It took me two years to finally understand Star Wars: Resistance. Literally, I didn’t get what the series was fully about until Sunday evening when I watched the finale. And finally, it clicked.
This wasn’t a show designed to have a tragic ending or a bittersweet conclusion like Star Wars: Rebels. This was a story about a family of rebels who came together and survived a small but important conflict with the First Order in a small section of the galaxy. There were adventures, some perilous and some humorous. There were some interesting character developments, new allies, frenemies, and villains that were met along the way, and by the series’ conclusion, we get a sense of joy very reminiscent of the joyous ending delivered in A New Hope.
The fight, of course, isn’t over but we understand that these characters, this family brought together on the Colossus will always be there for one another. And that is a beautiful story that I’m actually delighted was told.
No, both seasons weren’t perfect, but that finale was. I’m giving it 100 out 100 and 5 out 5 stars. It was a great ending to a fun story.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force be with you.
