Disney+ and Lucasfilm have scheduled a new animated series Star Wars: The Bad Batch.

Star Wars universe veteran Dave Filoni will return as an EP for Bad Batch. Other stars include Clone Wars' Athena Portillo, and Star Wars Rebels Brad Rau. Carrie Beck will serve as co-executive producer and Jennifer Corbett will be the head writer.

The series follows the experimental clones of the Bad Batch (introduced first in The Clone Wars) as they find their way through a rapidly changing galaxy during the aftermath of the Clone War. The members of Bad Batch include a special squad of clones who differ from their fellow soldiers in the Clone Army. Each clone possesses a singular special skill, causing them to be extremely effective soldiers. In the post-Clone War era, these soldiers will take on dangerous missions as they struggle to stay together in a changing universe.

Agnes Chu, senior Vice President of content at Disney+ had praises to sing about the new addition to the Star Wars franchise.

"Giving new and existing fans the final chapter of 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' has been our honor at Disney+, and we are overjoyed by the global response to this landmark series. While the Clone Wars may have come to its conclusion, our partnership with the groundbreaking storytellers and artists at Lucasfilm Animation is only beginning. We are thrilled to bring Dave Filoni's vision to life through the next adventures of the Bad Batch."

Star Wars: The Bad Batch will be available for streaming on Disney+ in 2021.
