Darth Maul to appear in Star Wars: The Clone Wars this spring


Darth Maul to Appear in Star Wars: The Clone Wars

“But he was cut in half by Obiwan! I saw it with my own eyes and it was canon!” is probably the first set of thoughts that will come to your mind upon hearing the news, but Star Wars: The Clone Wars‘ supervising director, Dave Filoni has confirmed that the Sith apprentice who made double-edged lightsabers cool is going to show up on The Clone Wars this coming spring, in the follow up arc to the previous season’s Savage Opress storyline.

In a recent interview with EW.com, Filoni has made it known that he is well aware of the fact that it’s going to be an uphill battle to get the loyal fans to accept Maul’s return, due to the challenges of crafting a story that will not ruin his supposed demise at the hands of Obiwan Kenobi in The Phantom Menace. The biggest issue they have to deal with, as Filoni says, is how Maul managed to survive getting cut in half. He also noted that since Obiwan is still around, it would be interesting to see them cross paths again.

Another interesting bit is that the idea to bring Darth Maul back came directly from George Lucas himself. Filoni let it slip that a small part of Lucas’ motivation came from a feeling that the Sith apprentice was underutilized in the Phantom Menace.
