It was officially announced yesterday at the Disney Investor’s Day presentation that the animated show, Star Wars: The Bad Batch is coming to Disney Plus and the trailer was also released during last night’s presentation. This was revealed by Kathleen Kennedy during her Star Wars segment of the presentation, and she introduced a sizzle reel for the role.
The Bad Batch is a team of clones that aren’t like the rest. They were first introduced in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and they’re pretty darn cool. They all have their unique talents and they work brilliantly together as a team.
The show was originally announced in July, and The Bad Batch “follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch 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 which makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew. In the post-Clone War era, they will take on daring mercenary missions as they struggle to stay afloat and find new purpose.”
Star Wars: The Bad Batch’s trailer released and it looks epic
“Giving new and existing fans the final chapter of Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been our honour at Disney Plus, and we are overjoyed by the global response to this landmark series,” said Agnes Chu, senior vice president of content at Disney Plus. “While The Clone Wars may have come to its conclusion, our partnership with the groundbreaking storytellers and artists at Lucasfilm Animation is only beginning. We are thrilled to bring Dave Filoni’s vision to life through the next adventures of The Bad Batch.”
Star Wars: The Bad Batch does not yet have a release date. However, it will be landing on Disney Plus.
