Disney Plus gets new animation Star Wars called series Star Wars: The Bad Batch, which is expected to debut on the streaming service in 2021. The new show is a spin-off of the recent The Clone Wars animation series, which ended its run on Disney Plus earlier this year.

As The Clone Wars, Rebels, and live action The Mandalorian, The wrong lot is produced by Dave Filoni, who has become one of the instrumental pieces of the upcoming Disney Star Wars strategy, especially with regard to the company’s television series.

The wrong lot will focus on the defending clone troopers – of Clone Force 99, aka “The Bad Batch” – who were first introduced in the last season of The Clone Wars (which was released exclusively Disney Plus years after its first cancellation). The Bad Batch is an elite group of soldiers who possess unique skills of standard clones. (For example, one has improved eyesight, making him an excellent sniper, while another was physically taller with improved strength.)

The new series takes place in “the post-war era of clones”, which would place it chronologically between Clone Wars and Rebels and will focus on the four clones as they “undertake daring mercenary missions” and “fight to stay afloat and find a new goal” after the fall of the Republic and the rise of the Empire.

“While the Clone Wars may have come to an end, our partnership with storytellers and revolutionary artists from Lucasfilm Animation has only just begun. We are excited to bring Dave Filoni’s vision to life through the next Bad Batch adventures, “said Agnes Chu, senior vice president of content at Disney Plus, in an announcement of the series.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch is expected to debut on Disney Plus in 2021, but it’s by no means the only one Star Wars TV series in preparation for the streaming service. Season 2 of The Mandalorian is expected to debut on Disney Plus this fall, with a third season already in development. There is also the Diego Luna led by Rogue One focused on rebel spy Cassian Andor, a long-awaited Obi-Wan series with Ewan McGregor, and a “women-centered” series from Leslye Headland, co-creator and showrunner for Netflix Russian doll.
