‘Star Wars Resistance’ Press Release: New Character Names Revealed

In addition to our first look at the series and premiere date (Sunday, October 7 at 10:00pm ET on The Disney Channel here in the US) via today’s official trailer, we also learn about some of the main characters that will be appearing in the new Star Wars Resistance animated series. The official Lucasfilm press release sent out today provides us with a breakdown of the new character names and their associated voice actors. We knew the names of the actors who would be lending their voices to the series when Resistance was announced by Lucasfilm back in April, but we did not know their respective character names at that time.

Of interesting note is the revelation that Rachel Butera will be providing the voice work for Leia Organa in the series.
