New Star Wars Resistance Video Introduces Team Aces

Poe Dameron isn't the only cool pilot in the Resistance. A new video for Star Wars Resistance introduces Team Aces and each member appears to have a fascinating backstory.

The Aces are reportedly the best pilots in the galaxy. However, they also appear to know it and spend plenty of time just racing each other because they're bored. Lucky for them, they're going to be tasked with helping Kazuda "Kaz" Xiono (Christopher Sean) in fulfilling his mission. In addition to that, each pilot has a distinct personality that could easily endear them to the audience.

Team Aces includes Torra Doza (Myrna Velasco), Hype Fazon (Donald Faison), Griff Halloran (Stephen Stanton), Freya Fenris (Mary Elizabeth McGlynn), and Bo Keevil.


Torra is the daughter of Captain Doza and a future friend of Kaz. Series creator Dave Filoni revealed that he actually based Hype on Faison, who he claims is a huge Star Wars fan. Griff is a former Imperial TIE fighter who still wears his Imperial helmet while Freya is the one pilot who seems to be serious about her job. Interestingly, Bo's voice actor is not featured in the video and the character is described as a mysterious character.

These are certainly interesting characters who all have a lot of potentials. However, I can't help but wonder why none of them made an appearance in The Force Awakens or The Last Jedi. Hopefully, they will all show up in Star Wars: Episode IX after their debut in Resistance.

Star Wars Resistance will premiere on the Disney Channel on October 7.
