From Commander Cody to Captain Rex, here’s every Star Wars cameo character in the official trailer for Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 2.
A new Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 2 trailer has been released, and it features some familiar faces fighting alongside Clone Force 99. A spiritual successor to Star Wars: The Clone Wars, The Bad Batch took the concept of Clone Force 99 and expanded it into a full series after Disney+’s Clone Wars revival restored the “Bad Batch lost episode.” Audiences got to spend a four-part arc with the Bad Batch in The Clone Wars season 7, which set up the unique clones to have a key role in the Star Wars universe. Now, Clone Force 99 returns for The Bad Batch season 2 on January 4, 2023.
Similar to other Disney+ Star Wars shows, The Bad Batch season 1 had several cameos to either expand or flesh out the universe. Star Wars legend Rex, The Mandalorian’s Fennec Shand, Star Wars Rebels’ Hera Syndulla, and The Clone Wars season 7’s Trace and Rafa are some examples. With Kamino destroyed and Palpatine’s Empire now solidified, Clone Force 99 will have to risk their lives in missions across the galaxy as suggested by The Bad Batch season 2’s trailer, which opens the doors for even more Star Wars cameos. Except for the show’s main cast, here’s every Star Wars character in The Bad Batch season 2’s trailer.
While many assumed Commander Cody would appear in Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 1 considering how important Cody was both in Clone Wars and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, that did not happen. However, one of the most famous Star Wars clones now returns to the franchise as Cody will appear in season 2. The official The Bad Batch season 2 trailer shows Cody in two moments, first without his helmet and later with the helmet on. As already established in Star Wars canon, Cody remained loyal to the Empire after Order 66, although The Bad Batch can now better explore the character.
Yes, that was a Wookie Jedi in the Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 2 trailer. Gungi first appeared in the Clone Wars episode “The Gathering,” which began an arc focused on a group of Jedi younglings getting into adventures with the help of Ahsoka Tano. Gungi’s status in Star Wars canon following Order 66 was a mystery until the first The Bad Batch season 2 trailer confirmed that he was alive. Gungi in The Bad Batch season 2 is yet another addition to the already long list of Jedi who survived Order 66. Gungi will also probably be the first Jedi character to show up in The Bad Batch.
Palpatine’s Revenge of the Sith speech was in Star Wars: The Bad Batch season 1, which opened right as he took over the galaxy. However, nothing else was shown of the Emperor in that first season. Now, both The Bad Batch season 2 trailers have confirmed that Palpatine will appear in the show. The Bad Batch season 2 will revisit not only the streets of Coruscant but also the Imperial Senate, and it seems like Palpatine wants the clones dead. Given how close to the events of Order 66 The Bad Batch season 1 took place, it will be interesting to see Palpatine in the early days of the Empire.
A powerful ally of the Rebel Alliance, Bail Organa has been behind rebellions against the Empire since the time of Revenge of the Sith. Now, it seems Bail Organa will help Clone Force 99 with something in Coruscant. Bail Organa eventually takes a more proactive role in the Rebellion as seen in Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but at first, he acts as a behind-the-scenes ally as recently seen in Obi-Wan Kenobi and Tales of the Jedi. A connection between the Bad Batch and Bail Organa can be the first step for Hunter and his friends to join a more organized fight against the Empire.
