Disney+ has finally shared the first trailer and poster for Lucasfilm Animation's acclaimed series, Star Wars: The Bad Batch. It's also been revealed that the show will begin streaming on January 4, 2023, with the first two episodes.
When the new season begins, months have passed since the events on Kamino, and the Bad Batch continue their journey navigating the Empire after the fall of the Republic. They will cross paths with friends and foes, both new and familiar, as they take on a variety of thrilling mercenary missions that will take them to unexpected and dangerous new places.
Based on the teaser (which was first shared on SFFGazette.com), Omega and the team will have a fresh set of challenges to tackle as Lucasfilm continues to explore this key period in Star Wars history. The show has already filled in a lot of gaps, and we anticipate that continuing as this story plays out.
In terms of big reveals, we see a lightsaber-wielding Wookie, more Emperor Palpatine in the Galactic Senate, and the return of Captain Rex as he enlists the team for a new mission.
Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 2 stars Emmy Award nominee Dee Bradley Baker as the voice of the Bad Batch, along with Michelle Ang as the voice of Omega. Rhea Perlman returns to guest star as Cid, Noshir Dalal returns to guest star as Vice Admiral Rampart, and Wanda Sykes makes her guest starring debut in the series as Phee Genoa.
The animated series is executive produced by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Athena Portillo, Brad Rau, Jennifer Corbett, and Carrie Beck, with Josh Rimes and Alex Spotswood as producers. Rau is also serving as supervising director with Corbett as head writer and Matt Michnovetz as story editor.
