Hunter, Crosshair, Wrecker, Tech and Echo are the names of five soldiers. However, they have a particularity, they are clones. Thereby, they make up the elite unit known as the “Bad Batch”. They are genetically modified and possess less conventional combat techniques. Understand by this, that they are not in the finesse. Other specifics set them apart from most clones, their personalities and appearances are unique. These differences also make them much less submissive than their (almost) similar, which will lead them to mutiny against the Intergalactic Empire. During the various episodes, the viewer follows them through their various mercenary missions and their inexorable escape.
The film takes place just after the Clone Wars and the rise of the Empire. In the timeline of the saga, it is set some time after the end of the third film, Revenge of the Sith. The elements depicted in the series take place several years before the fourth episode. Thus, you will just need to have seen the first three films if you want to grasp all the subtleties of the series. Incidentally, the idea for the Bad Batch unit comes straight from the mind of George Lucas, the original creator of the Star Wars universe. Through this new work, he wanted to explore more in depth the individuality of certain clones, observable in other titles of the franchise until then.
