'Star Wars Resistance' looks great but lacks 'Rebels' spirit

"Star Wars Rebels" was a creative bright spot in that cinematic universe, chronicling the years before the first movie, "A New Hope." Making the jump to a similar period in the run-up to the current trilogy and "The Force Awakens," "Star Wars Resistance" paints with a much brighter, more colorful palette, but at least initially settles for more pallid characters and situations -- the kind that don't immediately suggest this is the animated show you're looking for.
