No, there wasn’t a Star Wars movie out this Christmas, but there was a bunch of new Star Wars content released over the holiday season.


The remainder of the 12 new Star Wars Resistance shorts hit the web in the past several days, each telling a short and sweet story packed with either action or humor. Just enough to give you a little Star Wars tease as we wait not just for Resistance to return, but all the other Star Wars stuff coming this year.

Here’s a link to the full, 12-episode playlist.

However, if you only have time for a few, we recommend “Sixty Seconds to Destruction” and “The Need for Speed,” which have more footage of the platform Aces in them than most of the full-length episodes do:

Star Wars Resistance will be back to finish its first season in the coming weeks.

Did this show get any better after the first few episodes? I love Star Wars but I could not get into it at all. It was like they made a series about what it would be like if a Star Wars fan was suddenly put inside the Star Wars universe. The main dude was some kind of Republic pilot already but every single thing he came across blew his mind and he was all like, “Wowwwww!” I found him incredibly unlikable. It got cringey, fast.
