This rumour does come from Daniel Ricthman on Patreon.
I know that he has a pretty bad track record with this sort of stuff, but let’s assume his sources are correct this time.
Anyway, he’s claiming that Maul will be used in future Star Wars projects.
The reason why this might have been rather uncertain before this is because of what happened with Ray Park.
Park got into quite a bit of trouble recently.
I won’t go into what happened, but I will say that it resulted in him losing his gig playing Darth Maul in the Star Wars movies.
He turned up as the character at the very end of Sol0: A Star Wars Story.
It was glorious seeing back as Darth Sidious’ former apprentice.
Darth Maul could be coming back for more Star Wars projects
There were rumours that Disney and Lucasfilm were developing a live-action TV series with Park as Maul.
Some people suggested it would be a Darth Maul-centric TV show.
However, Disney distancing themselves from the actor suggested that those plans wouldn’t come to fruition.
That said, this rumour suggests that Disney still wants to go ahead with these upcoming Star Wars projects involving Darth Maul.
I’m not sure who they’d get to replace Park.
He was Darth Maul, so some of these Star Wars projects that Maul is supposedly involved in might be animated ones.
Ray Park never actually did the voice of Maul.
Peter Serafinowicz voiced the character in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.
Sam Witwer then voiced him in most of the animated series as well as Solo: A Star Wars Story.
What do you make of this rumour?
Would you like to see Darth Maul return in a future Star Wars project?
