Next Week Star Wars: The Bad Batch, Premieres on Disney+, Here’s what you need to know. Star Wars is known for its convoluted plot lines and heaps of characters, but you can enjoy this show without knowing all that. You might want a little history before you start though.The bad batch was an experimental group of clones that fought as an independent unit for the republic during the clone wars. The show takes place after the clone wars and picks up around the time that Revenge Of The Sith leaves off. The Republic has collapsed, and the war that the bad batch was created to fight is over. As the Republic transforms into the Galactic Empire, the Bad Batch must decide what their place will be in the new order. Will they join their brothers in the stormtrooper ranks? Or will they find their place in the galaxy somewhere out of the Empire‚Äôs reach? (Who are The Bad Batch Starwars.com)The show is one of many that Disney has created since its acquisition of Lucasfilm in 2012 filling in the gaps between Revenge of The Sith, and A New Hope, where our story started off in 1977. Disney has made Star Wars Rebels, Restience, Rogue One, Solo and the upcoming Obi Wan Kenobi series all set in this time period.
