We got our first glimpse at Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 2 on Sunday, with a trailer showing the further adventures of genetically enhanced clone troopers. The trailer for the Disney Plus show dropped during a panel discussion at the Star Wars Celebration Anaheim event.
Season 2 of the CGI animated series kicks off on Disney's streaming service this fall, the trailer revealed.
Sunday's trailer showed that Bad Batch member-turned-rival Crosshair will team up with Commander Cody (a clone who served under Obi-Wan Kenobi). In addition, the squad will encounter a Wookiee survivor of the largely extinct Jedi (this is presumably Gungi, who was a Padawan in The Clone Wars). And Omega will come face to face with Emperor Palpatine.
Panel attendees were treated to a scene from the first episode. Some time has passed since season 1, and Omega's looking a little older. Her hair has grown out. She has a new outfit. And the rest of the Batch have customized their armor to be more colorful.
The scene takes place on a tropical world, where our heroes are attacked by a bunch of giant crabs.
Star Wars Celebration is a convention solely devoted to a galaxy far, far away. It's been running since 1999, when it hyped up prequel trilogy opener The Phantom Menace. This year's gathering runs from May 26 to May 29 in Anaheim, California. It's the first Celebration since 2019 due to the pandemic.
