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…
