Darth Maul returns in Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Darth Maul returns in Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Cartoon Network has let it be known: Darth Maul is on his way back. The Sith Lord from Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace began as the apprentice to Darth Sidious. But his demonic red face, horned head, and double-bladed lightsaber have kept the character incredibly powerful: even after his apparent death in the first film, at the hands of Obi-Wan Kenobi. But what if he wasn’t dead? What if Darth Maul somehow survived? This is the premise being explored later this season on Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars – and frankly, we can’t wait to find out what happens!

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Premiere Episode – Darkness on Umbara

Cartoon Network and Lucasfilm have recently released a new video clip that will serve as a teaser for the premiere episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The episode, entitled Darkness on Umbara, will premiere on October 28, Friday 2011 @ 8 PM (ET/PT). The return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars to the small screens will be heralded by an exciting four part story arc that focuses on the clone troopers as they find themselves stranded on a hostile alien planet. The clones’ problems are seemingly compounded by the fact that they are currently under the command of a strict, hard-nosed Jedi general named Pong Krell.

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.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars season four on Cartoon Network

Star Wars: The Clone Wars season four on Cartoon Network

Maybe it started a long, long time ago, but it really only feels like three years! The truth is, Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been one of Cartoon Network’s biggest hits over the past few seasons; so much so that the CN is proudly bringing the Lucas teams back for yet another season – the show’s fourth. What will be in store for The Clone Wars season four? Well, we got a glimpse of that a few weeks back, but here’s what we’re hoping for: more Chewbacca, more looks into the life and family of Darth Maul and Savage Opress, and maybe just a tease of some Han Solo! Maybe as some sorta rebellious baby. Oooh, and maybe my own Lightsaber. Anyone else?

Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace 3D hits theaters February 10th

Aren’t you a little 2D for a Stormtrooper? Well worry no more, Princess, because the days of 3D Star Warsing are here! Just this week, Lucasfilm Ltd., Twentieth Century Fox, and Industrial Light & Magic announced that all six Star Wars films are returning to theaters, completely reworked for the third dimension. First up is Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, ready to hit theaters on February 10th, 2012. The added 3D depth will truly allow the lightsaber battle between Darth Maul and the two Jedi to leap off the screen, with the background, of course, looking like a galaxy far, far away.

Nightsisters brings Savage Opress to Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Nightsisters brings Savage Opress to Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Just waiting to dig into some Clone Wars action scenes? Already a buzz with the Force thanks to the recent Star Wars Blu-ray announcements? Well Cartoon Network has some big stuff planned for you, starting with the newest Nightsisters storyline for season 3 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The three-episode arc introduces Savage Opress, whom George Lucas himself dubbed “Darth Maul’s brother.” With Clancy Brown behind the voice (just as he was for Justice League Unlimited’s Lex Luthor – and SpongeBob’s Mr. Krabs) it seems like this could be the teetering point of giving the Sith full control over the Jedi. Or, perhaps, Savage will stir for the good guys? Mr. Brown himself answers “you don’t really have a choice on who you are when the Nightsisters and Asajj and Count Dooku are involved.” Check out a sneak peek clip

Savage Opress and the Secret of Darth Maul revealed in Star Wars The Clone Wars

Savage Opress and the Secret of Darth Maul revealed in Star Wars The Clone Wars

Star Wars has a very long history. I mean, beyond just the 30+ years the epic has made theatrical appearances, we’re talking about the story that takes place “a long time ago.” The prequels helped fill in the saga, telling parts 1-3 of the overall story arc. Cartoon Network’s CG series The Clone Wars has further deepened that universe, molding the evolution of Anakin Skywalker into Darth Vader. However, one key (and incredibly popular) character shown early in the prequel films has been disappointingly absent from the later movies as well as the toon – what did ever happen with Darth Maul? Looks like Lucasfilm might finally be willing to share that story. Check out a clip of the story in action:
