Star Wars: The Bad Patch, a galaxy from Lucasfilm’s next animated series, premieres on Disney + and Disney + Hotstar on Star Wars Day – May 4, “May Fourth”. Clone Wars Spin-Off is named after the war and follows Clone Force 99, a group of elite clone troops, each of which has genetic mutations that give them unique abilities. Bad Patch comes from Star Wars veteran Dave Pilloni, who previously worked on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, has created Star Wars rebels and Star Wars opposition, and is now the co-creator of the Star Wars cinema universe with John Pauro as the Montessori creator.
“We think of The Bad Patch as the spiritual heir of The Clone Wars,” Brad Rao, supervising director of The Bad Patch, told reporters about Zoom. “It simply came to our notice then. As we begin our first episode, we take a brief, timely backup of what we saw at the end of Clone Wars. This is something Dave Filoni wanted us to do. It is very exciting to see how things like Order 66 are coming. Having these characters that we know only a little from the finale of The Clone Wars gives us an opportunity to continue the legacy and storytelling of Clone Wars, but through the eyes of new characters. ”
In the Star Wars galaxy, Order 66 is the mastermind by Sid Lord Dart Cidius – known as Emperor Balpatine – who saw biogas plants in the brains of all the clone troops stationed by the Republic to change behavior. With the flick of a switch, Order 66 is activated. It called all the Jedi traitors and their own clone troopers turned on them, assassinating the Jedi order in the process. Star Wars: Bad Patch starts almost simultaneously and now the named group is seen operating for the newly arrived Empire, along with all the other mutated non-clones.
From Toofan to The Bad Patch, what to see in May
“This is one of the most exciting things for us to immerse ourselves in this series,” said Jennifer Corbett, editor-in-chief of The Bad Patch. “When you talk about the end of Clone Wars, it’s really not just about Clone Force 99, but also about clones in general. What the galaxy looks like, because everyone’s not familiar with the original trilogy and the Star Wars rebels, it was at the peak of its dominance over the galaxy.
“It simply came to our notice then. [The Bad Batch shows] What happens to the galaxy immediately after the war is over. How some planets and systems rejoice when the war is over, which is why they accept the empire. Others make the empire a little tired, what their rule really means. As for Bad Speech, it was fun to explore their feelings because, with the Republicans, they were given a lot of freedom. But with the Empire. They run things a little differently, and we want to show for sure how the module reacts to it. ”
“Bad Patch is an interesting sight again because they are not‘ Rex ’,” Rao added, referring to the regular clone troops as Rex. “Even the way they treat their brothers. In this growing empire we deal with how they are now on the opposite side. Rex is suddenly the enemy’s face, as we see inside [Star Wars: Episode III –] Siddhant’s revenge. “
Thanks to its layout and animation style, The Bad Patch is like The Clone Wars. But it’s not just a similar Star Wars series. There are elite warriors (s) wearing leading helmets in bad speech. Hunter (De Bradley Baker), the unofficial leader of Bad Speech, ends up in the care of a young woman named Omega (voiced by Michael Ang). In the early episodes – I’ve seen two – Hunter has trouble caring for Omega, and tries to transport her to a family because he hopes to have a safe life with them. It all looks like the current Star Wars The Montessori hit.
“I think combining all of these shows is the idea of change,” Corbett said of the similarities when asked. “I see similarities with The Montalorian in terms of how he accepts this new role. What the volume does. Now that everything has changed, they are questioning where they fit in and where they are coming from. If the war is over, what is their purpose now if they are not soldiers?”

“When you add a baby to that mix, these elite athletes who suddenly become accustomed to tackling any task are completely out of the water on how to raise and protect a baby. At least with Omega, she’s aged, she’s her own person. [as opposed to Grogu/ Baby Yoda]. I think the dynamic between them is very interesting because she is so different in how she was raised as opposed to how she was raised. ”
Rao considers the similarities to the fact that almost all Star Wars are about family. “Some of these similarities may feel common [here] Or at least they start to get more common, ”Rao added. “Whether you’re talking about a young woman like we’ve been on our show, or something else around it, how a family works together as a military unit, but rather, look at each other – [those] The most important themes in this show. ”
Star Wars: The Bad Patch The Montorion – shares a character with Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen), an elite mercenary who was introduced during his first season visit to Manto Tattoo. Shand seems to have been killed in that episode, but in The Montalorian Season 2 he gave an amazing return, revealing that Boba Fed saved himself. Shut later helped take over Fed Hut Palace – which founded The Book of Boba Fed Spin-Off series, which included her. Since Montalorian takes place after the fall of the Empire, The Bad Patch will have a much younger chant.
The Bad Speech has at least two relationships with the big Star Wars cinema universe. Protestant Cha Gerra (voiced by Andrew Kishino), introduced in The Clone Wars and later starred in Forest Whitaker Rock One: A Star Wars Story. Since he has not yet risen to the famous role of the original Peter Cushing in 1977, The Bad Batch has Death Star Commander Grant Moffurkin – or rather Admiral Turkin (voiced by Stephen Stanton). Star Wars The movie.
The Bad Patch, Out of Love and more on Disney + Hotstar in May
“One of the things we’r trying to do is keep the show Star Wars at its core, which is what Dave Filoni has always taught us and put pressure on us,” Corbett said. “As for the characters we want to see, it’s very tempting to use everyone because we’re all fans of Star Wars. So we like to play with those toys. But since it’s a particular galaxy, it’s a balancing act between introducing everyone to new characters and why we use some. So we don’t want it to be trivial, we want to explore the perspectives and perspectives of others. “
Rao added: “When we get a chance to get a character that fits in this story, it means we’re leaving. Talking about it is so much fun, it brings it to life. So much effort was technically expended to respect the legacy of any character we know. It’s not just a casting perspective, it’s the musical notes we use, the way it’s animated, the lighting, the way it all comes together. But we make sure that someone who doesn’t know who that character is can still follow. But if you know who it is, you can cry, you can laugh, maybe both. ”
Star Wars: The Bad Patch airs May 4 on Disney + and Disney + Hotstar. This is the introduction with a 70 minute special episode. New episodes air after that on Friday.
