The final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars is almost here and we finally have our first official look at the premiere episode. The new trailer for The Bad Batch teases at a dangerous mission and the unlikely heroes who may or may not save the day.
The trailer opens with Mace Windu declaring that there are currently losing several battlefronts but that's fine because Captain Rex has a plan. They intend to bring a small squad behind enemy lines in an effort to find intel. But who could they possibly send? Enter Clone Force 99.
But who exactly is Clone Force 99? Amazingly, they are clones who call themselves the Bad Batch. But that doesn't mean they can't put up a fight. Interestingly, they have "desirable mutations" which may include the need to get into the action with no questions asked.
Not surprisingly, they also have a sense of humor. At one point, they are reminded that "this is a stealth mission" but immediately charge into a fight. "So much for stealth," one of the clones says sarcastically. Needless to say, I can't wait to meet these guys later this month.
The synopsis for The Bad Batch reads as follows:
"Captain Rex and the Bad Batch must infiltrate an enemy base on Anaxes."
Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7 will be the final season for the beloved animated series and is expected to lead up to the events that take place in Revenge of the Sith. The show will premiere on Disney+ on February 21.
