Hey there, Clone Wars fans! So my head is still buzzing from last weekend's New York Comic-Con as I was able to see so much Star Wars stuff! And yet there's always more to come, with this trailer just released from Lucasfilm, the Darth Maul Returns trailer, Darth is coming back in Spring of 2012 to The Clone Wars and he's gonna be bad!!
Here's the official deets on Darth Maul's return:
Darth Maul, the sinister Sith Lord who amped up the dark side in 1999's Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, returns to the Saga this spring in Star Wars: The Clone Wars!
Revered by fans for his striking red and black tattooed-face, graceful but lethal fighting style, and signature double-bladed lightsaber, Maul was believed killed by Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi at the end of Episode I. In the Star Wars universe, however, one must never underestimate the power of the dark side!
Check out the awesome clip here:
“The decision to continue Darth Maul’s story was something that came directly from George,” says Dave Filoni, Supervising Director of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. “We all agreed that his return needed to be unique, unexpected and revenge filled. We don’t know what his outcome will be, and as a fan - that’s exciting.”
While fans await Darth Maul's return to The Clone Wars, they'll soon be able to experience the excitement of his original introduction to the Star Wars Saga when Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace is released in theaters on February 10, 2012 in spectacular 3D!
Ok, seriously, aren't we all ready for a little 3D action???
