Star Wars: The Bad Batch featured clone troopers resisting the Empire’s control. Could the Kamino uprising return to Star Wars canon?
Warning! Spoilers ahead for Star Wars: The Wrong Lot Episode 12, “Rescue on Ryloth”
Star wars may be setting up a former Legends clone rebellion, bringing it back to the main canon timeline thanks to the animated show Star Wars: The Wrong Lot. Taking place just after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and the end of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the series provided new information about the transition period for the galaxy with the fall of the Republic and the rise of the Empire in its place. As the series follows the one-off Clone Force 99 as a fugitive from the Empire, it has also seen standard Clone Troopers start to resist as well. Therefore, The bad lot could set up the currently non-cannon battle known as the Kamino Uprising.
In The bad lot Episode 12, Clone Force 99 has agreed to help young Hera Syndulla save her parents from the Empire’s harsh and oppressive occupation of their homeworld of Ryloth. The Syndulla family are hugely influential freedom fighters on the planet, and they have fought alongside Republic forces for years to protect their people from the oppression of the separatists (only for the Empire to sorely take its place. ). As a result, Clone Captain Howzer is unable to stand any longer, and he helps the Syndullas escape. Not only that, but he appeals to his men before being arrested that what they have done for the Empire is wrong. Remarkably, there were a handful of clones who agreed with him and laid down their arms (only to be arrested as traitors as well). That being said, there could be more clones than the few on Ryloth that could be made to rebel, and the Kamino Uprising of 2005. Battlefront 2 video game could definitely arrive for the series finale.
Battlefront 2 The story mode followed the campaigns of the 501st Legion, narrated by one of its soldiers (voiced by live-action clone trooper actor Temuera Morrison). According to the narration, there was actually a clone rebellion on Kamino after Revenge of the Sith which could certainly be suitable for The bad lot:
âOfficially, there has never been a Clone Rebellion on Kamino. Unofficially, about 20 years after our creation, a special detachment of the 501st Imperial Legion was dispatched to Kamino with orders to eradicate a Clone Army. who had been bred to take up arms against the Empire. Our Mission Commander, an expert on Kamino’s inner workings, was a young bounty hunter named Boba Fett.
If a new canonical Kamino uprising were to take place in The wrong lot, rather it would be shortly after the events of Revenge of the Sith rather than being at the heart of the Empire’s rule as the narrative suggests. Other than that, it looks ripe for an adaptation based on what has been seen so far from certain clones in the new series, the Kaminoans themselves, and even a possible appearance by Boba Fett. The Empire is already considering using enlisted Stormtroopers rather than continuing production of clones, although it seems doubtful that they will simply allow cloning facilities to continue without their control and supervision, lest an army is not created to oppose them. As such, it’s entirely possible that a true Clone Civil War will take place as the Empire continues to tighten its grip on the galaxy.
While the Kamino uprising would certainly be a dynamic way to end The bad lots season one, the finale could play out in a number of ways and that’s just guesswork. However, it would be cool to see some of the clones resist the Empire to the point where they’re ready to strike back, highlighting the fact that not all of the clones got bad after Order 66. Star Wars: The Wrong Lot proves that the life of the clone troopers was much more complex, especially with the rise of the Empire in the Star wars galaxy.
