The show will focus on Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot, with an anime-inspired style.

The one-hour premiere titled "The Recruit" will see the return of fan favorite characters Poe (voiced by live-action Star Wars star Oscar Isaac) and BB-8 as they assign Kaz his newest task.

Brought to the aircraft re-fueling platform known as Colossus on an outer rim water planet, Kaz lives with Poe's friend Yeager. As he spies on those around him, Kaz will meet many new faces such as Yeager's starship repair shop crew members Tam, Neeku, and droid Bucket.
