Darth Maul Strikes Back

That’s right, Darth Maul is making his way back to the Star Wars universe… and this time he’ll actually talk!!! The much loved Clone Wars animated series will revive the deceased Sith in its newer episodes. Some might say this is a little too convenient, considering the international relaunch of The Phantom Menace, but considering George Lucas’s recent deluge of shameless promoting, I don’t think this was unexpected.

Hey, look on the bright side, at least Darth Maul will finally be a full-on badass. As much as I love the character, his role in Episode 1 was ‘cool’ at best. Sure, he is my favorite lightsaber wielding baddie of the prequels, but he didn’t really have that great of a subplot. Well, we all know that the Clone Wars writers are pretty damn great (as opposed to that nostalgia destroyer, Lucas), so I’m actually pretty psyched for this new turn. Oh, and did I forget to mention that Force Unleashed‘s Sam Witwer is starring as the red-skinned Sith? ┬áCheck out the reveal trailer below…

Heyo. I'm Nick Dourian, the Editor-In-Chief around these parts. Now, I went to a few other sites, read a few awesome bios, and I really want to fabricate a badass origins story for myself, but I'm feeling particularly unimaginative today, so 'f' that jazz. I read comics, drink bourbon, and cook meats. Imagine Ron Swanson, but with a fuller beard and cuter eyes.
