If you've seen the third season of Star Wars Rebels, you already know what happened during the final duel between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul. But is it possible that there's a different side to the story? There are speculations that Disney+'s Obi-Wan Kenobi series will revisit the brief yet memorable fight. Interestingly, there's a chance we'll get to see how it went down from Maul's point of view.

In Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Episode 20, Ezra Bridger and Chopper decided to go to Tatooine to warn Obi-Wan that Maul was coming to kill him. However, when they finally meet up with the Jedi, he simply tells them he has no plans of leaving the planet or helping the Rebellion. Once Maul arrives, Old Ben makes sure that Ezra and Chopper escape before facing off against his former opponent. Upon defeating Maul, Obi-Wan tells the former Sith Lord that he is watching over someone he believes to be the chosen one.

The final duel may have been unsatisfying for some Star Wars fans who were hoping for a longer fight. On the other hand, others believe that the scene gave them exactly what they needed without drawing out the duel. But what exactly was Maul thinking before he decided to take on his old nemesis? There is a possibility that this could be explored in the upcoming Obi-Wan series.


There have already been speculations that Maul will show up in the Star Wars show although this has not yet been confirmed. Nevertheless, fans are hoping that Maul will play a huge role in the series. For now, it's best to keep in mind that this has not yet been officially announced by Disney or Lucasfilm so you should take it with a grain of salt.
