What better way is there to kick off Star Wars Day than releasing an awesome new series? As a spinoff from the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars, we all hope to see some cameos from the hit show. Here are 5 of them!
- Ahsoka Tano
Ahsoka Tano was the glue that held The Clone Wars together. I mean, she was Anakin’s Padawan! She was also the first main character to leave the Jedi Order willingly and pave her own good path! Since she cared about the clones’ lives as men, not droids, she would be a great leader for the Bad Batch. Her journey was “different” just like Clone Force 99’s – just not in the genetics way.
- Ezra Bridger
This one is probably the most unlikely out of all the cameos, but worth mentioning. Caleb Dume and his master Depa Billaba had already played a big role in the first episode, so what should be next? His Padawan, of course! What is likely: the series ends off as the direct bridge to Rebels.
- Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader
Palpatine has issued Order 66 and Darth Vader is currently on Mustafar becoming 100% Sith. Is it improbable that he could at least make one appearance (even over hologram call)? Nope, not at all! He may even come to observe Clone Force 99’s actions through a probe or something, given that we already saw one Imperial probe in the first episode.
- Obi-Wan Kenobi
“Hello there!” Could you imagine Obi-Wan himself popping out of nowhere into The Bad Batch? Yes, the 2023 Obi-Wan Kenobi series will explain his adventures on Tatooine between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, but us Obi-Wan fans can’t wait for more of his witty humor. Right, guys?
- Captain Rex
Who doesn’t love Captain Rex? This is probably the most distinctly possible cameo to happen in The Bad Batch. After all, Rex is a clone who survived the Clone War – one of the last real clones (not defects) still standing – but he’s aging away in an old Republic walker. Wouldn’t it be nice to see his life before “retirement”? Who knows, maybe even Wolffe and Gregor will come into the story!
