We've known that Star Wars: Resistance
, Disney's upcoming animated series, takes place after the events of Return of the Jedi
and before The Force Awakens
. Thanks to some eagle-eyed fans, however, we now have a more specific period for where in the Star Wars
timeline the new show is set.
While digging through the official Star Wars
website, a fan discovered that Resistance
is set about six months prior to where The Force Awakens
kicks off. The small detail was tucked away in the meta description for the show, which reads:
"Set about six months before The Force Awakens, Star Wars Resistance tells the story of 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."
It appears that Disney has since removed the date from the site's meta description, but not before fans captured screenshots for proof.
Disney and Lucasfilm debuted the first look trailer for Star Wars: Resistance this week
. It offered us a glimpse at the upcoming adventure of Kazudo Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance for a secret mission to spy on The First Order. The series will feature new and familiar faces, including Poe Dameron, BB-8, Captain Phasma and - as we learned most recently - General Leia
Star Wars: Resistance
will premiere on Sunday, October 7 at 10:00 p.m. EDT on Disney Channel.
