Lucasfilm Story Group member Pablo Hidalgo confirmed which Star Wars Resistance ships appeared in The Rise of Skywalker.
During the climactic showdown between the Resistance and the Emperor’s new star destroyer fleet, the rebels were joined by a legion of ships who arrived just in time to save the nearly doomed heroes in the battle over Exegol. Of course, eagle-eyed fans have been pouring over footage from the scene to see if any famous ships from other Star Wars projects joined the fray and now Pablo Hidalgo has confirmed at least three Resistance vessels answered the call for help.
Set shortly before the events of the sequel trilogy, Star Wars Resistance is an animated series that follows the New Republic pilot Kazuda Xiono as he accepts a Resistance mission to spy on the rising First Order. Now, Pablo Hidalgo has confirmed that the Fireball, Jarek Yeager’s racer, and Torra Doza’s ship were among the 14,000 vessels that accompanied Lando Calrissian to Exegol to defeat the First Order once and for all.
