In this Star Wars news update, we look at a big tease for an intense Episode 7 of the Bad Batch. Dee Bradley Baker spoke about what we can expect next week and it’s believed Wrecker’s headache is going to lead to a dark fate. As Star Wars fans, we’re all anticipating what’s next for Omega and the rest of Clone Force 99 as they fled from Kamino and are now on the run from Fennec Shand who will also appear in the Book of Boba Fett, Tarkin, Rampart, the Empire, the Kaminoans and maybe even other bounty hunters. We also discuss who the hologram figure at the end of Decommissioned was who Rafa and Trace – the Martez sisters from the Clone Wars Season 7 were speaking to. It also begs the question of whether Ahsoka Tano will show up. Could the figure be Captain Rex? Darth Maul? Maybe even Bail Organa, Quinlan Vos, Mace Windu or another surviving Jedi of Order 66 – the possibilities are seemingly endless.
I also talk about War of the Bounty Hunters which brought back Qi’ra of Crimson Dawn that we saw in Solo: A Star Wars Story. I talk about Boba Fett’s journey with Han Solo from Cloud City to Jabba’s Palace and how this sets up the reason he wanted revenge on Bib Fortuna later in the timeline in the Mandalorian Season 2 finale. We’ll get much more context in the Book of Boba Fett and Qi’ra’s return makes some fans think Solo 2 might be happening! Boba Fett helped Pedro Pascal’s Din Djarin rescue Baby Yoda – Grogu and now he is with Fennec on their own mission on Tatooine. The Bad Batch is one of three shows this year and next year, we have Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Mandalorian Season 3, Star Wars Ahsoka, and Andor as announced by Kathleen Kennedy last year. Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau are leading the Star Wars franchise in an amazing new direction!
