New animated Star Wars series coming to Disney+
The Bad Batch will serve as a spinoff to The Clone Wars and is expected to premiere in 2021.
A new animated Star Wars series called The Bad Batch is headed to Disney+.
The show will follow the titular group of enhanced clones who were first introduced in The Clone Wars, one of Disney's other successful animated Star Wars series.
Set in the immediate aftermath of that show, it will see the team embark on daring missions and attempt to find a new purpose in a rapidly-changing galaxy.
The Bad Batch is described as a group of clones genetically different to the rest who all possess a particular exceptional skill making them highly effective soldiers.
Dave Filoni, who helped to develop The Clone Wars and served as both a writer and director on The Mandalorian, will executive produce.
Brad Rau will serve as supervising director with Jennifer Corbett as lead writer.
"Giving new and existing fans the final chapter of Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been our honour at Disney+, and we are overjoyed by the global response to this landmark series," said Agnes Chu, Disney+’s senior VP of content .
"While the Clone Wars may have come to its conclusion, our partnership with the groundbreaking storytellers and artists at Lucasfilm Animation is only beginning. We are thrilled to bring Dave Filoni's vision to life through the next adventures of The Bad Batch."
