4 Episode "Bad Batch" Arc of Star Wars: The Clone Wars to be Screened at Star Wars Celebration
< >
Star Wars Celebration just keeps getting better. Not only is it almost certain that the first full trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will premiere at the event's opening day, but we've now also learnt that fans attending the event will get to see 4 never before seen episodes of the beloved animated show, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

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," reads the announcement. "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.

Dave Filoni, the supervising director on The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels will be joined by writer Matt Michnovetz, and voice of The Clone Wars' clones, Dee Bradley Baker, for a special Q&A after the screening.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars first came to our screens back in 2008 and soon became a favorite with Star Wars fans of all ages. But when the Disney purchase of LucasFilm was completed, the hit show was one of the biggest casualties, getting cancelled after 5 seasons without a satisfactory ending. After much fan lobbying, it was announced last year that 13 episodes entitled 'The Lost Missions' would be airing on Netflix. But despite these bonus episodes, fans still felt they deserved a proper ending. The Bad Batch episodes won't satisfy the need for closure, but they will certainly satisfy the craving for another fix of the Clone Wars. Such is the popularity of this show, it's conceivable that this screening of unfinished episodes could draw one of the biggest crowds of the weekend.

Star War Celebration runs from April 16-19th at the Anaheim Convention Center. The Bad Batch screening will be held in the Arena at midday on Friday 17th April.
