Oh heck yes... I loved the Bad Batch episodes and more Clone Wars is a good thing!

Meh.

I don't think they need to do Clone Wars spin-off. Seems like we've already gotten enough of it. Also doesn't help that I find the clone troopers to be the least interesting aspect of the Clone Wars.

It feels like they want new Star Wars content out there, but the whole franchise is in such a state of flux that they're concentrating on an era that's already been explored and developed.

I mean, they were entertaining, I guess, but a whole series?

Honestly, if thereís one thing that is going to make me stop watching Star Wars altogether itís that they canít seem to break away from the Clone Wars time frame. I think theyíve milked one throwaway line from A New Hope as much as they possibly could.

Would rather see a sequel to Rebels than this, but I have a feeling that The Mandalorian’s second season might work as a pseudo-sequel.
Ah well, gotta be better than Resistance, right?

Maybe they're not exploring any other eras because they don't want what they do to be retconned out of existence or otherwise contradicted.

I'll check it out. Might be cool to see events from the Clone Wars from another perspective. I liked that part of the last 4 CW episodes.

I mean they already did seven seasons of The Clone Wars. Not really sure how much more there is to do with the Clones (I know it was about more characters than just the Clones but still). Iíd rather see something different personally.

Yea no where near stupid as that new trek lower deck bullshit. But my interest in this is zero, literally zero. And I'm not hater like most I just didn't find their story interesting at all. Not even a little. It's new Tano series or nothing for me, well till Mando S2

Iím more interested in this than I was previously. The Clone Wars has become one of my favorite Star Wars things ever.

This premieres on May 4th! Iím curious about the show. I havenít minded The Bad Batch characters on The Clone Wars, but Iím wondering how an entire series focused on them will be.

As an old school Star Wars fan, I feel like I would actually be excited for this if I'd had cable to see all the Star Wars cartoons over the last however many years. Yes, they're all on Disney+ now and I just don't have time to pick up a few more shows. Oh, well.
