    Star Wars: The Bad Batch sets May premiere date at Disney+!
    After unveiling the Clone Wars spin-off series at December's
    Disney Investor Day, Disney+ has announced that Star Wars:
    The Bad Batch is set to premiere on the streaming service on
    May 4, better known to fans as Star Wars Day! In addition to
    the series premiere, the second episode will air on May 7
    and follow a weekly Friday release schedule.

    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.

    "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," 
    Agnes Chu, senior vice president, Content, Disney+, previously
    said in a statement. "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 is executive produced by Dave Filoni
    (The Mandalorian, Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Athena Portillo
    (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), Brad Rau (Star
    Wars Rebels, Star Wars Resistance) and Jennifer Corbett (Star
    Wars Resistance, NCIS) with Carrie Beck (The Mandalorian, Star
    Wars Rebels) as co-executive producer and Josh Rimes as
    producer (Star Wars Resistance). Rau is also serving as
    supervising director with Corbett as head writer.
