We waited 16 years…for this?
And then there was Jar Jar Binks.
What was George Lucas thinking?
Yeah, that’s what he was thinking.
The Phantom Menace is now 20 years old. I’m glad George sold the rights to Disney, and I’m glad JJ Abrams gave us The Force Awakens in 2015 and will bring us The Rise of Skywalker later this year. Let’s not talk about The Last Jedi. Ever. Please. Thank you.
Yeah, he got sliced in half by Obi-Wan Kenobi in The Phantom Menace after he thrust his lightsaber through Qui Gon Jinn’s stomach…but that doesn’t mean he’s dead.
George Lucas is bringing back Darth Maul to The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network. It will be interesting to see how he explains Maul’s escape from death. Or rather to read about how he explains it…because I don’t actually watch the show.
I’m a huge fan of the movies, all six of them (yes, even TPM). And I like the older spin-offs…”Droids” and “Ewoks” cartoons, and the made-for-TV Ewok movies. But the current The Clone Wars stuff, I just never got into it.
But since I do like Darth Maul, maybe this is George’s way of pulling me in.
Here’s the teaser trailer for The Clone Wars 2012.
