As the new Daiymo, or crime lord of Tatooine, Boba Fett can’t seem to catch a break. When he was a bounty hunter, things seemed to be simple.
Disney + has released the trailer to the “Book of Boba Fett” which centers around the titular bounty hunter who has taken over Jabba the Hutt’s criminal empire at the end of “The Mandalorian” Season 2.
As seen in “Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,” the Clone Wars further created a political division within the galaxy. Some planets aligned with the Galactic Republic, while others aligned with the Confederacy of Independent Systems (CIS) or the Separatists.
In the latest episode, “Reunion,” the Bad Batch gets cornered by Crosshair and the Empire on the planet Bracca thanks to the scrapper guild alerting them. However, while the Bad Batch tries to get off the junkyard-wide planet, it seems that not everyone on the Imperial side is on the same page.
The inhibitor chips implanted into the heads of the Clones in the Grand Army of the Republic have changed the course of the Star Wars Galaxy. When the self-appointed Emperor Palpatine uttered the chilling words “Execute Order 66,” almost every Clone trooper unwillingly carried out their programming to kill the Jedi Knights and their padawans, or those who aided them.
As Clone Force 99, The Bad Batch acclimates further into mercenary life, and they are sent on their second mission as mercenaries. Cid has tasked the clones to retrieve a separatist tactical droid from a decommissioning facility on the planet Corellia so that she can sell it and make money.
Everyone is feeling the effects of the nascent Galactic Empire. The Bad Batch, besides Crosshair, are seen as deserters. The Jedi are all but extinct after Order 66 was carried out by the clones. Citizens across the galaxy are forced to have chain codes so that the Empire can keep tabs on them. The underworld is also feeling the effects as the Bad Batch travels to the Outer Rim planet Ord Mantell to get intel on the bounty hunter sent to go after Omega.
