Begun, the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars has.
The long-awaited conclusion to the Emmy-winning animated series kicks off with “The Bad Batch,” available to stream now on Disney+. The first of 12 new episodes to be released weekly, “The Bad Batch” finds clone troopers Rex and Cody teaming up with an elite squad to solve a troubling mystery. You can watch the trailer for the season below.
From Dave Filoni, director and executive producer of The Mandalorian, the new Clone Wars episodes will continue storylines introduced in the original series, exploring the events leading up to Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.
Created by George Lucas, with Dave Filoni as executive producer / supervising director, The Clone Wars stars Matt Lanter as Anakin Skywalker, Ashley Eckstein as Ahsoka Tano, Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex and the clone troopers, James Arnold Taylor as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan, and Sam Witwer as Maul.
The resumption of Star Wars: The Clone Wars after about ten years is a bit of a surprise. We thought we, and Lucasfilm, were done with the series. The new trailer announces an additional twelve episodes that finishes the story and hopefully ties up all the loose ends.
