What’s going on?
Park, who played the live-action version of Darth Maul, recently shared a photo of Maul horns in front of a mirror. The location of the post read “Tatooine.” But it also had a simple message:
- “Meet me on Dathomir!”
- “SITH LIFE!”
Darth Maul last appeared in a live-action “Star Wars” project in “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” Per CinemaBlend, he was revealed to be the boss of Qi’Ra (Emilia Clarke). He asked her to meet him on Dathomir, which has long been his home planet.
There have been some rumors about Maul — who has appeared in multiple episodes of the animates series “Star Wars: Clone Wars” and “Star Wars Rebels” — making a return to live action. In fact, I wrote about how there was speculation that “Star Wars” actor Sam Witwer, who has voiced Maul in the past, appeared in “The Mandalorian” Season 2 premiere. Witwer denied the rumor.
There has been some speculation that Maul (who would be dead at this point in the timeline of “The Mandalorian” since he passed away in “Rebels”) would appear in “The Mandalorian”, as I wrote for the Deseret News.
Witwer, who voiced Maul in “Clone Wars” and “Rebels,” and Park, who played the character in “The Phantom Menace,” both had social media posts at the end of Season 1 that suggested Maul may still be alive, according to Forbes.
That said, we are expecting a new series based on Obi-Wan Kenobi, which takes place on Tatooine. So could Maul appear there as well? It’s unclear. But you never know what characters might return in the “Star Wars” universe.
