The Bad Batch was a pretty OK cartoon. When it was good, it was good. When it was mediocre, it was really mediocre. But it’s ultimately more Star Wars content, and that’s always fun. I like Star Wars. You like Star Wars. Let the people make their cartoons.
The biggest surprise in the new trailer is the return of Gungi, the wookiee Jedi! He was in an episode or two of The Clone Wars and is notable for having a badass wooden lightsaber. So I guess we have yet another Jedi who survived Order 66. That’s fine, especially if it’s Gungi. He’s a cool dude, and more power to him. Gungi and Omega should make for a fun pairing.
The Bad Batch returns to Disney+ on Jan. 4.
