Matthew Wood Discusses ‘The Clone Wars’ Revival

Matthew Wood has been talking about how excited he’s feeling about the upcoming new series of ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars‘.

Longtime Lucasfilm veteran Matthew Wood, who gave General Grievous his throaty and distorted voice in Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith and The Clone Wars animated series, says overwhelmingly positive fan response to the recently-announced Clone Wars revival is “really exciting.”

“I love working on Star Wars, I’ve been doing it a long time now — this week it’ll be 28 years. Dave Filoni was one of the best things that ever happened to Lucasfilm, and I’m very happy that he’s able and has a lot of the original crew back to come and tell more Clone Wars stories. That for us is really exciting,” Wood told Red Carpet News TV.

Star Wars creator and original series executive producer George Lucas initially greenlit a limited-run series, but The Clone Wars proved so popular it found renewed life long before Disney resurrected the fan-favorite animated series for its upcoming subscription-based streaming service.

“When we worked on Clone Wars originally, George was like, ‘Let’s do six episodes and see where we’re at.’ And at that point, we just kept going. We did a hundred-plus episodes because everyone loved it so much,” Wood said.

We are looking forward to hearing Matthew repirse his role as General Grievous and no doubt there’ll be another few voices in there too. Head over to ComicBook.com to read the full story.
