General Grievous returns in new Star Wars series: watch the first spectacular lightsaber battle now

by Tommy

A new Star Wars series is starting on Disney+ in just a few days. It features the return of some well-known characters, first and foremost the terrifying General Grievous from Revenge of the Sith

On May 4, 2024, not only will Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace return to the big screen. We can also expect the release of a new Star Wars series on Disney+. Specifically, it is the animated anthology Tales of the Empire, in which many well-known characters from the star saga return.

From Darth Vader to Grand Admiral Thrawn: the first trailer for Tales of the Empire already surprised with a considerable number of well-known Star Wars villains. Now you can watch the first clip from the series, in which none other than General Grievous grabs his lightsabers

Grievous made his most prominent appearance to date in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, where he fought Obi-Wan Kenobi on the planet Utapau. He also appeared as an antagonist in several episodes of the animated series The Clone Wars. Now he is involved in stories of the Empire.

You can watch the Grievous fight here:

In contrast to Revenge of the Sith, where Grievous went into battle with four lightsabers, in the new Star Wars series he only fights with two lightsabers, one green and one blue. He took them from Jedi in battle. Perhaps he can add another one to his collection in the course of the story.
