The future of animated Star Wars is bright. At Star Wars Celebration 2022, it was revealed that Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi would be an all new anthology series that delves into various stories of the Jedi that populate the Star Wars Universe. In some leaked footage below we saw the new animated series would feature a young Count Dooku, Ahsoka Tano, and a young Yoda.
Today it was revealed that Star Wars The Bad Batch is returning for a second season on Disney+.
The animated series’ second season will arrive sometime this fall.
The second season appears to take place after a slight time jump, as some of the characters appear a little older in this trailer. Another key difference seems to be in the squad’s armor, which includes slightly new designs and colors, suggesting they got a bit of a wardrobe update after the first season.
The Bad Batch stars Dee Bradley Baker, who reprises his role as most of the clones, as well as Michelle Ang, a female clone in the squad. The series is created by Dave Filoni and developed by Filoni and Jennifer Corbett, who also writes for the show.
Another animated Star Wars show getting a second season is Star Wars Visions.
It was announced during Star Wars Celebration 2022 that Volume 2 of Visions will be available to stream on Disney+ in spring 2023. The second installment will showcase a variety of animation styles from all over the world, including those from South Africa, the United Kingdom, Chile, the United States, Spain, France, India and Japan. Each story not only boasted its own animation style but existed outside of the main Star Wars canon.
I was left a little underwhelmed by the first season of Visions, hopefully season two will focus less on anime.
Are you excited to see these shows return? Let us know in the comments.
