Star Wars: The Bad Batch returns to Disney Plus today for its second season. The first two episodes – “Spoils of War” and “Ruins of War” – are available to stream now and suggest that the series will continue the winning streak that led to it winning the trophy for the 2022 Saturn Awards won Best Animated TV Story.
Dee Bradley Baker, who voices Clone Force 99’s Hunter, Echo, Wrecker, Tech and Crosshair, has spoken about what’s to come in season two in an interview with ComicBook, also revealing that he would like to see a surprisingly neglected season war of stars creature to make a comeback.
When asked which character he hoped to meet with Bad Batch, he gave this surprising answer:
“I want them to breed with a Tauntaun. I want them to ride Tauntauns. That is the war of stars Character to crossbreed with because I love Tauntauns.”
Introduced in the 1980s Hoth sequence The Empire Strikes Back, Tauntauns are the rebels’ favorite vehicle on the snowy planet and look like a cross between a mountain goat and a dinosaur. Not only can they handle the freezing temperatures, but they make a good (albeit disgustingly smelly) sleeping bag a must.
Since The Empire Strikes BackTauntauns were a rare presence in war of starsprobably because they only make sense in scenes set on Hoth. Return of the Jedi saw an unfortunate individual appear as a trophy on the wall in Jabba’s palace, although apart from scattered scenes in comics and novels, that’s it.
We say grant Baker his wish, and let’s see The Bad Batch march across the snow-capped Hoth Drifts on a squad of mighty Tauntauns. It’s about time these majestic but smelly creatures made a comeback.
