So far episodes 1 to 4 have been a very slow, there has been the appearance of a new First Order Interceptor and red Pilot (with a very strange helmet mashup design) and of course First Order Stormtroopers (why the long face troopers)

We also see Phasma.

A throw back to original Stormtrooper's with a helmet and armor worn by one of the pirates in episode 3.

One character yet to make an appearance, the Gold Stormtrooper "Commander"

And another throw back to imperials with an original tie pilot helmet still to be seen.

Hopefully the pace will pick up in the coming episodes.


Star Wars Resistance has received 91% on Rotten Tomatoes, average audience score 80% happy. Also received an average 5.0 out of 10 on IMDb

Watched the first few episodes, not a fan so far.

 

That said... that gold stormtrooper! That almost makes up for the show being such a snoozefest. Anyone know where I can get my FOTK kit goldplated? :P

I can't get past the animation style.  It just looks... terrible, honestly.  And those weird proportions bother me.  Cartoon proportions, fine, but Clone Wars did a great job and it was animated.  Also, the story line from what I've heard is more geared toward kids (nothing wrong with that, but I am in fact 32 and not 10 anymore).

Hey - back in '77 Star Wars was also marked at kids, and look how that turned out. ;-)   It's smart for them to target the next generation of fans.  Even for my kids (11 & 13) while they may like Star Wars and Empire, most of their favs are the newer movies like The Force Awakens and Rogue One.

The only thing I don't like about the animation is the First Order helmet. It looks like it was sat on and then smelled a bad fart. Oh well, at least the Stormie helmet looks fine.

Eh, I don't mind it. I didn't like the animated Clonetroopers or Rebels TKs at first, but they grew on me.

The FO Commander appeared in this week's episode.  And my first thought was "And there's the next CRL-in-progress for the FISD." :lol:

The "anime-inspired" style takes some getting used to, but at least they didn't take inspiration from the more ... abstract anime out there.

I have watched shows in that style, so it personally does not bother me. But I can see why some don't like it, it takes some getting used to. But still, the FO helmet though...

I actually like anime, and the style doesn't bother me.  I would say I like the more "mainstream" animes, though (Cowboy Bebop, Fullmetal Alchemist, Escaflowne, Helsing, Outlaw Star, Witch Hunter Robin).  Maybe because I've never seen those characters in anything but anime style, but here we have live action, semi-realistic computer generated animation, etc.  I also didn't much like the style of the Clone Wars movie that much, but I still like it better than this.  

 

I guess if it's not the animation I used to watch on Saturday mornings when I was a kid then it's this newfangled stuff and y'all can get off my lawn.  :laugh1:

Great, now I'm going to think of this guy as "Commander Duck." :blink:

Do you think maybe someone at Lucasfilm Animation is familiar with the Donald Duck remarks about the FO helmets, and decided to have fun with it?

After all, Disney animators have a history of putting Easter Eggs in their work ...
