The Official Star Wars Site
has announced that we will see more of the unfinished Star Wars: The Clone Wars
series! See the return of Echo in these previously unreleased episodes!
In a special March 2014 StarWars.com blog post celebrating the Netflix release of
Star Wars: The Clone Wars – The Lost Missions, series supervising
director Dave Filoni thanked fans for their continued support, and shared his
own sketches and concept art. He ended his post with one teaser image and note,
addressing one of the show’s unanswered questions: “Yes, Echo is alive.”
Finally, fans of the clone trooper will find out how and why.
StarWars.com is thrilled to announce that a previously unreleased
four-episode story reel, “Bad Batch,” telling the story of how Captain Rex and
company rescued Echo, will screen exclusively at Star Wars Celebration
in Anaheim. The unfinished episodes (similar to the Utapau arc that appeared
on StarWars.com) feature complete, final voice performances, specifically by Dee
Bradley Baker, who voices the elite clones of “Bad Batch” group.
The screening will take place at the Digital Stage on Friday, April 17, at
noon. A Q&A with Filoni, Baker, and writers Brent Friedman and Matt
Michnovetz will follow. So mark your calendars, and prepare to welcome back one
of the clone army’s greatest warriors!
I can't wait for those of us that can't attend Star Wars Celebration to be
able to see these great new stories. Patience we must have.
