Critic Reviews for Star Wars: Resistance Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2)

At the end of its first hour, Resistance feels pleasantly primed with potential.

Oct 8, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Star Wars Resistance paints with a much brighter, more colorful palette, but at least initially settles for more pallid characters and situations -- the kind that don't immediately suggest this is the animated show you're looking for.

Oct 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Either way though, the mix of Star Wars references with a largely unrelated, emotional reunion set against a huge action set piece made for a great episode of Resistance.

Nov 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Oscar Isaac is always a delight as Poe Dameron. I hadn't realized how much I missed his specific brand of humor! I quite literally laughed out loud at multiple line deliveries.

Nov 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Lighthearted series addition has action, downplays violence.

Oct 9, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

From the beginning, Resistance sets itself apart from The Clone Wars and Rebels that came before it.

Oct 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Resistance has all the hallmarks of a potentially-rich show... But what we may get is a new Star Wars RPG/racing game masquerading as a TV show, with vague, shifting, one-note personalities based solely on plot needs.

Oct 8, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Fantastic animation, and a well-written addition to the canon, with characters that hook you from the get go.

Oct 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Know this: The Star Wars Resistance premiere is a fun watch, and as good a reason as any to tune into Disney late on a Sunday night. Where it goes from there, we'll just have to wait and see.

Oct 5, 2018 | Rating: 7.9/10 | Full Review…

Thus far, Resistance feels a bit like the Star Wars galaxy's version of Waterworld, and I don't mean that as an insult; people forget the original was pretty good.

Oct 5, 2018 | Full Review…

Without needing to connect to the Star Wars saga in an immensely profound or meaningful way, Resistance can just focus on telling a fun, entertaining story of hotshot pilots and the starships they fly.

Oct 4, 2018 | Full Review…

It's an entertaining enough hour for kids -- my 8-year-old was spellbound -- but whether it attracts adult viewers as Rebels and Clone Wars did probably depends on how the show's serialized story develops.

Audience Reviews for Star Wars: Resistance: Season 1

  • Dec 14, 2020
    I liked how it showed a different side of the galaxy and a young non Jedi struggling to do what he could to help the resistance show was funny and has way more potential
  • Jul 28, 2020
    Truly Disney-fied Star Wars at its most annoying, with a first season of mostly fillers and by-the-numbers kids-cartoon characterization that make you question whether this is even remotely fitting the franchise label. If anything, though, I do recommend the final five episodes, as it took until THEN to finally get it's slow-building arc in motion and raise the emotional stakes.
  • May 26, 2020
    Honestly, this isn't that great of a show. First of all, the war between the First Order and Resistance is no where near as interesting as the Clone Wars and the Galactic Civil War. Secondly, the art style isn't that good and honestly feels a bit lazy that they went with such a simple form of animation. And lastly, the characters and episode plots just aren't that interesting. No one ever dies in the episodes, making it feel cheesy and lame. I'm pretty sure someone counted that out of all the episodes in the first season, only about 15 blaster shots were fired. Now I understand that this is a kids show, but look at Rebels. That was aimed towards kids, but it still provided entertainment for older audiences and even made me laugh a few times. I suggest you just watch The Clone Wars and Rebels instead.
  • May 03, 2020
    A step below Rebels, in my opinion, but not far below. The series picks up steam as it goes along, and as the characters mature, so does the depth of storylines and thematic elements. Kaz might be one of my least favorite characters in the show, as he can be frustratingly clumsy and ill-equipped for his position. The other characters make up for him, though, and by the end of the season, he's become much more interesting.
  • Feb 14, 2020
    At first I thought the new series was a flop, but I have to admit it's not that bad
  • Feb 04, 2020
    Pretty boring. The characters are gullible... Like really gullible.
  • Jan 27, 2020
    A so-so season. Will next season pick up? :/
  • Jan 23, 2020
    Lame stories. Kaz is the worst star wars character ever. Makes Jar Jar look like James Bond. Neeku is the only good thing about the show. If not for him I'd given it a half of a star.
  • Jan 21, 2020
    Really tried to get into it but it is an obvious drop in quality from the Clone Wars and even Rebels. It's honestly not worth watching as it doesn't do a good job of explaining the lore of the ST. Best to view this whole thing as non canon and hope Disney retcons their Sequel Trilogy.

    A Disney serial for kids...
