ATTENTION: THE FOLLOWING REPORT IS A RUMOR. PLEASE TAKE THE FOLLOWING STORY WITH A GRAIN OF SALT.
With Disney continuing to push for more original content for their streaming service, it appears that another show may be in development. With the recent Book of Boba Fett show gaining a lot of attention (despite the mixed reception) it appears that Lucasfilm will be adapting the prequel trilogy equivalent to Boba. A character who was mysterious in the films and was mostly brought back due to their popularity and appearance. The former Sith Apprentice, Darth Maul.
According Giant Freaking Robot, a “trusted and proven source” of theirs has told them that a Darth Maul series in in development. It is currently unknown when the show will take place but it is suspected to take place around the time of either Solo: A Star Wars Story or the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. Darth Maul appeared at the end of the standalone Solo film, which confused a number of general audience members as not everyone has seen either the Clone Wars or Rebels TV shows that explain why he is still alive.
Darth Maul is one of the more popular dar side users in all the Star Wars franchise, probably just behind Darth Vader in popularity. Some reports even suggest that before George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney that he was meant to be the main villain of Episodes 7 – 9 with Darth Talon as his apprentice. The character has been the subject of multiple appearances in video games, comics and a number of fan films such as Star Wars: Darth Maul; Contract of Evil, Mr. and Mrs. Sith and the extremely popular Darth Maul – Apprentice.
It is unknown if Ray Park may return to the role. But if Ewan Mcgregor is returning as Obi-Wan perhaps we may see him return as well. Maybe we’ll even see Darth Maul cross paths with Darth Vader if we’re lucky.
If this report is true let’s hope that it isn’t as divisive as the recent Boba Fett series.
