The Bad Batch Season 3 is the last of George Lucas’ input into Star Wars, says star

Less than a week until the return of Clone Force 99 in Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 3 and I’m genuinely very excited to see what happens next as the show speeds towards its last chapter.

Now, one of the show’s stars Dee Bradley Baker – actually, as the voice of the Clones and, in particular the Bad Batch themselves, he’s THEE star – reveals that the show represents the end of George Lucas’ input to Star Wars.

Asked about voicing all the Clones in the series as individual characters, despite them all being genetically the same, Baker revealed that before Disney took control of Star Wars, this was on of Uncle George’s final inputs to Star Wars: “That actually tracks back to the original idea that George Lucas came up with because this is sort of the end of George Lucas’ legacy is the Bad Batch – he came up with that idea, and it was part of the original Clone Wars series that he made with Dave Filoni – The dynamic that he and the writers came up with was very clear – so that they feel so different, that it was actually easy for me – easier for me – than keeping the clones distinct because they all feel like such different people to me.”

In Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, we never got to know the clones and they were as indistinct as the Stormtroopers in the original trilogy but Lucas decided when he and Filoni sat down and fleshed out the Clone Wars series, that he wanted the Clones to be more than production line soldiers, he wanted them to be people, characters, and it’s why we now love so many Clones such as Rex, Cody, Echo, Fives and, of course, Clone Force 99.

I’m hearing great things about this season of The Bad Batch and, if it really is where Lucas’ input ends, then it’s only appropriate that it be great.

See you all on Wednesday, guys.

After The Bad Batch Season 3 hits on February 21st, the next Star Wars project is The Acolyte, which goes back to the High Republic era and that’s due this summer on Disney+

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
