Clip from Resistance featuring Jim Rash and Bobby Moynihan

I'm starting to think Lucasfilm played themselves with the "aimed at younger viewers" mention, which immediately got peoples' hackles up. Everything I've seen of Resistance so far and from all the previews I've read it seems like the show is no more oriented towards younger viewers than season 1 of The Clone Wars or Rebels - which is to say, aimed at kids but easily enjoyable by all. Previews I've read have mentioned there's less of a focus on violence and action (at least in the first handful of episodes) and moreso on character development (it's apparently a running gag that Kaz is terrible with a blaster), which honestly kind of seems like it would have the opposite effect to me - more appealing to mature audiences who can appreciate character growth.
