Future episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars will reveal a new villain that reveals major secrets of the sith and Darth Maul. The baddie, Savage Opress, will be revealed in 2010 at special screenings that you can attend. Here’s more info from StarWars.com:
For the first time ever, Sith training will be explored – and with it, truths about the very nature of the dark side itself!
A warrior forged by a dark sorcery as mystical and powerful as the Force, Opress will uncover shocking revelations about the galaxy’s tenuous balance of power, including secrets about one of the Sith’s most infamous villains — Episode I’s Darth Maul! From his origins to his fate, Maul’s mysteries will at long last be uncovered…
I haven’t been watching The Clone Wars, but several friends tell me that it’s really good. I also liked Darth Maul in Episode I, but a lot of that had to do with him being a mysterious character that didn’t say or reveal much (you know, the Boba Fett ploy). I’m intersted and a little afraid to learn about his origins. That said, I’ll definitely be tuning in to see if his background is any good.
How about you? Are you interested in learning more about Darth Maul, the sith, and Savage Opress?
