i hope darth maul survives and is still around way after the sequel movies

He's like a cockroach

He could be dead and buried, and the planet he was buried on atomized, and eventually he'd just reform out of sheer spite

I don't know what the odds are of them recreating the Rebels Episode Twin Suns from Obi-Wan's perspective would be

He seems to be making a habit of rescuing kids and their droids in the desert

If I want anything Maul-related, I'd rather it be a video game where you take missions from Palpatine before TPM

...

God dammit, it'd be a Force Unleashed remake, but this time you're Palpatine's apprentice, wouldn't it?

Ya know, you'd think that the Ewoks would've revered Chewie over Threepio since he's three times their size and can rip the arms off his enemies like a vengeful god or something

I'd see it for Darth Maul, but not for this. My dearest hope is that Qira disappears so that they can set up a Darth Maul movie.

But first, she'll have to meet Doctor Aphra, Hera Syndulla, Leia, and probably get involved with the Rebellion in some capacity before becoming Rey's mother and Kylo Ren's aunt

Breaking news: Lando is pansexual.

Wow, what a deep and meaningful expansion on a character's backstory that doesn't ever have reason to come up in the movies themselves and is stated by the writers after the movie is out

It's just like Holdo being Force-sensitive

ie, "That's nice. NEXT!"

What's next, Han tried a relationship with L3-37 and got snubbed, hence his dismissive attitude towards droids in general?

It was pretty great to have Maul be the ringleader, but the cgi work on him was pretty awful (colour holograms = terrible)

Weird thing is, holograms have oftentimes been stated to be in color
Depends on the quality of the projector, and range from monochrome blue, to subdued colors, to full-on color and realistic holograms (such as Snoke's use of them)

Is that what the Resistance didn't have enough of in TLJ?
Yet were still somehow able to fuel, what, over two dozen transport ships? (Whch admittedly didn't have that far to go, but still...)

Having not watched the cartoons, does TCW/Rebels version of Maul keep his old EU pre TPM backstory? I always liked the stuff with Sidious taking him from his home as a child and raising him as a Sith in a sort of evil version of the golden age Jedi way of training. The dynamic of Maul seeing Sidious as more abusive demanding father than master and basically being groomed to fight a holy war he probably doesn’t really care about for his own reasons was good stuff and I feel like would add to the vendetta he’d have with Sidious post-TPM

Son of Dathomir and Star Wars: Darth Maul explore a little bit of Maul's history - the former using scripts from The Clone Wars and the latter set some time before TPM

It's really frustrating that series that should've gone on for so much longer only get a five issue mini-series dedicated to them, such as Star Wars: Anakin & Obi-Wan taking place during Anakin's padawan days, three years after TPM

Even though the comics are probably the best part of the NuCanon

The "Darth Vader" and "Star Wars" comics are also in the process of showing the Empire taking over Mon Cala before ANH and then them rebelling from their rule after ANH respectively, which is an interesting storytelling technique

Maybe the Boba movie will deliver unto us a more western movie feel (Aren't most of those a lovely shade of brown as well, which seems to be a popular aesthetic nowadays?)

And probably follow up on Beckett's casual mention of killing a bounty hunter, because continuity or something

I'm looking forward to the mockery of Boba being a BAMF in a film, and then losing to a blind guy with a stick

Guaranteed a Lando movie would be centered around explaining the manuever he did at the battle of Tanaab.

It's a two and a half hour clothing commercial focusing primarily on half-capes and a tour through Lando's latest pad, and at the end of the film, the Empire comes in and busts up the place, so Lando is forced to flee to some Tibanna mining platform

In a Galaxy as large/diverse/advanced as the one Far Far Away, I'm reasonably sure there's plenty of...enhancements/substitutes/supplements for those lacking certain attributes

Darth Maul manages to carry a hate boner the size of a Super-Duper Star Destroyer against Obi-Wan and later Palpatine for...

+10-ish years after TPM...
+3-ish for Clone Wars...
+13-ish for Rebels...

A really long time

What's that?

A realistic battle involving the use of laser swords and the culmination of a (one-sided) rivalry lasting almost thirty years?

Preposterous

But aye, definitely one of the better closings of a character, especially if you've seen TCW and understand the meaning behind their actions

I also like that Obi-Wan developed a counter to the move that killed his master and baited Maul into using it

I know Grievous's coughing was meant to foreshadow Vader's sinister breathing. It came off as kind of goofy rather than creepy most of the time.

Obi-Wan making Grievous look like a massive dork every time they're on screen together was good fun, though.

And the lengths they went to keep Anakin and Grievous apart were quite amusing

Closest they ever got was in the unfinished, but still canon Utapau arc

I imagine the Maul cameo would've worked better had he remained shrouded like Sidious and you'd only recognize the voice, leaving new fans to speculate out the wazoo and those who kept up with the lore to raise our eyebrows and wonder how he got back into the underworld after Sidious cleaned house and crushed everything he owned

Granted, I guess that's better than imagining Maul pulling a Luke and living on Malachor for ~15 years before the Rebels came calling

It should be about Bubba Fett who's a borderline-incompetent space redneck who developed his feared marksmanship skills by shooting empty cans off a fence and goes, "Aw, shucks," when he accidentally disintegrates someone.

Boba Fett is in fact a terrible Bounty Hunter, but every time he goes out, he stumbles across another hunter who died on the way back with his bounty, so he takes credit for it

It's why he likes to work alone and he got his disintegration reputation because he did that to stop the first few living bounties from ratting him out
