With the announcement that all Star Wars films will be pushed back a year, fans needed some good news. Well, it looks like we are getting it as it has been reported by The Direct that fan-favorite character Darth Maul will be making appearances in multiple Disney+ shows.
Not only will Darth Maul be featured in multiple Star Wars series for the streaming service but The Direct is reporting he will also have his own Dinsey+ series serving as a spin-off to Solo.
It was also mentioned that Qi’ra will supposedly have a major role in the series once again being played by Emilia Clarke, reprising her role from Solo.
What This Means For The Future Of Darth Maul
This news means a lot of different things for the future of Darth Maul as well as the future of all of the different Disney+ shows currently in development.
First off, it definitely means that Lucasfilm is not finished telling stories about the mysterious Crimson Dawn organization featured in Solo.
Secondly, this also means that Lucasfilm is still doubling down on their character-focused shows such as the Cassian Andor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and the recently rumored Lando Calrissian series. Maul is for sure one of those characters that fans are dying to see in standalone series considering there are still so many questions left unanswered with this character.
What Series Will Maul Be Featured In?
There are multiple different series that Maul could be featured in but the most obvious choice has got to be the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series. The two characters have a long standing rivalry going all the way back to The Phantom Menace so it makes perfect sense for Maul to potentially appear.
Of course Obi-Wan did finally settle the score in Star Wars Rebels by finally killing Maul, but the Obi-Wan series is presumed to take place before the events of Rebels so it is still possible for Maul to appear.
Another series Maul could appear in would be the recently announced Bad Batch spin-off based on the characters from Star Wars The Clone Wars. While Maul didn’t actually interact with the Bad Batch bunch during The Clone Wars I think it’s still safe to say that he could appear due to the series’ tie with The Clone Wars.
There is currently no word on when any of these Maul projects will get released, so stay tuned for more information.
