Star Wars Clone Wars – Darth Maul Tidbits
Actor Sam Witwer is going from bloodsucker to Star Wars: Clone Wars‘ Darth Maul. You probably recognize him as Aidan from Syfy’s series Being Human. Many fans are seeing him, or at least hearing him, in a whole new light, however. Get your light saber ready. You’re going to need it.
EW had the news confirming Witwer, who just so happened to voice “The Son” on The Clone Wars’ third season as well as Darth Vader’s super secret apprentice, “Starkiller”, in The Force Unleashed videogames, is coming back for more evil in the universe. Who better to voice Darth Maul?
Previously, on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, on the last episode, titled “Brothers”, it was revealed that Darth Maul wasn’t actually dead. Yes, we all saw Obi-Wan Kenobi cut the black and red faced villain in half, the Dark Side is a mysterious place. Maul has been in hiding on the garbage planet, Lotho Minor. He isn’t exactly the same man he used to be, either. Let’s just say if you are afraid of spider, Maul is the creepiest villain you’re likely to encounter in the Star Wars mythos. His mind doesn’t seem to be all there either. Que the scary music now!
Do you buy into the return of Maul? Here is how Witwer himself explained the unlikely phenomenon. “The Sith don’t really look at death as a natural progression — they look at death as a defeat — so some of them hold onto their lives against all reasoning,” he said. “They’re so egotistical that some of them don’t let go.”
To prepare for the villainous voice acting role Witwer said he “Certainly watched Phantom Menace. And also this terrific music video promo that Peter Serafinowicz narrated, none of which ended up in the film. Then I read the comic book series where he goes after the Black Sun, and also just read a whole bunch of stuff on Wookieepedia.” There you have it. Should be great stuff to watch. And yes, I’m dying to see an Obi-Wan rematch, too.
