Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 3 debuted this week on Disney+ with the first three episodes of the Star Wars animated series’ final season, which were darker in tone. Up until now, Star Wars: The Bad Batch – which some consider to be the last Star Wars project with George Lucas’ influence – has been about Clone Force 99 keeping themselves and the young clone Omega outside of the Empire’s reach. That changed in Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 2’s finale, when the Empire captured Omega and took her to Mount Tantiss, where Chief Scientist Royce Hemlock leads experiments related to M-count and Project Necromancer.

That turn of events has resulted in Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 3 having a somewhat more serious tone. The season opener is a muted episode that looks at Omega’s repressed existence within the halls of Mount Tantiss, a far cry from the high adventure that characterized most episodes of Star Wars: The Bad Batch prior. spoke to Michelle Ang, who voices Omega, ahead of the Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 3 premiere. In addition to expressing a bittersweet sentiment about Omega’s story ending, she discussed Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 3’s unorthodox season premiere episode.

“Whenever I get a script, it becomes my sort of manuscript, my touchstone,” Ang explains. “It doesn’t work well for me to look too far forward or too reflective. I have to know where I have come from emotionally. But really, the scripts are so well done and so thoughtful that that becomes what I lean on for performance. But I was relieved that we were starting that way because Season 2 ended so intensely. I think it would have been horrible to just have launched into some sort of like business as usual mission in Season 3. And I will say I had a lot of fun because I feel like season three is a lot darker. It’s more dangerous. There’s a quality to it that feels more thriller but still exciting. There’s a lot more tension because, I guess in honesty, the stakes are higher.”

Ang continued talking about the darker tone of Star Wars: The Bad Batch‘s final season. Like many good modern adventure cartoons, she thinks Star Wars: The Bad Batch may have aged up with its target audience.

“There’s medical testing on living beings happening,” she says. “It’s dark. It’s dark. But, you know, maybe that’s also clever for the creators because for some of the younger – The Bad Batch is accessible for all kinds of people. I think that’s the cool thing about it. But for some of the people who chose to bring in younger viewers or younger family members to watch it from Season 1, perhaps, three years in, they are now ready to have this sort of content. Maybe that’s why, too. But it did have a different flavor. I’m so glad that you picked up on it because I definitely picked up on it as a performer, and it took us to different places.”

What is Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 3 about?

According to Disney+, in Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 3, “the Batch will have their limits tested in the fight to reunite with Omega as she faces challenges of her own inside a remote Imperial science lab. With the group fractured and facing threats from all directions, they will have to seek out unexpected allies, embark on dangerous missions, and muster everything they have learned to free themselves from the Empire.”
