Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ anticipated final season is earning acclaim so far, and today we have a new clip teeing up the storyline of the next episode, The Bad Batch. It’s set to feature an experimental group of defective clones that Captain Rex has called upon in his quest to thwart the onslaught of the Republic.
Disney describes the episode’s storyline:
“It’s the end of the historic Clone Wars, as the forces of darkness have amassed great power in their bid to transform the Republic into the Galactic Empire. With the Republic on a losing streak, Captain Rex fears the Separatists are using stolen data to help predict the Grand Army’s every move.
As the threat of defeat looms, Rex teams up with experimental Clone Force 99, also known as the Bad Batch. Together, they embark on a high-risk mission behind enemy lines to uncover the truth behind the Separatist victories in “The Bad Batch,” an all-new episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars making its debut this Friday, February 21 on Disney+.”

The final season will comprise 12 episodes that will be available on Disney’s streaming service Disney Plus. Dave Filoni, the director and executive producer of Disney’s other acclaimed Star Wars property The Mandalorian, is at the helm.
