Disney Announces New Animated Series – STAR WARS: THE BAD BATCH

    The Bad Batch is an all-new animated series coming to Disney+ in 2021 that follows a squad of elite, genetically enhanced clones first introduced in a four-episode arc of The Clone Wars.

    According to a press release, The Bad Batch will pick up after the events of The Clone Wars and will be about the Bad Batch taking on “daring mercenary missions as they struggle to stay afloat and find new purpose.”

    Also known as Clone Force 99, the clones who make up the Bad Batch have been genetically enhanced and each possess a singular unique skill.

    “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 Disney+’s SVP of Content, Agnes Chu. “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.”

    Alongside Filoni, Athena Portillo (The Clone Wars), Brad Rau (Star Wars Rebels) and Jennifer Corbett (Star Wars Resistance) will serve as EPs, with Rau as supervising director and with Corbett as head writer.
