Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 1 Earns Fresh Rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics and fans agree! Star Wars: The Bad Batch has had a very successful premiere on Disney+, with many fans excited at the exploration of the time between Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith and Episode 4: A New Hope. Particularly, from the point of view of a rogue group of individuals who find themselves in a grey area between the new Galactic Empire and the building Rebel Forces.

The series opened with Episode 1: Aftermath, and though we won’t spoil the story for you, we do get a good introduction at the various personalities of The Bad Batch Members and other key players in the show. Surprisingly, we are also introduced to other characters from the Star Wars Universe that have been featured in the Star Wars films. At the time of writing, we are still waiting for an official “certified fresh” rating, but Episode 1: Aftermath has been hovering around the high 90’s on the Tomatometer, with the latest number being a 96% fresh rating.
