Animated series Star Wars: The Bad Batch will arrive in Australia in 2021

A new Star Wars series of any kind is a pretty big deal, certain to achieve a loyal following and a devoted fanbase.

Star Wars fans—particularly those who dug The Clone Wars—will be happy to know that Disney+ has ordered the next Lucasfilm animated series, titled Star Wars: The Bad Batch. It is scheduled to arrive in Australia on Disney+ in 2021.

In more welcome news for fans, it has already been suggested that The Bad Batch will “fix Star Wars canon in three crucial ways.”

Discussing the new series, Agnes Chu, senior vice president of content at Disney+, said: “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.”

Here is the official synopsis:

The series follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in “The Clone Wars”) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch – a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army — each possess a singular exceptional skill which makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew. In the post-Clone War era, they will take on daring mercenary missions as they struggle to stay afloat and find new purpose.
