Star Wars fans are discovering awesome new things about the franchise every day. This time, a new detail from the Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith got the fans really excited, in a sequence that involves the character General Grievous.

When he removes his robe and prepares all his four lightsabers, there are two battle droids seen in the background. One is looking forward to the battle that's about to unfold, but his cohort in the droid army isn't. So the droid on the right nudges the other, signaling that it should pay attention and watch. The person responsible for the background joke confirmed this on Twitter, saying that he made it during his internship at Industrial Light & Magic.

"Dare I add that this was me?" character animator Jean-Denis Haas wrote. "Best. Internship. Ever." You can check out the epic scene below!

Robe Coleman, who was the animation director on Revenge of the Sith, also replied in the thread. Saying that the team hid "many" Easter eggs in the background of the prequels. "Thanks for noticing this one," he wrote. "I know you will have fun finding many more."

During this self-quarantine, fans surely have plenty of time to go over the prequel trilogy and discover these cool gags happening in the background.

Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith is available to stream on Disney+.
