Sam Witwer finally confirmed as Darth Maul in Clone Wars… plus a look at him in action

February 18th, 2012 by Marc Comments

The Darth Maul arc kicks off today in The Clone Wars, but we won’t see Maul himself until March 9th, however, as we reported a few weeks ago, Sam Witwer who voiced the Son in the Mortis trilogy and Galen Merrick in The Force Unleashed games has been talking about Darth Maul – is he still a darth? – and what he has gone through since his ‘death’ at the hands of Obi-Wan Kenobi in The Phantom Menace.


So what can we gleam fro this? Maul is at least partially insane, the Dark Side having consumed him. Sith magic has kept him alive. His brother, Savage, is going to try to straighten him out and naturally his target is Obi-Wan so he can have revenge. At last. Other things we learned? Clancy Brown looks like he’s having a ball, Dave Filoni wears a baseball hat in the recording booth and Sam Witwer may be nuts. Totally nuts.


Personally I would have loved to have seen them take a different direction altogether and have Maul, see? No Darth, go after Darth Sidious for leaving him to die… but that’s not how Dave Filoni and the guys roll.. Either way, we’re stoked…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
