Watch Disney's Star Wars: The Force Awakens Prequel Show, Star Wars: The Resistance Rises
Last night, Disney XD aired the first episode of LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises, a new series that will detail the events that lead directly to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 'Poe to the Rescue' is now available to watch online, and features a number of The Force Awakens' key players in action, including Captain Phasma, Poe Dameron, and Kylo Ren.

At under 10 minutes long, these shorts are going to be perfect for the attention-challenged, but they'll also be great for anybody jonesing for more of their favorite TFA characters. This first episode sees Resistance hot-shot Poe Dameron embark on a daring mission to rescue Admiral Ackbar from the clutches of Captain Phasma and The First Order. But not even Kylo Ren is able to stop The Resitance's best pilot, and it soon comes down to a battle between Poe and a squadron of First Order TIE Fighters.



There are some nice moments packed into these 7 minutes or so. C-3PO doing his best to tease the reasons behind his new red arm (which will be explained in an upcoming Marvel comic series), and what appears to be Clone Wars legend Tom Kane returning to do the introductory narration. 

You'll be able to catch this series of shorts on Disney XD every week, and don't forget to keep an eye out for the upcoming LEGO series, Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, which heads to the same channel this Summer.
