In the early stages of the Clone Wars, the Galactic Republic was involved in a battle on the planet Hypori. During the battle, a group of Jedi Knights were taken by surprise. In the years following the battle, the hulk of a crashed Acclamator-class transgalactic military assault ship stood as a grim memorial of the battle.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Battle of Hypori was first depicted in Chapters 20 and 21 of the 2003 to 2005 animated Legends microseries Star Wars: Clone Wars. In the episodes, a group of Jedi are ambushed by General Grievous, in his first-ever appearance. Its first canonical reference was in the 2016 novel Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel, by James Luceno.
