Report: Maul Returns To Star Wars On Disney+
In an exclusive, Andrew Gilman of the TheDirect.com reported:
Darth Maul Will Appear in Multiple Star Wars Disney+ Shows
The Direct can exclusively report that Darth Maul will appear in multiple live-action Star Wars series for Disney+ in the coming years, according to our insider sources. Among these series, Lucasfilm is developing a live-action show that will be focused on the antagonist. In addition, Qi’ra is expected to feature prominently in the series, played once again by Emilia Clarke.
Not (quite yet) the #MakeSolo2Happen result so many of us wished for; however, the possibility of Lando, Qi’ra, and Maul in the mix is definitely a game-changer for the next couple of years.
Star Wars On Disney+
Yesterday, MickeyBlog.com posted:
But live-action Star Wars fans enjoy so many favorites floating around the canon stories set up on Disney+.
However, many fans — like this one — truly LOVED Solo: A Star Wars Story.
TheDirect.com also added:
While nothing is certain, all evidence points to the Maul-centric show being about Crimson Dawn; the criminal group featured in 2018’s Solo… The inclusion of Qi’ra leaves a few other possibilities, giving fans the continuation of the story set up by Solo. Formerly Darth, now just Maul, the antagonist will have the opportunity to shine under the stars as he continues his path of destruction in the galaxy far, far away.
And — frankly — there’s no more interesting a character than Lando Calrissian:
But Maul owns — perhaps — the most amazing character development in all of Star Wars canon.
A one-trick baddie in his original outing in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace; the “resurrection” of the Sith apprentice in Star Wars: The Clone Wars made for one of the most compelling arcs imaginable….
[Head shake] Man, can you believe we might get more Maul?
