Disney +’s upcoming Star Wars animated series Star Wars: The Bad Batch will reportedly bring back a fan-favorite character from previous Star Wars comics – and more recently live-action comics. Cinelinx reports have learned that Star Wars: The Bad Batch will feature the return of Bo-Katan Kryze, the Mandalorian leader who recently debuted in live action in Mandalorianen. Katee Sackhoff plays Bo-Katan both as her voice actress and live-action actress. Star Wars: The Bad Batch allegedly occurs after the events of the “siege of Mandalore”, meaning that Bo-Katan’s appearance will fill the gap left between that time and her resurrection in Star Wars rebels.
If the rumor is true, it will give Sackhoff her wish. She recently said she would very much like to explore more of Bo-Katan̵
“I love the character Sabine,” Sackhoff said, referring to the Mandaloric character from Star Wars Rebels. “I would also love to see how Bo-Katan’s life was with Satine, her sister, and lose her sister as she did. Her life with Obi-Wan and stuff like that, I would love to know what happened to it, and how it affected Bo-Katan as a leader. “
According to Disney, Star Wars: The Bad Batch follows elite and experimental clones of Bad Batch (first introduced in The Clone Wars) as they find their way into a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone Wars. Members of Bad Batch – a unique group of clones that are genetically different from their brothers in the clone army – each have a unique exceptional skill that makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew. In the era after the Clone Wars, they will undertake daring mercenary missions as they struggle to stay afloat and find a new purpose. “
Agnes Chu, senior vice president of content at Disney +, said of the series “Giving new and existing fans the final chapter of Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been our honor at Disney + and we are very pleased with the global response to this milestone series. While Clone Wars may have come to its conclusion, our partnership with the groundbreaking storytellers and artists at Lucasfilm Animation has only just begun. We are excited to bring Dave Filoni’s vision to life through the next adventures in Bad Batch. “
