Before the Battle of Yavin, in the year 19 BBY, the events of Star Wars: The Bad Batch took place.


Clone Force 99 is also known as the "Bad Batch" in the animated television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which is set in the interim between Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. The members of Clone Force 99 are Tech, Hunter, Crosshair, Echo, and Wrecker. They have undergone significant genetic modifications, making them stronger and smarter than the average trooper.


During the Clone Wars, Clone Force 99 appears only a few times. On a given day, the clone troopers receive the order to "execute Order 66" as they carry out the fighting directives against Planet Kaller. This ought to make it more obvious how The Bad Batch fits into the overall timeline.


The Bad Batch occurs simultaneously with the end of the Clone Wars and right after Revenge of the Sith because it starts with Order 66. That indicates that it occurs prior to the Battle of Yavin, or around the year 19 BBY. Right at the conclusion of A New Hope, the Rebels defeated the Empire in the Battle of Yavin. This perfectly places "The Bad Batch" between the conclusion of the prequel trilogy and the start of the original trilogy.


What is Star Wars: The Bad Batch?


American animator Dave Filoni produced Star Wars: The Bad Batch for Disney+. Star Wars: The Bad Batch is both a prequel and a spin-off of The Clone Wars. Just before the two-part season premiere, the series' renewal was revealed.


Star Wars: The Bad Batch's first season debuted on May 4, 2021, and lasted for 16 episodes until August 13. Critics gave it favorable reviews. On January 4, 2023, the second season, which has 16 episodes total, made its debut and concluded on March 29.


All of the clone troopers from the previous Star Wars animated films are voiced again by Dee Bradley Baker. Ming-Na Wen, Stephen Stanton, Andrew Kishino, and Michelle Ang are also accompanying him.


The plot is as follows; in Star Wars: The Bad Batch, a group of elite clone troopers with genetic mutations first introduced in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, known as Clone Force 99 or the Bad Batch, undertakes perilous mercenary missions in the wake of the Clone Wars.


The majority of the Bad Batch, in contrast to the majority of the clone army, is able to withstand the effects of Order 66, which transformed their brethren into vicious and blindly obedient slaves of Emperor Palpatine. Grand Moff Tarkin starts phasing out the use of clones in favor of regular humans as recruits as a result, and they end up running from the Galactic Empire.

What ties Clone Wars to Bad Batch?


The Bad Batch takes place immediately after the Clone Wars, so it closely follows those events. The events that follow naturally occur after the introduction of the group of clone soldiers in The Clone Wars' final season.


Clone Force 99, a group of "defective" but distinctive clone soldiers, is the focus of the new Star Wars animated series. It follows them as the Galactic Empire under Emperor Palpatine seizes power after the Clone Wars. Watching the Clone Wars or any other related show is not required, in order to enjoy The Bad Batch.

What ties Order 66 to Bad Batch?


These mutated clone troopers were expected to follow a series of orders without question, and Order 66 is one of them. It designated all Jedi Order members as traitors to the republic and ordered their execution right away.


Order 66 is activated at the start of The Bad Batch, so it makes sense that the troop would obey the directive. However, it was clear from the "Bad Batch" trailer that the troop disobeyed Order 66. Despite having some free will and a strong belief in democracy and altruism, the clone troopers' main goal was to aid in the annihilation of their Jedi allies.

All of the clones received a brain implant when they were embryos that warned that when Order 66 would be activated, it would revoke their free will and force them to ruthlessly murder Jedi for the benefit of the Galactic Empire. However, it appears that there may have been a number of ways the Clone Force 99 members were able to maintain their free will.


Their bodies may have gone through a mutation that rendered them immune to all chip-dominated control. Or perhaps they took out the chips before Order 66 went into effect. Captain Rex might have informed the Bad Batch of the late ARC Trooper Fives' discovery of the chips. Given that they were rebels, they could have easily taken out the chips. While Echo was a prisoner of the Techno Union, it's possible that his chip was disabled or removed.
