    The Bad Batch is back! But this time, not in an official way. A new French trailer for the upcoming show leaked online this morning. The trailer not only offers new looks at the team introduced in the first arc of the final season of The Clone Wars, but also teases the return of fan-favorite characters like Fennec Shand, from The Mandalorian, and Grand Moff Tarkin. Additionally, the trailer also teases the return of two characters we hadn't seen before in any promos for the show, so we'll let you spot them for yourself. Check it out:


    <blockquote data-card-created='1617110530']A new trailer for The Bad Batch (in french)! from r/StarWarsLeaks[/QUOTE]
    <script async src='//embed.redditmedia.com/widgets/platform.js' charset='UTF-8']</script>



    This leak probably means a new trailer is on the way imminently - if not today, it will probably drop online this week. This just makes sense, as the show is now one month away. The trailer for the final season of The Clone Wars, for instance, dropped on January 22, 2020, ahead of its February 21, 2020, release date. That means exactly 30 days before, so if the trend continues, by Sunday, the English version of the trailer will be out from the official Lucasfilm channels (as well as international versions for each country). After that, we'll be getting several TV spots in the next few weeks.



    The first trailer for the show dropped in December, during Disney's Investor Day of 2020, and last month, we got our first official picture of Fennec Shand without her helmet. She will be voiced once again by Ming-Na Wen. Also returning to the Star Wars animated world is the fan-favorite composer Kevin Kiner.



    The Bad Batch will drop on Disney Plus on May 4, with new episodes dropping every Friday since then. After that, and we assume sometime before December, the new Star Wars: Visions will be released, followed up by The Book of Boba Fett at the end of the year. Stay tuned, it’s going to be an exciting year!



    UPDATE:



    Lucasfilm has now officially released the trailer (video below), and they have dropped the official poster too. From Disney:



    In addition, Lucasfilm has just announced that the first episode, coming out on May 4, will be a special 70-minute premiere. Here is the official poster:

    And here's the trailer from Star Wars' YouTube channel:

    Edit: Was that Saw Gerrera?

    It definitely was!

    The good:
    I like how they're keeping TCW's art style.
    I like Saw and Fennec. Especially Fennec. I just love Min-Na Wen.
    It seems to be an interesting way to show how the Republic army was turned into the Imperial army.

    The stuff I'm not sold on:
    The Bad Batch. I still haven't been shown why I should like them outside of "they're the best."
    The kid. Rebels and Resistance really made me skeptical about how Star Wars uses the "youthful outsider" approach. Sure, Ezra turned out fine for the most part, but...I'm just not sold on it.
    Saw Gerrera. Yes, I just said I like him, and that's true! But he's been in nearly every piece of media in some shape or form that takes place between the PT and OT. It's just a lot to me. I won't say it makes the universe smaller, but it does feel like he should at some point be able to say "hey, I saw XYZ character a while back, let me use my contacts and get you two in touch."

    I'm still going to watch this at least twice, but I'm just not there yet...

    And we do love (and by that I mean despise) them! :D I wonder if the Zygerrians will be as challenging to the Bad Batch as they were to the Jedi; I really hope so. These kinds of best-of-the-best stories really need to have some appropriate threats for the heroes to butt heads with, lest it turns boring and stupid, heh heh.

    Shiny new trailer was nice, but I'm in the same boat.... I don't feel drawn to it as a MUST watch show like Clone Wars and Rebels were. I'll wait to renew Disney+ late in the fall when BoBF & Mando Season 3 are set to run again and if the Cantina reviews for new cartoon are solid, I'll give The Bad Batch a go then. Spoilers don't concern me, so waiting to see it for myself isn't an issue.

    I wonder who Omega really is. I heard that she might be a female clone that like failed in the development stage but idk. Not in a sexist way, but a female clone would be wierd. Not because im sexist but because we have seen male clones our whole lives, ya know.

    I think it makes sense. All you need to have a female is XX chromosomes instead of XY. The only difference between a female and a male DNA wise is that one has XX and the other XY.

    Omega I think is a female clone that is force sensitive and CF 99 protect her from order 66. The palp clone theory makes no sense for that was sith eternal stuff in secret and she looks to be strolling around kamino. Would have to be created while he was chancellor, just doesn’t make sense to me. She has New Zealand accent living on kamino and knows who a secret force is. I think jango clone seems more likely or something all together different.
