It’s admittedly fairly cynical, Episode I‘s iconic bad guy returns from the dead (with cyborg legs, obviously) just as George Lucas has a film to push at the cinema – Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace 3D, but who the Hoth cares? It looks awesome, and killing him off in the first place was a dreadful idea.
Season Four of Star Wars: The Clone Wars continues 9 March 2012 in the US, returning to the spectacular arc teased in Season Three.
The official blurb says, “After being used as a weapon of vengeance by Count Dooku and Asajj Ventress, the dark warrior Savage Opress embarked on a galaxy-spanning quest to find his long-lost brother, the legendary Darth Maul. Maul lives in the depths of a ruined world as a shattered madman barely held together by dreams of vengeance. Savage conspires with the scheming witch Mother Talzin to heal Darth Maul’s body and mind, so that the brothers can begin a new crusade of vengeance against the Jedi.”
