Bad Batch Important Takeaways
Star Wars fans who have kept up with comics or other animated projects, such as Star Wars Rebels, might have recognized that the intro storyline was focused on none other than Caleb Dume, better known as Kanan Jarrus. The Bad Batch changed Kanan’s story a bit from what we read in the comic counterpart, but the meat of it is still there.
Kanan loses his Jedi Master due to Order 66 and manages to escape, going through hardships until he assembles his own group of Rebels.
The Bad Batch sets up Clone Force 99 to deal with the ramifications of Order 66. But what does a group of “defective” clones do when they don’t follow orders? The premiere does a great job at setting up the problem of the whole series and makes it easy for fans to follow the group’s journey.
In addition, a clear connection with the rebellion has been established, as Saw Gerrera is back, doing what he does best — being an insurgent. It’ll be interesting to see what other additions are made to the lore down the line.
