Darth Maul to Appear in Multiple Star Wars Series Including Solo Show with Qi’ra

Star Wars fans were meet with devastating news yesterday when Disney announced that Lucasfilm's theatrical releases had all been pushed back a year. The House of Mouse decided to delay Lucasfilm's highly-anticipated Star Wars movies, setting the films up for Dec. 23, 2023, Dec. 19. 2025, and DC. 17, 2027.

However, as devastating as this news might be, there's a new report circulating saying that Lucasfilm has big plans for its Disney+ projects.

According to The Direct, Lucasfilm is planning to have a couple of Solo: A Star Wars Story characters appear in multiple live-action Star Wars series for Disney+. Sources have told the entertainment news site that Lucasfilm is planning to have Darth Maul pop up in a number of Disney+ projects, including his own solo live-action series.

Young Han Solo's (Alden Ehrenreich) former love interest, Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke) is also going to feature prominently in this alleged Darth Maul series. Though Lucasfilm has yet to confirm the report, The Direct says that this new Maul live-action series is going to focus on the Crimson Dawn. Qi'Ra's participation in the show suggests that the project may very well be a continuation of the narrative set up by Solo as Maul continues to expand his syndicate in the underbelly of Star Wars galaxy far, far away.

Aside from his own series, it's likely for Maul to appear in Star Wars' upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi. There have also been rumors of a young Lando Calrissian series with Donald Glover reprising the role that he played in Solo. We could also see Maul there.

Of course, as exciting as this news might sound, we'll have to wait for Lucasfilm to confirm the report. Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope that the studio pushes through with this Darth Maul series.
