Yep, That’s Darth Maul All Right

Yesterday, Lucasfilm announced the return of Darth Maul to the Star Wars universe — specifically, Clone Wars — as if it was the culmination of 10 years of fan demand, and not just an incredibly mercenary decision to help promote The Phantom Menace in 3-D. After I mentioned it, Lucas and Cartoon Network released this promo video for the news, which is unintentionally hilarious. Let’s see.. the video is overhyped, overwrought, and the resurrected Darth Maul gets literally three seconds of screen time? Yep, that’s the most devastatingly accurate Darth Maul promo anyone could possibly make.
