Darth Maul Goes Viral With Fan Film ‘DARTH MAUL: Apprentice’

Star Wars fans still love the best part of the prequels, Darth Maul. Production company T7pro, based out of Germany released a 17-minute fan film DARTH MAUL: Apprentice on Saturday, the short has 900,000 views as of Monday morning and growing.

We worked incredibly hard on this film for almost two years! We always felt that Darth Maul should have had more screen time. So we wanted to create a film just for him with the best lightsaber fights we could do! This is not based on any books, comics, etc. – T7pro

DARTH MAUL: Apprentice is written and directed by Shawn Bu. The film stars Ben Schamma as Darth Maul, Mathis Landwehr, Svenja Jung, Eskindir, Maja Felicitas, Paul Cless, Sefa Demirbas, Dirk Chwialkowsky, Stina Amedick, Khoa Huyhn, and Lee Hua.

The film was shot on Shot on RED Dragon, RED Epic, Blackmagic 4K, Blackmagic URSA and DJI Phantom 3 which means you can watch DARTH MAUL: Apprentice in 4K on Youtube.


Will Bu’s hard work influence Disney and Lucasfilm to produce a Darth Maul solo adventure?
