    Default New Disney+ animated series: The Bad Batch

    The series will of course feature the team from Clone Wars but will take place after the Clone Wars, presumably during the early Empire era, with the Clones becoming a mercenary squad.

    I was wondering about what happened to the Bad Batch after Order 66.

    Wow, they are reallyyyyy trying to stay away from the sequel trilogy aren't they?

    I enjoyed them in Clone Wars, and it would be cool to see more of the Clone Trooper/Storm Trooper transition, so I'll watch it. But what does a guy have to do to get some pre-Phantom Menace expansion?

    There was the Resistance series that ended shortly before Rise of Skywalker, and Mandalorian is set after ROTJ and might tie into some plot threads (There's rumors of Chewbacca & Luke appearences, for example, and given the show's use of the Empire possibly some First Order stuff will eventually wind up there).

    They kind of seem to be bouncing on several different eras, especially since they've got more creative freedom to fill up what's between ROTJ and TFA (In which not much happened to the main characters until Ben went bad, but other things were definetly going on).

    Well, there is that new line of books coming out. I think it's called The High Republic.

    There was supposed to be a follow-up with the team on Kashyyyk, parts of it did have some early animation done. So a series surrounding this makes sense to do a follow up to since it's a small cast and the heavy lifting for story direction has been done already. This is a lot easier to green light than something in the sequels.

    Considering they seemed to get along well, I'm curious if this series will touch on what happened to Cody.

    Meh. I have nothing against reading (being an avid reader myself) but reading a lightsaber battle isn't as fun as seeing one in motion.

    Yeah, Obi-Wan didn't kill him (Although I've read this was considered in early versions of the story). There was also an abandoned Rebels concept where Thrawn would bring in Cody to face off against Rex and his fellow clones.

    The Bad Batch is going to be the Mission Impossible of Star Wars

    I really hope they will tie the Bad Batch with SCAR squadron somehow. Kreel's squad is Task Force 99, so there must be a link.

    That's my hope as well, with the focus supposedly on the transition between being clone commandos to storm troopers and their dirty dozen like similarities it really makes sense.

    i.e.- Dee Bradley
