The Clone Wars may be over, but there is still more to tell and show us about the characters we met on the show. Disney+ ordered a new animated series from Lucasfilm: “Star Wars: The Bad Batch”!
We were first introduced to the Bad Batch in season seven of The Clone Wars. The new series will follow the team of elite Clones, as they find their way in a changing galaxy in the aftermath of the Clone Wars. In this early Imperial era the Bad Batch will take on mercenary missions as they seek for a new purpose. The new series is supposed to be released sometime in 2021 on Disney+. No specific release date has been given yet.
This is all the info we have at the moment. So we get a sequel, sort of, to The Clone Wars, just like Rebels, only set before Rebels. It may be of note that the Bad Batch team was one of the last things George Lucas actually co-developed, the team was his idea originally. I wonder, given the 1980s action movie tropes the Bad Batch stand for (which was the intention of George Lucas), if the new show will be anything like the A-Team.
So what do you think? Are you excited? Also, how much do you wager that Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex will eventually make an appearance?
