This weekend, Star Wars Resistance takes flight once more in The High Tower! The official synopsis from Lucasfilm reads:

The First Order arrives at the Platform for mysterious reasons; Kaz and BB-8 are determined to find out what they want.

After a few weeks of familiarizing ourselves with the strange new setting that is the Colossus refueling station on the remote planet Castilon, the introduction of the First Order brings a change of pace. While we are still a few months from the open conflict that begins in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the cold war that we know will end with the destruction of the New Republic is accelerating, and neutral ground like the Colossus is in as much jeopardy as anywhere else. A preview clip hints that Captain Doza, leader of the Colossus, may have questionable loyalties already.

In addition to the return of the First Order, this episode features the long-awaited proper introduction of Hype Fazon, the Rodian flyboy played by longtime Star Wars fan Donald Faison, as well as Captain Doza. Here’s a gallery of images from “The High Tower” courtesy of Lucasfilm Ltd.

Kazuda Xiono is unlikely to sit by and watch these ominous proceedings unfold, but we’ll be able to do just that when “The High Tower” airs on Disney Channel on Sunday, October 28 at 10 PM ET/PT and goes live on the DisneyNOW app and Disney Channel VOD at 12:01 AM that same day.
