Disney has already confirmed that we are getting a second season of Star Wars: The Bad Batch in 2022. However, that doesn’t seem to be the only plan for Clone Force 99. It now looks like the house of mouse wants the group to show up in the live-action MandoVerse.
Live-Action Bad Batch In Plans?
The finale of Dave Filoni’s sequel to The Clone Wars revolved around Kamino’s destruction. The episode also had subtle references to The Mandalorian and especially Grogu.
After all, it was revealed that the geneticist from Kamino hired by the Empire will continue working in the secret facility. This is the same place where other people wear the same lab uniform as Dr. Pershing.
Viewers of The Mandalorian will remember that it was the scientist who was directed by Moff Gideon to run tests on Grogu. Now, the rumor mill is churning with news that Lucasfilm is trying to bring the Bad Batch into live-action.
But not in just any live-action Star Wars project. The company wants the Bad Batch to show up in the Mandoverse. However, it’s not clear whether we will see Hunter and his team in The Mandalorian next or other upcoming live-action series like Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka.
Could Temuera Morrison Make A Return?
Reports say that the company is planning on a crossover, so maybe the Bad Batch can show up then. Also, if the company is indeed planning on the group making its live-action debut, then Temuera Morrison who has been the visible face of the clones since Attack of the Clones was released, could play them.
Although we do think that he will need some help from the makeup artists, until and unless it’s like a cameo appearance. Currently, Morrison is busy working on Boba Fett. So he could turn up as the other clones in the Mandoverse. But will it happen? As always, it’s a wait-and-watch game.
