Darth Maul, the villain from Star Wars’ Episode I – The Phantom Menace is getting his time in the spotlight in a new fan-made film released on YouTube by T7 Production.
“Darth Maul: Apprentice – A Star Wars Film” was written, directed, and edited by Shawn Bu, while Vi-Dan Tran worked on the impressive choreography.
“We worked incredibly hard on this film for almost two years,” read a statement attached to the film. “We always felt that Darth Maul should have had more screen time. So we wanted to create a film just for him with the best lightsaber fights we could do!”
Ben Schamma portrays the Sith apprentice in the project, paying tribute to the character who was slain by Obi-wan Kenobi in The Phantom Menace. Ray Park portrayed the original character in George Lucas’ film, while Peter Serafinowicz lent his voice.
