News culture Star Wars the Bad Batch: who is the new Disney + series for?
One year after The Clone Wars ended and on the occasion of Force Day, Disney + is launching its new Star Wars animated series online. Your name The bad batch. She follows a group of clones who decide not to obey Order 66, an order calling for all Republic forces to eliminate the Jedi.
A qui s’address Star Wars: The Bad Batch?
You could say that The clone wars have been largely overflown in recent years (through comics, series, games …), and that’s a good thing, because it’s not really the theme of The Bad Batch, whose pilot, 1h15 long, transports us to the moment when the Sith reveal their true plan .
You can also tell you right away: This long introductory pilot is particularly effective and if you enjoyed the later seasons of The Clone Wars, then you should enjoy the exercise. We find the characteristic humor of the Disney cartoon series, it has to be said that it is the same team but to all of that there is a much darker side.
An accessible series?
The events of Star Wars: The Bad Batch takes place right after Order 66. A moment when the scenario turns out to be more serious and with a more serious overall tone. L.‘Order 66 has never been featured in any Star Wars movies or seriesalthough it is one of the most important orders. Indeed, it is the one who brings the Galactic Empire into being. In contrast to Revenge of the Sith, where we saw the Jedi Order wiped out, It is rather its effects that are brought to the screen here, all on the side of rogue clones (or resistant, it’s up to you). And that’s of interest to the fans without putting the uninitiated aside. The idea is to see the creation of the Empire, or more generally at the end of the Republic, as it was at the end of Episode 3.
Without saying that the Bad Batch series can stand on its own, The pilot is built to explain the little subtleties of the Star Wars saga. Of course, if you don’t appreciate the principles of violence, the Sith, and the Empire, you might as well say that this new animated series is not for you. But what works In this subtle way, the authors manage to bring together the most complex elements of the franchise
From this point of view, for example, it is interesting to see that the renegade clones are not participating in Order 66 due to a programming problem, while some members of the group choose to take this into account and others do not mention it. Which gives relevant sequences in the service of morality and vice versa. However, the scenario focuses solely on the fate of these strange clones, and features notable appearances from cult characters from the franchise without messing up the “apart” aspect of the series.
Which animation level?
We saw him doing The Clone Wars during his time from Cartoon Network to Disney. The animation has taken a much more spectacular turn. For The Bad Batch, Lucasfilm put the little dishes in the big ones, and those who appreciated the changes made last season of The Clone Wars will appreciate what they will see in this new story even more. In addition to the characters cartoony pages, various decorations, even impressive and above all an honestly realistic presentation.
If we can undoubtedly bet that a lot of money has been put on the table for the pilot because of its duration, this is a safe bet Undoubtedly, Disney has given the green light to an animated series of a certain magnitude, given its place in the world of the famous franchise.
Whether you are a child, a teenager or an adult, Star Wars: The Bad Batch is easy to enjoy. If you are a fan it is even better, but if you are not then it is worth trying the test for all of the qualities mentioned so far. You have been warned.
Star Wars: The Bad Batch, on Disney + since May 4th, an episode every Friday.
