The Bad Batch is set to be the centrepiece of this year’s Star Wars Day. The 75-minute debut episode will reintroduce us to Clone Force 99, who we last saw in the final season of The Clone Wars. All indications are that it’s going to be something special, though by the time it drops I’m hoping we’ll have also seen new teasers for at least some of the many upcoming Disney+ Star Wars shows like Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor, and The Book of Boba Fett.
In any case, to get folks caught up on what they need to know before The Bad Batch arrives, the Mouse House has now put together a handy little promo which you can see up above. Remember, they also suggested Clone Wars episodes to catch up on prior to the premiere and between that and this new video, folks should be able to get fully up to speed in no time.
Rumors are that the show’s arc will see one of the Bad Batch members betray the others and side with the Empire. I can’t imagine the rest of them taking this lying down, so expect some serious sparks to fly when they finally get their revenge. Along the way we’re also due to receive guest spots from several already established characters, with The Mandalorian‘s Fennec Shand, Rogue One‘s Saw Gerrara, The Clone Wars‘ Captain Rex, and A New Hope‘s Grand Moff Tarkin all confirmed to make appearances.
A previously released poster hints at Emperor Palpatine playing a part in the story as well, but his role remains mysterious as of now. Everything should become clear soon, though, when The Bad Batch premieres on Disney Plus on May 4th.
