Darth Maul: Apprentice is the Star Wars Fan Film You’ve Been Looking For

The T7pro YouTube channel has released an excellent Star Wars fan film featuring Darth Maul, the grossly underutilized Sith Lord from the troublesome Star Wars prequel films. The short, which clocks in at ~ 17-minutes, is titled, “Darth Maul: Apprentice,” and it showcases Maul’s last major challenge before Palpatine considers his training to be complete.

I’ll let you experience the tale for yourself, but in terms of this short’s overall production value I can say that it’s extremely impressive. The VFX work stands out for sure, especially the opening shot of Maul in his lair, and the shots of space with the Jedi’s ship making an approach to its destination. The action is also shot quite well, so this is definitely a well done fan film set in the beloved Star Wars universe.

Head on up above to check it out.
