Darth Maul Disney+ Show Will Explore the Villain’s Backstory



The idea that Ray Park would return as Darth Maul in Solo: A Star Wars Story is the sort of wild theory that would’ve got you laughed off social media before the Anthology movie hit theaters, and yet there he was, in all his red-and-black glory in a moment that shocked just about everyone. Especially those who weren’t aware of the character’s journey since being sliced in half in The Phantom Menace.

But ever since that surprise return, some fans have been calling for more Maul, with Park even admitting that he has tons of cool ideas for where to take the villain next. And though Lucasfilm is keeping characteristically quiet on what lies ahead for him, We Got This Covered reports that a Disney+ series is being prepped behind the scenes, one which will explore the fan favorite much more in depth.

It’s still unclear exactly when we may see it premiere, but the site reports the project is still in early development and will explore and flesh out Maul’s backstory via flashbacks.
