The bad batch was such an incredible addition to the clone wars season finale. The arc we got with them was exciting and showed an interesting side of the clones that we had never seen. I know that fans were dying to find out more and everyone wondered why they didn’t appear in previous seasons.
Check out our YouTube video!
But, now we will be getting a show about the bad batch following the clone wars and order 66.
These guys, as we saw, are the elite of the elite and were bred specifically for war and special operations. It seems that now the war is over they will be lost just fumbling around the galaxy trying to find purpose.
Rex told us in Rebels that the clones were phased out after order 66 and the Empire began recruiting Stormtroopers, spreading propaganda all across the galaxy.
We got a good insight into the process from the Solo movie, which was a great movie, in my opinion, and I would see a Solo 2… just saying…
Anyways, with the new show coming, I have a theory on what the plot of the show will be and what we may expect to come 2021.
This is some of the best news we’ve heard in 2020, alongside Squadrons, of course.
If only Lego Star Wars would confirm that leaked release date….
Disney has officially released that they will be mercenaries. So, we will be able to see them put their special skills to use, which will be very interesting.
With the replacement of the clones and the stormtroopers moving in, these guys have to find purpose somewhere.
Mercenaries are the perfect position for them, that is what I initially thought as soon as I heard about the newly announced show.
But what exactly will we see as they run around the galaxy as mercenaries?
Who will be their boss? Someone has to pay them.
They could work for the Star Wars underground that we have gotten glimpses of before and now have a deeper insight of because of The Mandalorian. The Bad Batch will be exploring the galaxy, working as guns for hire for whoever can afford them.
With their special skills, it will be safe to assume that they will be rather expensive.
Perhaps they will work for the illustrious Jabba the Hutt? Maybe even work for some pirates, but, more likely against some pirates.
Also, what sort of missions will they do exactly?
We won’t know until it premieres, but perhaps they will be working for some of the Star Wars corporations that have some missions that need to be accomplished, or maybe they will begin with working for the Empire, knocking out a few more missions before they are finally retired from serving for them.
They could be hired to defend some farmers from raiders, as escorts for crimelords and high profile beings, or perhaps they will go rogue and become entities who do their own thing.
This is where things will get interesting and hopefully where we get insight into the star wars underground, some secret missions for crime lords, or like I said before maybe even some star wars corporations.
Overall, it will be very interesting to see what role these clones will play in the galaxy post order 66 because the reality of the clones is that they were the perfect beings to pull this off. With the inhibitor chip forcing them to turn on the Jedi and with almost all the Jedi gone, it Palpatine can resort to propaganda and recruiting the citizens of the galaxy to join the Empire, something we got to see in Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Now, did the bad batch execute order 66?
We do not know for sure, but we know for sure that they were deemed as defective clones by Kamino, giving them their nickname. With this information, we can assume that they did not execute order 66 because the Kaminoans were so efficient and professional, it doesn’t seem like they would bother putting a chip in defective clones.
With that being said, that is still just a theory and hopefully, we can get an answer in the series, which I am positive we will.
Following the Bad Batch through-out the series will be interesting. Their journey and character arcs will probably turn them toward working for the Rebels and against the Empire, but until that point, it will be exciting to watch them use their special skills across the galaxy. The few episodes that they were in for The Clone Wars final season had introduced what some of the clones could have been, so it will be great to see them go deeper into this group.
The animation style is likely going to stay the same, which is great because Season 7 was insane. The update blew my mind and I’m sure it did yours, too. Remember that fight scene between Ahsoka and Maul? Ya, I’ll never forget it either.
What do you expect to see from the newly announced Bad Batch Tv show? I’m stoked that this is coming, I love the animation style for The Clone Wars and although Rebels was fantastic, I prefer that style more. Disney is giving us tons of great new Star Wars content! What are you most excited about? Let me know down in the comments, I would love to hear from you guys!
Thank you for reading and remember… utinni!
