Speaking during a stream on Twitch, Darth Maul voice actor Sam Witwer briefly touched upon the freshly announced animated series The Bad Batch, which land in 2021, and it appears he is more than impressed with what he has seen so far.

“I will tell you it looks really really good. It looks absolutely beautiful. The story…at least I know where the story begins for the first several episodes and I was very pleased because it’s a little area of Star Wars that has not often been visited. “

Witwer also gave few hints regarding the animation style, other than the work being done was outstanding.

“It meant getting a lot of people back in there that was previously been at Lucasfilm and moved on when Clone Wars was cancelled. In order to do Clone Wars, you needed a lot of those folks back. What I liked is that they didn’t just put all back that together only to let them go again. So what I saw was brilliant, extraordinary beautiful beautiful beautiful animation. I won’t say what it looks like but I will say this, of the quality of Clone Wars where that bar is set, yes absolutely totally! “

We discussed the show on Episode 45 of Making Tracks, which you can listen to below.
