Followers of the Clone Wars series have known for months that Darth Maul was teased last season as brother of Savage Opress. With the return Episode I to theatres in 2012, Lucasfilm is cashing in on the obvious tie-in and is announcing that Maul will at last be revealing himself to the Jedi (again, and shirtless) in the Clone Wars in 2012. We don’t yet know how he managed to survive being defeated by Obi-Wan but one thing’s for sure, it will make for some interesting episodes. Head to USA Today and Entertainment Weekly for their exclusive reports on the news.
