Well, Star Wars has officially done it. They have created characters that I don’t like and they’re called The Bad Batch; a squad of defective clones with their own sets of special skills, personalities, and names that just irk the crap out of me. Yesterday the trailer for their animated series on Disney+ came out and I wasn’t impressed. Here it is.
I’m just not a fan.
I like seeing Rex, Fennec Shand, and Saw Gerrera in this show but now it feels like the cameos are just becoming a bit too obvious and forced these days. I understand that these stories continue to reside in the same storyline but it feels like Filoni may be grasping at straws to make us want to see this show rather than just allowing the show to breathe and introduce us to new characters.
Plus, the point of an awesome cameo is to not let us know these characters are going to be in the show so that we can stay surprised. But here’s the plot twist, right?
Somewhere toward the end of the series we’re going to be getting some Ahsoka, Darth Vader, and maybe even Palpatine cameos, right? That doesn’t mean I’m all of a sudden going to like this show.
Despite all of this griping, I will still be sitting down and watching this show on May 4 and beyond but my excitement level for a show is at an all-time low.
What do you think? Are you excited for The Bad Batch? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a tremendous day. May the Force be with you.
