    Couldn't find a dedicated thread, if there is one already I apologize, feel free to move this post there.

    So, what do you guys think we'll see in the series?

    I am expecting something “big” regarding this show anywhere from today (2/18) to the end of march (around 3/20). The reason I am confident is because D23 (the official fanclub of the Walt Disney Company) announced their next quarterly printed issue will feature secrets and info about The Bad Batch. I subscribe to this magazine and I have found through experience that their “exclusives” are not actually so; the articles in the magazines are more like embellishments from recent trailers/announcements/releases. The quarterly magazine usually arrives by the end of March.
    I am expecting a longer trailer of some kind very soon...

    I for one hope they make the Bad Batch likeable. Yes, they were cool in their episodes, but their standoff-ish nature and holier-than-thou attitude towards most clones we've grown to love (and the lack of characterization from 90% of the enemies) made them feel like jerks to me. The show doesn't actually have to make them not-Jerks, it just has to make them likeable.

    As for a release date, I wouldn't expect anything until late July or early August at the earliest. Disney doesn't seem to like two new shows airing at the same time (yet), and Marvel has a firm grip on the schedule until late June, and that's assuming "What If...?" doesn't come out right after Loki, which is a big assumption to make.

    But even if it does, that may be the time to ease Star Wars fans back into the fray. It would provide a sign that Disney hasn't forgotten about its Star Wars fans, and provide a nice teaser for what's to come later in the year.

    Then again, if the MCU method of back-to-back shows works (and there aren't any signs that it won't), Lucasfilm may want to release this before the Book of Boba Fett and Mando Season 3.

    Since there won't be a SW Celebration this year, perhaps LFL will use May the 4th to releace dates and drum up enthusiasm.

    The Disney+ Star Wars shows have been pretty cagey with dates for a while, and announcements rarely equal release date reveals. TCW Season 7 was revealed at least a year before it was released. Star Wars Resistance was announced in April, had a trailer in August, and then premiered in October. So I'm guessing we won't know anything until closer to its release date. But I also like @Angelman's theory about May 4.

    May 4th. It will also be the first Disney+ show I won't get around to watching. Didn't care for them before, it still don't get why they are going down this road. To me it just seems like a Bad Idea.

    Yes I do! And I'll share the prize with when I win, pal! :D



    (Also, I totally didn't mean that they'd release Bad Batch on 4th of May, only that they might chose that date to tell us more about when it would launch! But don't tell anybody, ok? I really like sounding smart so I'm gonna claim this as legit and don't want anyone to realize I'm a fraud.... :oops: ).

    Well, I'm glad I was wrong and @Angelman was right! It's still interesting though. We're getting 1.5-2 weeks off between major shows still. I'm not sure this will be accurate going forward, or if if we can use that to count how many episodes - will it be a full television season like TCW 1-5, Rebels, and Resistance? Or will it be a shorter season like TCW 6 & 7, The Mandalorian, and the MCU shows?

    May the Fourth is the release date (it took them long enough to announce it.) I haven’t heard how many episodes this show will contain; naturally, I’m hoping for the most possible. I’m also confused as to the tone of the show. It could be more serious like Clone Wars or somewhat lighthearted like the earlier Rebels episodes. I hope they go as dark as possible. It’ll be the only visual star wars media until later this year.

    My biggest hope for this show is that they reincorporate the remaining unproduced Clone Wars arcs. Since that series appears to be finished for good now, it seems like The Bad Batch will be our next best hope to see those lost arcs come to fruition. That, and more generally I hope they account for some of the characters such as Cad Bane whose fates were left unresolved.

    But I am pretty excited for the show regardless.

    Well, I got my quarterly D23 magazine which was promised to have info on the Bad Batch..... it ended up having very little on the actual upcoming show. Just the voice actor and how tough it is to play multiple roles. The article also stated that he was involved in the “voice” of frog lady in that Mandalorian episode. I’m still hoping for a new trailer some time now and before May 4.

    I found the new trailer to be engaging. I'm curious who the kid is.

    Yesss!! that would be awesome! i really do hope that they include a couple of protagonists and antagonists from the clone wars, we already have seen Rex in the trailer as well as the zygerrians, so it will cool to see how they are incorporated into the series. and as for using unused arcs, as much as a hate to say this, the bad batch is probably not going to be able to use them, since TCW was during the age of the republic and the bad batch will be during the empire.

    I’d be weird without Dooku or Grevious since they are dead. Ventress maybe? She could be one antagonist. I don’t think she has a cannon death yet so... that may happen if she is included

    That is a good point about the arcs. Although it just makes me wonder why they didn't bother to do an eighth season after reviving the series. Did they just feel that the remaining arcs weren't worth telling any more, and/or they wanted to move on with a brand new animated series at that point maybe?

    I feel that the seventh season really was a true score end of the CW. Especially with the last episode where we see vader. They couldn’t really do another season but ya never know. I think the sole purpose of the final season was to end the clone wars in a way that people wanted while it helped bridge together the Skywalker saga a bit.
