It’s Star Wars Day! And Disney has released the series premiere of The Bad Batch to celebrate it. We all know that Star Wars: The Bad Batch has been one of the most highly anticipated Disney+ series and it’s finally here.
This animated show is all set to focus on the Clone Force 99 who were first introduced in the final season of The Clone Wars. Since the animated Star Wars corner is so acclaimed, so expectations for this show has been sky-high. Thankfully it looks like the show is winning overall fans.
So let us recap the premiere a little and then check out the social media response:
The series premiere, episode- 1×01 titled “Aftermath” shows us all the events of the infamous Order 66 from the point of view of The Bad Batch. Now they aren’t that affected by the Order, especially when compared to the other regular clones.
Apart from this, the premiere showed us a different retelling of Jedi Padawan Caleb Dume’s origin story. Viewers will surely know him better from Star Wars Rebels as Kanan Jarrus.
At the end of the 70 min premiere episode, we see that the group has adopted Omega, a young fan and have really gone rogue. But of course, they haven’t been able to go rogue in peace. There’s Admiral Tarkin tailing them. Overall, it was a solid premiere and pretty much gave fans everything which they wanted.
Social media has been full of people praising the premiere of the show. So let us check out some of the reactions to The Bad Batch:
#TheBadBatch was amazing, really great start! It's good to meet our clones again, I missed them (though I didn't miss that order…) Wrecker's probably my fav ngl 😂 Other than that, awesome visuals and storytelling, I can't wait to see where this is going 🥰 #MayThe4thBeWithYou pic.twitter.com/UotQwKwUFw

I was a huge #TheCloneWars fan and wasn’t sure if I was going to like #TheBadBatch because it was a spin-off of a show that ended so perfectly. I gotta say, 30 minutes in and I’m loving it. They are taking the show in unexplored areas of the timeline, and the characters are great

It’s not surprising to see so much positivity going around for Wrecker, Kanan, and Omega, as they were great parts of the episode. Also, Lee Bradley deserves all the praise for voicing a large chunk of the characters all by himself. A lot of people had reservations about The Bad Batch so the first episode being so great has helped assauge everyone’s fear and brought people onboard for the rest of the show. Thankfully we don’t have to wait a long time to get another episode.
So check out season 1 episode 1 of The Bad Batch On Disney+ now and prepare for new episodes on Friday! May The Fourth Be With You!
