By now you know that being cut in half is not necessarily the end, especially for a Sith Lord! It seems that fan pressure has managed to resurrect Darth Maul for the new animated TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, how this actually occurs is any ones guess, but the return of one the best baddies ever will be much appreciated by fans of the movies and TV series.
According to the Clone Wars supervising director Dave Filoni, he has said;
“I found it funny in The Phantom Menace when Darth Maul got cut in half. I thought George was definitively saying to the fans, ‘There’s no way this character is coming back. This is not a Boba Fett/Sarlacc Pit situation where, because of fan love, Boba gets out of that thing any number of ways.’ Fast-forward ten-years, and I’m the one to bring Maul back.”
