The Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith Reference You Missed In The Book Of Boba Fett Chapter 4

This article contains spoilers for "The Book of Boba Fett" Chapter 4

"The Book of Boba Fett" features many Easter eggs, but on the whole, the Disney+ "Star Wars" show can be surprisingly stealthy with its references. Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) is a nuanced character whose past involves a fascinating stint with the Tusken people, who are portrayed in a considerably more sympathetic light than usual. Wookiee gladiator Black Krrsantan (Carey Jones) from the "Darth Vader" comics drops by. Danny Trejo himself makes a huge cameo in Chapter 3, and reveals that Rancors, of all creatures, have a soft side. 

Knowing all this, it's easy to expect that the latest episode of the show features some cool references and revelations, as well. However, it's unlikely that anyone could have expected the absolutely wild reference to "The Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith" in "The Book of Boba Fett" Chapter 4.

Fans are loving the chef droid's similarities with General Grievous

The episode's kitchen scene features a multi-armed chef droid that has a very familiar way of handling its knives. Namely, its way with the blade is reminiscent of General Grievous (voiced by Matthew Wood), the "Star Wars" villain with four arms, and a lightsaber to go with each and every one of them. 

It's hard to believe that the similarities between this humble chef droid's movements and the "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith" villain's whirring and spinning lightsaber work are a complete coincidence, and fans on Reddit highly appreciated the reference. "General Cleavous!!!" redditor u/SickBurnBro rejoiced. "I have been trained in your culinary arts, by Chef Dooku," another user jokingly appropriated one of Grievous' lines. 

By this point, virtually any "Star Wars" project is full of references to either the original movies or later works, so it can take a lot to impress fans. Apparently, a Grievous-like chef droid — not to forget its colleague, the sous-chef droid — is more than enough to pull this off.
