Star Wars The Bad Batch Trailer

Created by Dave Filoni and first introduced in The Clone Wars, Clone Force 99 was a group of fan-favorite characters who are now getting their own spin-off series exploring their adventures in the aftermath of the Clone Wars. Dubbing themselves The Bad Batch, the group evade execution orders and recruit new members as they navigate the galaxy. The new official trailer re-introduces each member of the group — Wrecker, Tech, Crosshair, Hunter, and Echo — all voiced by Dee Bradley Baker. The series also teases the return of Ming Na-Wen's elite mercenary Fennec Shand, who first appeared in the flagship Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian.

"The Clone Wars have ended. You can either adapt and survive or die with the past. The decision is yours," a character tells Clone Force 99. They respond with predictable gruffness: "We do what we do."

The Clone Wars executive producer Dave Filoni (possibly the busiest man on this side of the galaxy, with his ongoing work on Disney+'s flagship show The Mandalorian) will also be executive producing Star Wars: The Bad Batch along with Athena PortilloBrad RauJennifer Corbett, and Carrie Beck, all of whom have had Star Wars experience on either The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars Resistance, or The MandalorianJosh Rimes (Star Wars Resistance) will also act as a producer on the series, with Rau serving as supervising director and Corbett acting as head writer.
