Tomorrow is the day!! The Bad Batch premieres on Disney+ in celebration of May the 4th, dropping with a 70-minute mini-movie to launch the newest show from Lucasfilm Animation.
We were introduced to this squad of elite clones in the seventh season of The Clone Wars, as the squad consists of Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, and Crosshair, and were then joined by Echo.

The Bad Batch is the latest show from Lucasfilm Animation, exploring this squad of clones in a rapidly changing galaxy in the post-Order 66 world, as the Republic is reorganized into the Galactic Empire.

Everything the department has done so far has been fantastic, and I expect nothing less from this one!
