With the end of Star Wars: The Clone Wars last year, many fans thought we’d reached the end of storytelling for the clone characters and everyone else we met in that series. With the announcement of Star Wars: The Bad Batch, that idea got turned on its head. The show, premiering tomorrow, takes place as a direct sequel to the The Clone Wars and follows a group of elite clones as they watch the galaxy in its transition from Republic to its first Galactic Empire.
Although Star Wars animation maestro Dave Filoni set the wheels for the show in motion, Brad Rau (producer) and Jennifer Corbett (producer, head writer), were tapped to lead the day-to-day operations of the show.
/Film was able to talk with Rau and Corbett about the show and their involvement in it.
