Who Are the Bad Batch?

Star Wars: The Bad Batch will be joining Disney+ on May the 4th in honor of Star Wars Day 2021, but exactly are the bad batch? Hunter. Tech. Crosshair. Wrecker. Echo. This is experimental unit Clone Force 99 that make up The Bad Batch.

A Scene from "A Distant Echo"

The Bad Batch was first seen in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and each of them have their own skills that they bring to the group. Let’s take a look at what says about each of these troopers.

Hunter is the leader of the group and is known for keeping his cool in tough situations. Hunter was engineered with heightened senses, making him an expert tracker. 

Tech is the techie who is extremely talkative and a computer whiz. His skill is a gift with science and technology allowing to him do things like go through data to opening locked doors and so much more.

Crosshair is the team’s quiet pragmatic sharpshooter. Although he might second guess authority, he always has the team in mind when doing so.

The Bad Batch

Wrecker and Echo (CT-1409) are the last two team members. Wrecker is the team’s muscle where Echo (the newest member) is a former ARC trooper and is half-droid, half-clone.

The Bad Batch will watch as this team comes together to determine where they fit into the new Galactic Empire.


About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
