A couple of days ago we got the first trailer for Disney’s Star Wars Resistance, a new animated series taking place prior to the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and following a young ace pilot in the struggle against the rising First Order.
The show is set to feature familiar faces such as Poe Dameron and Captain Phasma, with Oscar Isaac and Gwendoline Christie reprising their roles from the Sequel Trilogy, and now we also have confirmation that General Leia Organa will appear in the series, voiced by Rachel Butera (Tammy’s Tiny Tea Time)
I can finally announce that I have the incomprehensible honor of voicing the role of Leia Organa in the new Star Wars Resistance out this October. Thank you @CESDTalent @DisneyLucasfilm @sternshow + Carrie Fisher. Sneak peak trailer here: https://t.co/4bVZW4Nvf6

We do of course also have one live-action appearance from the Princess remaining, with Disney and Lucasfilm set to incorporate unused footage of the late Carrie Fisher into next year’s Star Wars: Episode IX.
Star Wars: Resistance will feature the voice talents of Christopher Sean (Days of Our Lives) as Kazudo Xiono, Suzie McGrath (East Enders) as Tam Ryvora, Scott Lawrence (Legion) as Jarek Yeager, Myrna Velasco (Elena of Avalor) as Torra Doza, Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) as Neeku Vozo, Donald Faison (Scrubs) as Hype Fazon, Jim Rash (Community) and Bobby Moynihan (DuckTales) as Flix and Orka, respectively, Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) as Poe Dameron, Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones) as Captain Phasma and Rachel Butera (Tammy’s Tiny Tea Time) as General Leia Organa.
