Darth Maul is one of the only good parts of the first Star Wars prequel (even if he’s only on screen for less than 15 minutes). Unfortunately, his demise at the end of that film is totally unworthy of his badassery and although the Clone Wars TV series retconned him back into Star Wars canon, the character has always felt like a giant missed opportunity.
Fortunately, this new fan film addresses this issue head on and delivers Darth Maul the way he was meant to be: quiet, confident, and an absolute beast at lightsaber duels. Created by T7 Production, the film took almost two years to make and was created primarily to address Darth Maul’s lack of screen time in The Phantom Menace. It clocks in at over 17 minutes long, but you should really watch the whole thing. It’s very well done!
