One-hour premiere “The Recruit” summary via Oh My Disney
Poe and BB-8 are going to send a newly-appointed spy named Kaz to a huge aircraft re-fueling platform called Colossus, which resides on an outer rim water planet. Kaz will work undercover as a mechanic, living with Poe’s old friend Yeager—a veteran pilot who operates a starship repair shop with his crew: Tam, Neeku, and their astromech droid, Bucket. But Kaz is going to run into trouble with his new buddy BB-8, all while keeping his mission a secret. Sounds like an exciting adventure that we can’t wait to see more of!
Star Wars stars Oscar Isaac and Gwendoline Christie are voicing their movie counterparts, Poe Dameron and Captain Phasma, respectfully in the new animated series.
