Star Wars: The Bad Batch is almost here and we've found the perfect way to prepare for the show's upcoming premiere. Star Wars has just dropped a new featurette for the animated series and it introduces you to every member of Clone Force 99.
The featurette opens with a quick explanation of what is happening in the galaxy. We get a glimpse of how bad things got after Order 66 was executed. However, it also confirms that this story is about "an unlikely few" during the rise of the Galactic Empire. This is when we meet The Bad Batch.
We kick off with Hunter (The Leader) who also specializes in tracking and stealth. Wrecker (The Brawler) is known for his brute strength and love for fights.
Meanwhile, Tech (The Specialist) is an expert data analyst, and Echo (The Hacker) has that socket arm the team uses to get in and out of tight spaces. Finally, Crosshair (The Marksman) has the superior vision that he uses for efficient sniping jobs. That's The Bad Batch just for you.
It's an awesome refresher in case you have already forgotten what happened in the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. After all, these characters first appeared in the animated series and we're delighted that they are getting their own show. Needless to say, we can't wait to see The Bad Batch in action again this Tuesday.
Star Wars: The Bad Batch once again features the voice of Dee Bradley Baker as Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, Echo, and Crosshair. The series will premiere on Disney+ on May 4, 2021.
