Star Wars: The Bad Batch’: New trailer and information on season 2

Looks like one of the most famous clone troopers in Star Wars will finally make his onscreen return in The Bad Batch.

After months without any news, it was finally announced at this year’s Celebration that season 2 of Star Wars: The Bad Batch will be coming this fall to Disney+. No specific release date was given, but considering that we also have Tales of the Jedi coming around the same time, fans of animated Star Wars content have plenty to be excited about in the coming months.

A fantastic-looking trailer for the second season was also released online. It’s not the same trailer that the celebration attendees saw (which we’ll get to in a bit), but there was still a lot to take in.

Listen to the latest episode of the AIPT Television podcast!

As you can see, the Bad Batch appears to be smack dab in the middle of the Empire’s transition into a ubiquitous dictatorship across the entire galaxy. This process will definitely involve some scenes with Palpatine and clone commandos training the new stormtroopers.

At the 0:32 mark, we see what looks to be another appearance of former Delta Squad member Scorch in the series.

At 0:45, we get a look at former Wookie Jedi youngling Gungi, who looks significantly older and ready to throw down.

The Bad Batch’s slightly updated outfits are nice, but it’s so great to see Omega FINALLY getting some armor of her own.

The really big news, however, comes at the 0:44 mark. We see a clone with a very distinctive scar on the left side of his head. His armor may be different, but that’s definitely Commander Cody.

Lest you think this is wishful thinking on my part, the longer trailer attendees got to see include Cody and Crosshair meeting with each other. Cody expresses concern over how the Empire is changing the galaxy while Crosshair responds with the familiar “Good soldiers follow orders” refrain (despite not having an inhibitor chip anymore).

Cody’s involvement in season 2 was further confirmed by Sabina Graves at Gizmodo, who shared that she and the Celebration crowd also got to see a brief clip from the season 2 premiere. Nothing big was revealed, but it did feature the Bad Batch fighting giant crab monsters, which sounds all types of awesome.

So the question remains if Cody will end up being a friend or foe to the Bad Batch — and what the heck has he been up to since attempting to kill Obi-Wan on Utapau during the Clone Wars?

Luckily, we only have a few months to wait before answers are explored via everyone’s favorite underrated Star Wars series.
