Ahead of its 70-minute premiere on May 4th (that's Star Wars Day to me and you), Lucasfilm has released a new poster for Star Wars: The Bad Batch. The spotlight is put on the team at the heart of the series, but Emperor Palpatine's shadow looms large...which really doesn't bode well for the clones!
What role he'll play in the proceedings remains to be seen, but as this series picks up in the aftermath of The Clone Wars animated series, the Bad Batch will likely be following the Sith Lord's orders.
This is a great poster, and we'll have much more to share with you about the Disney+ series soon.
Star Wars: The Bad Batch follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch - a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army - each possess a singular exceptional skill that makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew.
The series is executive produced by Dave Filoni (The Mandalorian), Athena Portillo (The Clone Wars), Brad Rau (Star Wars Rebels) and Jennifer Corbett (Star Wars Resistance) with Carrie Beck (The Mandalorian) as co-executive producer and Josh Rimes as producer (Star Wars Resistance). Rau is also serving as supervising director with Corbett as head writer.
