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). Rau is also serving as supervising director with Corbett as head writer.
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.
