Fans React to “The Bad Batch”

“They’re defective clones with uh … desirable mutations.” This one quote from Captain Rex (double check name) set the stage in the final season of The Clone Wars and now The Bad Batch are set to make a reappearance in a show all their own in 2021.


Clone Force 99 or “The Bad Batch” are a troop of clones that made their appearance in the final season of The Clone Wars show on Disney+.  These clones are like X-men meets Star Wars as they have genetic mutations that help them see better, fight better, etc.  The original idea came from George Lucas himself as he wanted to have a squad of clones that did not follow the same abilities as everyone else.

Clone Force 99 got their name in memory of another clone that had been killed in defense of Kamino when the separatists attacked. Hence, the “nice touch” part of the quote. They also have deep ties to Anakin Skywalker, who as everyone knows took on a new identity in the Post-Clone War era as Darth Vader, when they fought alongside him during the war.  The new show is supposed to take place in the Post-Clone War era and we will see them as they try to use their abilities for whatever new purpose they will now have.


The creative team for The Bad Batch show include Dave Filoni (The Mandalorian, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as executive producer, “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.”
