“Bounty Lost” Returns Plot Development To “The Bad Batch”

“Star Wars: The Bad Batch – Aftermath”

Disney + is continuing to experiment with the idea that you can never have too much “Star Wars”. It hasn’t been that long since season 2 of “The Mandalorian” ended, and now we have “The Bad Batch”. “The Bad Batch” serves as a mid-quel animated story, taking place between the events of “The Clone Wars” […]
