Rebels”) created the series; Athena Portillo (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” “Star Wars Rebels”), Justin Ridge (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” “Star Wars Rebels”) and Brandon Auman (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) serve as executive producers; and Amy Beth Christenson (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” “Star Wars Rebels”) is art director.
