Whether you like the prequels or not, it’s hard to argue that the films arrived without any potential. Chief among the potential best parts of The Phantom Menace was Darth Maul, a terrifying Sith with a one-of-a-kind lightsaber.
“Darth Maul: Apprentice – A Star Wars Film” is what you see at the head of this post. It was written Shawn Bu and choreographed by Vi-Dan Tran. They sent a statement to Entertainment Weekly along with the film.
“We worked incredibly hard on this film for almost two years…We always felt that Darth Maul should have had more screen time. So we wanted to create a film just for him with the best lightsaber fights we could do!”
They did a great job, and that comes from a Star Wars fan without much love for Darth Maul.
