The newest Star Wars animated series will be coming to Disney+ on May 4th (get it May the 4th) and had a great line-up to get use ready for the premiere. Take a look at what to watch- and then get started.


The Bad Batch

In order to get ready for the new release, start by watching shows such as “A Distant Echo”, “On Wings of Keeradaks” and “Unfinished Business”. These will give you a good basic understanding of elite clones and will introduce you to Wrecker, Hunter, Crosshair, and Tech.

To dig a little deeper in to Clones that are the inspiration for Bad Batch, you will want to watch Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Although you could watch all of it, but with limited time prior to May 4th had some specific episodes:

“Clone Cadets”, “Rookies”, “ARC Troopers”, “The Citadel”, and “Counterattack” are the main episodes recommended to help you get to know these Clones better.


Finally, if you are looking for a even deeper look, consider watching Chapter 5: The Gunslinger of The Mandalorian as well as “A War on Two Fronts,” “Front Runners,” “The Soft War,”and “Tipping Points” of Clone Wars Season 5.

Now you are ready to suit up and watch Star Wars: The Bad Batch on May 4th.


About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
