New Star Wars: Tales Of The Empire Clip Shows Barriss Offee’s Recruitment


During Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Barriss Offee turned against the Jedi Order and framed her friend, Ahsoka Tano, for bombing the Jedi Temple. That ultimately led to Ahsoka leaving the Jedi behind. Barriss’ fate after that series was left unknown, but her dark path will be revealed in the upcoming animated anthology series, Star Wars: Tales of the Empire. In a new preview clip from the show, Barriss’ crimes against the Jedi give her an opportunity to escape life imprisonment.

Barriss initially believes that her visitor, Lyn, has come on behalf of the Jedi Council. Instead, the Fourth Sister reveals that she no longer answers to Lyn before preparing to offer Barriss a place among the Inquisitors, the former Jedi who turned against their own kind and hunted them for the Empire.

The trailer for Star Wars: Tales of the Empire has revealed that Barriss’ Inquisitor training will put her face-to-face with Darth Vader, the man who exposed her crimes to the Jedi when he was still Anakin Skywalker. Whether Barriss will recognize Vader as Anakin remains to be seen.

Tales of the Empire will also follow the story of Morgan Elsbeth before her appearances in The Mandalorian and Ahsoka. A previous preview clip from the series featured Morgan as a Nightsister in a losing battle against General Grievous. Morgan’s side of the story will also reveal how she came to serve Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Meredith Salenger and Diana Lee Inosanto are reprising their respective roles as Barriss and Morgan for Star Wars: Tales of the Empire, which will premiere on Disney+ on May 4.
