Star Wars fans, it’s time to rejoice, as Disney has just unveiled the premiere date for the brand new animated series, Star Wars Resistance, in the show’s first trailer. Coming from Star Wars Rebels show runner and creator, Dave Filoni, Star Wars Resistance will debut with a one-hour premiere on Disney Channel, DisneyNOW, and Disney Channel VOD on Sunday, October 7 at 10 p.m. ET.

Star Wars Resistance will tell the story of Kazuda Xiono, aka Kaz, who is a young pilot brought into the Resistance to spy on an emerging threat in the galaxy: the First Order. If it wasn’t evident by the show’s title and synopsis, Resistance will take place before The Force Awakens. Much to fans’ delight, the show will feature a handful of familiar characters, such as Poe Dameron (voiced by Oscar Isaac), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), BB-8, and General Leia Organa, who will be portrayed by Rachel Butera.
