The Clone Wars spin-off series ‘The Bad Batch‘ will officially debut on Disney Plus in May
The Bad Batch is coming. After the impressive return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Lucasfilm moved quickly to announce a new spin-off series focussing on ‘Clone Force 99’. Titled The Bad Batch, the series follows the elite and experimental clones as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy.
CLONE FORCE 99
Aside from the initial announcement, and the turbocharged sizzle reel, there have been little or no new details about the series. But all that may be about to change. Because today, Disney has announced that Star Wars: The Bad Batch will release on Disney Plus on May 4. (aka Star Wars Day).
“Disney has announced that Star Wars: The Bad Batch will premiere on Tuesday, May 4th. Per the official synopsis, “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in “The Clone Wars”) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War.
Members of Bad Batch—a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army – each possess a singular exceptional skill that makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew.”
STAR WARS DAY
Fans of the franchise finally have something to smile about. We have been starved of content since the sensational climax of The Mandalorian Season 2. And with The Book Of Boba Fett still over ten months away – releasing The Bad Batch so soon is a win-win for both franchise and fans.
Alongside Clone Force 99, the series will feature The Mandalorian bounty hunter Fennec Shand, voice by Ming-Na Wen. The show is going all-out to explore her past, all the while expanding on the lore of the Skywalker Saga in the aftermath of Order 66.
Exciting times ahead in the galaxy far, far away.
