Darth Maul was never in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, reveals director Deborah Chow

Not too long ago, a report crossed the internet claiming that Darth Maul had been cut from the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. The story was so important that we even released a feature that explains why Star Wars needs to bring Maul back. However, Deborah Chow, who directed all six Obi-Wan Kenobi episodes, is here to set the record straight.

“As long as I’ve been involved, we’ve never had Darth Maul in any of this,” she told Total Film in the new issue of the magazine, which features Obi-Wan Kenobi on the cover. “David [Filoni] You’ve already done a great job telling this story.

Maul’s story ended in Filoni’s Star Wars animated series, with the horned devil from The Phantom Menace being defeated by Obi-Wan (again) during the events of Rebels. In fact, Chow says that although he took ideas from the early development of the project, which began as a movie, Maul was never in the conversation.

“For anyone trying to tell a story in the middle of these two trilogies, there were only certain elements that made sense where [Obi-Wan] is,” he says, adding that while Maul couldn’t make the cut, neither could Darth Vader.

“With many aspects carried over from the past, the decision to include Vader in it was not made lightly. We are 10 years into Revenge Of The Sith. Where is Obi-Wan’s starting point? What was important to him?” him in his life? Anakin and “Vader is a huge and very deep part of his life. We ended up feeling like it made sense to tell this story. And Vader casts such a dark shadow there that having Maul as well is maybe too much.”

In the cover story of the new issue of Total Film magazine, Ewan McGregor, Darth Vader actor Hayden Christensen, co-star Moses Ingram, and Chow talk in depth about Obi-Wan and his new adventure.
