Like myself, true Star Wars fans know what really happened after Obi-wan Kenobi cut Darth Maul in half and sent him plummeting down a port shaft. And now the Clone Wars TV series has found a way to bring him back from his early grave.

The last time anyone heard from Darth Maul, was when he showed up at the Lars farmstead with robot hips and legs, huge horns, and a desire to kill Obi-Wan, but it didn't end wellEntertainment Weekly is now reporting that Maul will be making an appearance in the Clone Wars, and hopefully they'll explain better how exactly he survived. If you want to see a quick shot of the Clone Wars' CG rendering of the evil Sith assassin, check out this video.

Clone Wars supervising director Dave Filoni explained to EW that while Maul is back, they're keeping this character's journey under wraps (he did hint that the Sith will probably be pretty pissed at Obi-Wan, clearly).

"Here, we're moving forward with Maul," Filoni says. "He's more than ten years older than he was in The Phantom Menace. That's immensely satisfying, because now nobody knows what's going to happen to him. I know, but nobody else does."
