Darth Maul’s origin is as detailed as it is mysterious. From his first, mostly silent appearance in Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace to his more recent appearances in Star Wars: Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels, this elusive and hard to kill dark force wielder has his own agenda. He is often split on his motivations and Darth Mauls actions often pull him in two directions, so we made a video to fill you in on everything this former Sith has been up to since his first encounter with Obi-Wan Kenobi. How is Darth Maul still alive? Watch and find out!

  1. To those who haven’t, in general check out most of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and some of Star Wars: Rebels. They’re both overall Fantastic.

  2. But ABSOLUTELY check out The Clone Wars episodes and that feature Maul, and Son Of Dathomir comics. Such great, scary and well choreographed fights and it’s just amazing stories coming in nonstop. If you want to know and care more about Savage Opress or The Mandalorians don’t worry there’s episodes that just focus on them too. I promise those who haven’t seen those, you will be shocked and amazed.

  3. I didn’t like Maul’s arc in Rebels. I don’t think it’s that bad but I wouldn’t say your missing out on anything except for maybe episodes Twilight of the Apprentice and Twin Suns. Why?
    1. In the other two episodes, no awesome Maul fight scenes that are fast paced and scary.
    2. His motivations make NO Sense, he’s in Twilight of the Apprentice wanting revenge on Sidious and then suddenly out of nowhere Kenobi, AGAIN!!!
    I mean c’mon Sidious killed Maul’s mother and brother (hey just because he’s evil that doesn’t make him not value family).
