Star Wars: Bad Batch Season 2 Will Answer Potential Mandalorian Connections, Executive Producer Bradlaugh Says The popular Disney+ animated series centers on Clone Force 99 (also known as Bad Batch), an elite army of clones created with select genetic enhancements.

How Bad Batch Season 2 Can Connect With The Mandalorian
Although Rau didn't reveal any details about the Mandalorian clone's connection to Star Wars: The Bad Batch Narratively, it's unlikely that these two storylines will crossover because they are so far apart in the Star Wars timeline. Star Wars: The Bad Batch features the fall of the Republic, mostly during the immediate aftermath of Order 66. However, The Mandalorian is set nearly 30 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.
However, since the young Force-sensitive Grogu, whom Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) swore to protect, is 50 years old, it is possible that the kid will appear in the animated series. Both The Bad Batch and The Mandalorian have clones at the center of their overarching narratives, and the film seems to be setting the scene for Emperor Palpatine in Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker. The inexplicable regression provides the reason. The scientist in the Star Wars: Bad Batch season 1 finale may have been part of the same Imperial unit that hired Dr. Pershing decades later.
As Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 2 delves into the backstory of the Empire's cloning efforts, it may enlighten and enrich The Mandalorian by giving viewers a better understanding of it basic knowledge. Since Dave Filoni produced both series, he undoubtedly connected the events of the animated show to the later live-action series. With Star Wars: The Bad Batch premiering on Disney+ on Jan. 4, and The Mandalorian returning for Season 3 later this year, viewers won't have to wait much longer to find out what's going on between the two hit shows contact.
