Most Star Wars fans agree that Darth Maul was one of the standout characters of the prequels, but we just didn’t get enough of him. This fan film goes some way to rectifying the problem.
The incredibly talented folk at T7 Productions have created a truly wonderful and inspired short film that showcases the moment that Darth Maul faces is final test to becoming a Sith Lord.
Lured by the Emperor to a remote location a group of Jedi are confronted by the apprentice Darth Maul. Greatly outnumbered the follower of the dark side must use his cunning, determination and skill to even the odds one-by-one. Fans of Darth Maul will have their craving for detailed fight scenes with the ‘double ender’ lightsaber well and truly satiated.
Rich and vibrant colouring, fantastic sets, incredible CGI, wonderful casting, costume design and simply stunning choreography all add up to probably the best Star Wars fan film to date.
Ben Schamma portrays Darth Maul with flattering accuracy both in look and demeanour with attention paid to Maul’s fighting style as seen in Episode I: The Phantom Menace where the character was played menacingly by Ray Park.
The film was written, directed, edited and produced by rising star Shawn Bu. Surely this man has a glowing career ahead of him!
