May the Fourth be with you as Disney+ releases new Star Wars series

For some TV viewers, May 4th is a seemingly normal day. But for the fans of the Star Wars franchise, it’s a special day to be celebrated.

This year, Star Wars fans are in for a treat as Lucasfilm and The Walt Disney Company are releasing an all-new Star Wars animated series titled Star Wars: The Bad Batch.

The galaxy far, far away will continue to expand on Disney+ as Star Wars: The Bad Batch is the franchise’s second animated series, following Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

The series follows the elite and experimental troopers of Clone Force 99 (first introduced in Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War.

Members of Bad Batch, as they prefer to be called — a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army — each possess a singular exceptional skill, which makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew.

The first episode of Bad Batch will be available exclusively on Disney+, followed by fresh episodes every Friday starting on May 7, 2021.

The first season of the series will be 16 episodes long.
