‘The Bad Batch’ Creator Addresses ‘Star Wars’ Canon Retcon In Premiere

Star Wars: The Bad Batch executive producer Jennifer Corbett opened up about the retcon in the premiere episode of the series.

Spoilers ahead for the first episode of Star Wars: The Bad Batch!

In 2014, Lucasfilm announced that all the Star Wars books and comics would be a part of one canon. As a result, the previous Expanded Universe material also fell under a new banner known as Legends. In the premiere episode of Star Wars: The Bad Batch, we see a young Kanan from Rebels during Order 66. Fans were quick to notice that the scene in the new animated series overrides what we’ve seen previously in the Kanan: The Last Padawan comic book from 2015.

REVIEW: ‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch’ Premiere Is A Solid Follow-Up To ‘The Clone Wars’

Since the Kanan scene in Star Wars: The Bad Batch plays out a little differently, Fandom asked executive producer Jennifer Corbett about the change to canon in the series. Here’s what she had to say:

“I can tell you that that particular sequence we spent the most time on in the pilot, from writing to production to editing to reshooting, because a lot of talk went into how we wanted to portray that pivotal moment with Dave Filoni and with Brad… Everything we did was for a reason and it might not match 100% but it’s sort of just wanting to honor what existed but also give another take on it in this story.”

Are you glad Kanan appeared in the premiere? Do you wish it was closer to what happened in the 2015 comic book? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below!

Here is the synopsis for Star Wars: The Bad Batch:

The series follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in The Clone Wars) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch — a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army — each possess a singular exceptional skill, which makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew. In the post-Clone War era, they will take on daring mercenary missions as they struggle to stay afloat and find new purpose.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch is executive produced by Dave Filoni, Athena Portillo, Brad Rau, and Jennifer Corbett with Carrie Beck as co-executive producer and Josh Rimes as producer. Rau is also serving as supervising director, with Corbett as head writer. Dee Bradley Baker is behind the voices of Clone Force 99.

‘Awake’ Trailer: A Post-Apocalyptic Movie Where No One Can Fall Asleep

In A Quiet Place, people need to remain silent. In Birdbox, people need to keep their eyes shut. Now here comes Awake, where everyone somehow loses the ability to sleep. This latest post-apocalyptic thriller looks like a mishmash of Children of Men and The Last of Us video game series, with a little Bird Box and A Quiet Place thrown in for good measure. After a mysterious event knocks out all electronics and somehow robs people of their ability to sleep, chaos reigns. But there might be hope in the form of a little girl who still has the ability to catch some z’s. Watch the Awake trailer below, and then try to get a good night’s rest. You never know when a mysterious happening will suddenly and inexplicably keep you from doing so.

Awake Trailer

In Awake, “Global hysteria ensues after a mysterious catastrophe wipes out all electronics and takes away humanity’s ability to sleep. Scientists race against the clock to find a cure for the unexplained insomnia before its fatal effects eliminate the human race. When Jill, a former soldier, discovers her young daughter may be the key to salvation, she must decide: protect her children at all costs or sacrifice everything to save the world.” Mark Raso directs the film, which stars Gina Rodriguez, Ariana Greenblatt, Frances Fisher, Shamier Anderson, Finn Jones, Lucius Hoyos, Gil Bellows, with Barry Pepper and Jennifer Jason Leigh, and if you want to have some fun, just pretend this is a sequel to Annihilation, a movie that also featured Rodriguez and Leigh. Hell, Leigh even seems to be playing the same character here as she played in that film.

I like a good post-apocalyptic flick as much as the next person, but I’m not sure what to make of Awake. I guess what’s throwing me off is the lack of electronics element – why did that need to be part of a movie where people suddenly lose the ability to sleep? I guess to make things more desperate, but still, “we have no electricity and also people can’t fall asleep!” seem completely slammed together without much thought.

Still, this looks suitably intense. “Humanity immediately succumbs to chaos the minute its inconvenienced” is a concept I can get behind, because that’s exactly what would happen. Have you met humanity? We stink! We’d absolutely start going bonkers if all our cell phones shut down and we couldn’t take a nap.

Awake is headed to Netflix on Wednesday, June 9, 2021.
