Though few details have been revealed for the story of The Bad Batch, the series will at least partially deal with galactic politics in the early days of the Empire. Past characters like Ahsoka, Darth Vader, Captain Rex, or Kanan Jarrus could all appear, though the focus will like stay primarily on short-term, action-oriented plotlines. The Mandalorian’s Fennec Shand is confirmed to return, with actress Ming-Na Wen reprising her role for the animated series.
Early looks at The Bad Batch indicate a younger target audience, more akin to Rebels and the early days of The Clone Wars. However, with Dave Filoni leading the project, there’s still plenty of reason for all Star Wars fans to get excited. Since Fennec will feature in the show, and since the Bad Batch themselves will be working as mercenaries, it’s possible that season 1 could set up some threads for The Book of Boba Fett. Fans will get to judge the new series for themselves when Star Wars: The Bad Batch premieres on Disney+ on May 4th.
