Although he was pretty neatly bisected at the end of “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace,” Darth Maul has had a robust career as a bad guy in the Star Wars extended universe. Discovered to be alive by his brother in “Star Wars: Clone Wars,” Maul was at first a shadow of his former self, mutilated and insane. He soon got his Dark Side mojo back — to the extent that it took his former master, Emperor Palpatine, to stop him.
A new “Star Wars Rebels” preview proves that Maul is not done with our heroes yet. You can see him invade the Ghost itself, coercing Hera into giving him access to Ezra’s room. He even pulls a Dark Side mind trick, in the style of Kylo Ren, extracting information from the Twi’lek pilot’s unwilling mind.
Maul surprised everyone by appearing in the season two finale of “Star Wars Rebels,” in which he imperils the crew of the Ghost. That season ended with Maul damaging the Ghost crew, both physically and spiritually, and setting Ezra on a path that brings him that much closer to the dark side.
“Star Wars Rebels” features the talents of Freddie Prinze Jr., Taylor Gray, Vanessa Marshall, Tiya Sircar, Steve Blum, Dee Bradley Baker and David Oyelowo. New episodes premiere Saturdays on Disney XD.
