With just a few weeks until the release of the first episode of the new animated series “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” on May 4th, Lucasfilm and The Walt Disney Company released a striking new poster for the series.
The poster features Clone Force 99, a.k.a. the Bad Batch, along with a brand new character, a young child who we first saw in the series trailer.
Disney also has released a new emoji on Twitter of Hunter, who is leader of the Bad Batch. Simply use the hashtag #TheBadBatch to add the emoji.
“Star Wars: The Bad Batch” follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in “The Clone Wars”) 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.
“Star Wars: The Bad Batch” is executive produced by Dave Filoni (“The Mandalorian,” “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”), Athena Portillo (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” “Star Wars Rebels”), Brad Rau (“Star Wars Rebels,” “Star Wars Resistance”) and Jennifer Corbett (“Star Wars Resistance,” “NCIS”) with Carrie Beck (“The Mandalorian,” “Star Wars Rebels”) as co-executive producer and Josh Rimes as producer (“Star Wars Resistance”). Rau is also serving as supervising director with Corbett as head writer.
