DARTH MAUL: Apprentice is a new and really well made fan film that just hit YouTube and it’s really worth 18 minutes of your time. If you’re anything like me, Darth Maul was one character I wished had a bigger role than he did in Episode 1. I remember seeing him advertised for the first time and it really made me excited for E1 but after watching the film I left really disappointed. Maul’s look and his unique dual lightsaber made him a character that should have been explored much more than he was. At any rate, this fan film from writer, director and producer Shawn Bu is really a fun watch, so check it out below!
We worked incredibly hard on this film for almost 2 years! 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! This is not based on any books, comics etc. MAKING OF coming soon!
Two years of work for just over 17 minutes of footage, that is huge dedication and heart. Really love the effects and cinematography and I love that Darth Maul was center stage. Looking forward to seeing Bu’s follow-up MAKING OF for this film soon.
