As of today, I have begun work on my latest project. Maul will see the “Return of Darth Maul” arc from the Clone Wars TV Show reimagined into a feature length film. I imagine this edit as an anthology story on the same level as Rogue One or Solo, exploring a new side of the Star Wars universe. Darth Maul has always been a fan favorite and his episodes in TCW are among the best in the series, so I think this would make a great anthology.
I have not created a complete cutlist yet- in fact I am still in the process of selecting episodes. “Brothers” (which follows Savage Opress searching for Maul) will be the opening scene, followed by “Revenge”. I am considering inserting certain scenes from the Season 2 Mandalore to introduce the Mandalore situation. The bulk of the story will consist of the Shadow Collective Trilogy, but I question if the ending will need to be reworked (the Lawless abruptly ends with Maul’s capture, I feel a slower more emotionally satisfying ending starring Obi-Wan may be in order).
The WIP crawl (I’d like to make the color red instead of yellow):
The Clone War rages. Republic and Separatist forces vie for control of the Outer Rim.
Unbeknownst to both sides, the fallen Sith Darth Maul lingers on, fueled only by his hatred for Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Now, a dark acolyte voyages into the depths of a twisted planet to find the fallen Sith…
I am also unsure on the title. Maul will remain the working title for now, but I have several other possible titles in mind:
–Son of Dathomir
–Shades of Reason
–The Shadow Collective
–The Rule of Two (a reference to Sidious’s statement in the finale)
–The Shadow Reborn
I may end up creating more Clone Wars movie edits, but for now I’d like to focus on this one. You could think of this as a spiritual successor to smudger9’s Clone Wars edits but know that I am not restricting myself to his continuity. I have also made sure that this edit is not too similar to herekittykitty’s clone wars ep 2. I will keep this thread updated with the latest information and if you have any questions I’d be happy to answer them.
