A new trailer just dropped for The Bad Batch, the Star Wars: The Clone Wars spin-off series about a group of clones with special abilities. The series will follow the squad in the aftermath of the events of The Clone Wars, leading to them becoming enemies of the Empire and Grand Moff Tarkin. They also want to make sure we know that this series is part of the larger canon that is being established by The Mandalorian and other Disney+ series. The new trailer heavily features an appearance by Ming-Na Wen’s Fennec Shand. The first episode is set to drop on May 40 at an expanded length of 70 minutes. After that, new episodes will drop every Friday.
