Star Wars: Bad Batch

Seeming to confirm SOME of the Star Wars rumors we have been talking about, Disney has announced that their next animated Star Wars series will be the spin off from Rebels, though the rumors say that the continuation series is further along in development. This series will focus on the unique group of clones deemed the “Bad Batch” as they try to find their new way in a post Clone Wars universe. Taking mercenary jobs and whatnot.

Peacock

Currently no deal with Amazon or Roku, which is one of the reasons HBO Max was so widely panned at launch. Though it sounds like the streamer IS still working out the possibility of such deals, they just won’t happen at launch.
