Longtime series composer, Kevin Kiner, tweets about working so hard on a music cue for the finale of Star Wars: The Bad Batch that he cried.
Series composer, Kevin Kiner, warns that some of the music in the finale to Star Wars: The Bad Batch was enough to make him cry. Kiner has been working on this part of the Star Wars universe since George Lucas started the 3D animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars cartoons back in 2008. With all that time spent creating music centered on the clones, it would be reasonable to understand why Kiner would be emotionally invested in their ultimate fate.
Premiering just this past May the 4th, Star Wars: The Bad Batch is a spin-off from Lucas’s The Clone Wars, which concluded with the release of season 7 on Disney+ last year. The new series centers on a group of augmented clones first introduced in the final season of the The Clone Wars, each more independent and unique than their brethren and enhanced with special abilities like tracking senses or extra strength. The current storyline has the group taking care of the newest member of their ranks, the augmented female clone Omega, a child they rescued from Kamino as they fled both the encroaching Empire and their own member, Crosshair, now brainwashed due to his inhibitor chip.

Kiner Brothers Music tweeted recently that a music cue for the finale of Star Wars: The Bad Batch was sad enough to make him cry. In the tweet, Kiner stated that they were working on the finale, and asked if it was normal to be “working on a cue so hard you start crying?” Following the statement, Kiner replied with his amusement that the Tweet managed to attract over one thousand followers to their account.

To be fair, the exact wording of the tweet does leave the possibility open to other interpretations. Maybe the music cue itself was not all that emotional, but just exceedingly difficult and time-consuming, and Kiner and company were so exhausted that they teared up in frustration. Though unlikely, it is still a possibility, especially if Kiner was trying to tease the ending without dropping any actual spoilers. Regardless, the tweet has left fans of the series very nervous about where things are going.
With everything that Star Wars: The Bad Batch has set up so far, plus a lack canonical knowledge of any members of the Bad Batch from any future shows or series, the fate of the main characters of the show might be bleak. While one or two of the Batch, most likely Crosshair or Omega, may survive the finale of the series, it seems more reasonable to assume that the entire squad will be lost by the end. Similar to how Rogue One ended with all the characters the audience had met sacrificing themselves to ensure a future for the galaxy, there is a good chance the Bad Batch might go out in a similar fashion.
