Subscribe To Star Wars: Resistance's Donald Faison Talks Live-Action Hype Fazon Updates
Star Wars: Resistance just dropped the trailer for its final season, and Kaz and all his friends (save one) are bringing the fight to the The First Order in what is teased to be an epic conclusion. We don't know exactly what's going to happen, but the trailer showed many of the beloved characters from Season 1, including Donald Faison's Rodian Hype Fazon in the mix.
CinemaBlend's TV editor Nick Venable spoke exclusively to Donald Faison during the TCA summer press tour about Star Wars: Resistance, and talked to the actor about his character. With Star Wars: Resistance ending, fans may not necessarily lose Fazon, as the actor is more than willing to appear in a live-action Star Wars film as his humanoid character.
Donald Faison is more than willing to appear in live-action as Hype Fazon, to the point he's willing to learn Rodian. That's something we've yet to hear the character speak in Star Wars: Resistance, as most all characters on the Colossus speak Basic. Faison may be willing to play Hype, but is there any room in the Star Wars films or live-action television projects for him to appear?
It's certainly possible, as Donald Faison said his Star Wars: Resistance character's similar last name to his own is more than just a reference. It turns out Hype is part of a long line of Rodians who have been around in the world of Star Wars for some time.
Donald Faison may be willing to play Hype Fazon in live-action, but there's still a big question mark on whether or not he'll ever appear as the character in a live-action movie or series. Star Wars: Resistance Season 2 takes place during the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and will lead right up to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Provided Hype survives the season, the Emergence star has a chance of appearing, although he may not get a chance anytime soon with Episode IX concluding the Skywalker Saga.
With that said, Donald Faison has had a charmed experience in the Star Wars franchise so far, and got his role in Star Wars: Resistance after an encounter with Dave Filoni at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere.
It sounds like Donald Faison was ready to play a character in the Star Wars franchise for a while, and while he didn’t quite get the live-action role he initially thought he would, he’s got a shot of it happening in some way with Hype. Even if it were some sort of small cameo like the Star Wars: Rebels references in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, wouldn't that be great?
