The upcoming Star Wars animated series, Star Wars: The Bad Batch, is set to release on May 4, which is famously known as Star Wars Day. The series focuses on a group of five clones called Clone Force 99, who were created to serve the nascent Empire. Each of them was created with a specific skill, but they are also rebellious, which made them enemies of the state. All of the clones including Hunter, Echo, Tech, Wrecker, and Crosshair will be voiced by Dee Bradley Baker.
Star Wars: The Bad Batch is helmed by several Star Wars veterans such as executive producers Athena Portillo, Dave Filoni, Jennifer Corbett, Brad Rau, Carrie Beck, and producer Josh Rimes. Corbett is the head writer and Rau is the supervising director on the series. The duo has previously worked on Star Wars Resistance — a 3D animated series set shortly before and during the latest Star Wars movie trilogy.
