From the moment fans met female Jango Fett clone, Omega (Michelle Ang), in the first episode of Dave Filoni’s latest animated series, Star Wars: The Bad Batch, there was something special about the little girl who had never ventured beyond Kamino.
Soon, however, Omega had her fill of intergalactic adventure — alongside Clone Force 99 troopers Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, and Echo (Dee Bradley Baker) — when she escaped from the Galactic Empire’s hold on Kamino following the execution of Emperor Palpatine’s Order 66.
As The Bad Batch and their young charge traversed the Star Wars galaxy (sound familiar, Mandalorian fans?), Omega’s secrets began to emerge.
Not only did it become clear that the little girl was actually older than the “defective” clone troopers in Clone Force 99, but we discovered that she could actually be the key to creating the “perfect” clone in the Star Wars universe.
Unlike Rey’s (Daisy Ridley) father — a failed Palpatine clone who was attractive, but not Force-sensitive — or Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) — strong with the Force, but horribly deformed — in the sequel trilogy, Omega is both beautiful and, seemingly, a powerful Force wielder.
And, perhaps most shocking to Star Wars fans, we learned that Omega is actually notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett’s “sister”. This, of course, led the fan community to speculate that an older, live-action version of Omega could appear in Temuera Morrison (Boba Fett) and Ming-Na Wen’s (Fennec Shand) The Book of Boba Fett, which is set to premier on December 29, 2021.
Now, it seems that fans might get much more than a live-action Omega cameo — there just might be an entire series featuring a grown-up Omega in the works.
Per a new report:
It will focus on a force-sensitive Bounty Hunter who represses and hides her force abilities. However, when a target escapes and informs the empire of her abilities, the Inquisitors are sent to track and destroy her. The Inquisitors have fought Jedi, but have they fought a Bounty Hunter with raw force power? I think not!
According to the rumor, early concept art for the “gritty” show features the female bounty hunter wearing black and red armor, not dissimilar from that worn by Clone Force 99. This has lead to rampant speculation that the lead character in the series can’t be anyone but Omega.
At this time, however, neither Lucasfilm nor The Walt Disney Company have confirmed anything about an upcoming live-action Omega-centric series. However, Star Wars: The Bad Batch will be back for Season 2 in 2022.
What do you think? Are you looking forward to potentially seeing Omega in live-action?
