We’ve been saying we were due for an announcement about Star Wars animation, and it finally arrived yesterday: The Bad Batch is getting their own series.
If you watched the final season of The Clone Wars on Disney+, you finally met Clone Force 99 – or, as they call themselves, The Bad Batch. The StarWars.com Databank says:
The motley crew that makes up Clone Force 99 boasts an astounding 100 percent success rate and skills unseen in any other clone troopers. Adept at working together, Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, and Crosshair use their unique talents and specialized physiology to execute extraordinary solutions on the battlefield. And after rescuing the clone trooper Echo from Separatist captivity, they welcome the cybernetic soldier into their fold.
On today’s episode of the show, we’ll talk about what we learned from the announcement, and take a closer look at the creative team – including their past experience, and how that may bode for the series. Punch it!
