Star Wars: The Bad Batch makes its series debut on Star Wars Day.

Set in the aftermath of The Clone Wars, the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch trudge on as they find a new purpose in a rapidly changing galaxy. Members of the Bad Batch differ from their brethren genetically, with each member possessing a singular exceptional skill that makes them formidable soldiers. Star Wars: The Bad Batch follows their journey as they take on mission after daring mission.

Disney+ will also debut Maggie Simpson in ‘The Force Awakens From Its Nap,’ a crossover that brings the Star Wars universe to Springfield, where our titular hero is on a quest to recover her stolen pacifier. She inevitably crosses paths with young Padawans, Sith Lords, familiar droids and Rebel scum, culminating in a climactic battle against the hordes from the dark side. It’s the first of several Simpsons crossovers with Disney+ brands and titles.

Other little treats include Star Wars Biomes, which takes you through some of the most iconic locations in the Star Wars film universe like Hoth and Tatooine, while Star Wars Vehicle Flythroughs explores the memorable interiors and exteriors of the Millennium Falcon and an Imperial Star Destroyer in detail.

You’ll also notice that the backdrops on the service have been replaced with illustrations – Lucasfilm and Disney+ commissioned original artwork from artists and fans around the world to feature for several days until May 9. If you like the look of any of the artwork you can buy them through Amazon.
