Lucasfilm has today announced a new Star Wars animated series for the Disney+ 2021 lineup.
According to Lucasfilm, the new series entitled Star Wars: The Bad Batch will be a spin-off of the critically acclaimed animated show Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and will follow the eponymous Bad Batch of clones in the aftermath of the Clone Wars. The Bad Batch were introduced in the final season of The Clone Wars, which premiered on Disney+ earlier this year.
The Bad Batch were a squad of experimental clones with very different training from their fellow clonetrooper comrades, who turn to the mercenary life after the end of the Clone Wars.
The show will be executive produced by a host of Star Wars alumni including Dave Filoni (The Mandalorian, The Clone Wars), Athena Portillo (The Clone Wars, Rebels), Brad Rau (Rebels, Resistance) and Jennifer Corbett (Resistance). Carrie Beck (The Mandalorian, Rebels) will also serve as co-executive producer, with Josh Rimes (Restistance) joining as a producer.
