A new animated Star Wars series focused on an elite group of clones will debut on Walt Disney Co’s (DIS.N) Disney+ streaming service in 2021, the company announced on Monday.
Called Star Wars: The Bad Batch, the series will follow the experimental clones in a rapidly changing galaxy following the end of the Clone War, the company said.
