Star Wars: The Bad Batch

As the Republic Falls, a Group of Clones Fights to Survive

An entirely new episodic series created by Lucasfilm Animation, Star Wars: The Bad Batch debuted in May of 2021 on Disney+. The series 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).

First appearing in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the five elite troopers that make up Clone Force 99 include Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, Echo, and Crosshair, each with his own distinct skills and characteristics. The introduction of Omega, an eager and kind-hearted adolescent clone, presents a new kind of challenge for the eclectic family unit.

The Story

The end of the Clone Wars marks the rise of the oppressive Empire. In the midst of the chaos, an elite unit of unusual clone troopers defies its orders and chooses to go on the run. Joined by a young clone named Omega, the so-called Bad Batch struggles to evade the constant pursuit of its enemies.
