LUCASFILM // JULY 13, 2020

STAR WARS: THE BAD BATCH, AN ALL-NEW ANIMATED SERIES, TO DEBUT ON DISNEY+ IN 2021

CLONE FORCE 99, FROM STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS, RETURNS!

Today, Disney+ ordered its next animated series from Lucasfilm, Star Wars: The Bad Batch. Fresh off of the critically-acclaimed series finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the Disney+ original series will premiere on the streaming service in 2021.

The series 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, 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.

“Giving new and existing fans the final chapter of Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been our honor at Disney+, and we are overjoyed by the global response to this landmark series,” said Agnes Chu, senior vice president, Content, Disney+.  “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 is executive produced by Dave Filoni (The Mandalorian, Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Athena Portillo (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), Brad Rau (Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars Resistance) and Jennifer Corbett (Star Wars Resistance, NCIS) with Carrie Beck (The Mandalorian, Star Wars Rebels) as co-executive producer and Josh Rimes as producer (Star Wars Resistance). Rau is also serving as supervising director with Corbett as head writer.

Hmm. I thought the BB episodes were kinda cheesy but I’ll definitely give it a shot.

Didn't like them as much as the sisters, but I'll give it a try.

At some point before Order 66, a misfit clone unit was sent to The Clone Wars by an animator for a series of episodes that needed a boost. These men promptly escaped from a streaming obscurity to a feature role. Today, still wanted by the Kaminoan government they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them....maybe you can hire The Bad Batch.

You serious, Chewbacca? The sisters were terrible. They might be the worst characters of the Disney era and that's saying something.

Agreed. Not the direction I wanted, but I trust Dave.

Yes, I'm serious. The Bad Batch seemed like the most crassly toy-driven characters of the modern era. The sisters were merely mediocre.

I mean I'm obviously in...but where the fuck is our Rebels "Ahsoka/Sabine find Ezra/Thrawn" sequel?

 

And yes the Bad Batch episodes were better than the Sisters episodes(even though the sisters episodes get too much shit and were needed to flesh out Ahsoka some more)

That sequel is going to be live action. I thought you had commented on that?  Anyway, Ashoka and Sabine are cast and will be in Mandolorian S2. From what I’ve read they are there to set the stage for the non-Mando spinoff that will be them going after Ezra.

They were horrible.  Seemed like that story would never end.

Nah I know they cast Rosario as Ahsoka for the Mandalorian, but I must have missed word of a live action sequel to Rebels.  Wouldn't think Filoni would do that.

I thought it was mainly the Orange Is the New Black older sister who helped make the character suck more.

Yeah I don't think anything is official, but the speculation is that they are using Mando season 2 as a jumping off point for live action spinoffs of various Rebels characters.  We know Ashoka is showing up and likely Sabine, given the presence of the dark saber, and their search for Ezra would be explored and likely lead to an Ezra/Thrawn series in the future.

So in the last season of Clone Wars, Ray Parker was brought in for motion-capture Darth Maul.  Filoni directing, of course.

Did not realize that (need to look at the credits more often).

There was a pretty cool youtube on the making of that episode.  Probably linked in the Clone Wars thread

Yep and he had is long time friend mocap for Ahsoka as well.  That's why the fight scene between those two looked so different and almost real.
