Disney released a plot synopsis for the premiere episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7, “The Bad Batch.”
The synopsis from Disney reads:
“Captain Rex and the Bad Batch must infiltrate an enemy base on Anaxes.”
For those unfamiliar with Anaxes, it is a rocky planet located in the Core Worlds region. The planet would eventually be destroyed during the early years of the Empire. Following the planet’s destruction, what was left of it would form the Anaxes asteroid belt.
The destruction of the planet is referenced in Star Wars Rebels’ “Out of Darkness” when Hera Syndulla and Sabine Wren take the Phantom and land at Fort Anaxes, which is located in the asteroid field of the shattered planet.
After arriving on Fort Anaxes they discover that the abandoned base has been overrun by fyrnocks and they are forced to fight their way out of the base in order to survive.
The Bad Batch along with three other episodes part of the four-part story arc focusing on Clone Force 99 had previously been released at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim in April 2015. It would subsequently be released on StarWars.com later that month.
At the most recent Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, Star Wars confirmed The Bad Batch arc would be finalized and be part of the final Season 7 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
This synopsis comes a day after Star Wars released the latest trailer for Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7.
Along with the trailer we got a new poster as well.
