Great, thank you :D .
If its the guy from Rebels, that'll be Sam Witwer.

Loved how they left that scene. Is Qi'ra a Sith?
Didn't she say to Han that she'd "done things" to survive.........hopefully we'll find out in a sequel.

Need to see it again, but im not sure it was as good as R1 but it was much better than TFA and TLJ. Seeing Maul back was horseshit and I think that was very strange. That in itself leaves a lot to ask of the PT.

It was a good film :)

Was it definitely Darth Maul? I thought the horns looked a bit different but I could be wrong. Could it have been another of his kind?

Seeing Maul back was absolutely awesome if you've watched The Clone Wars and Rebels! He has big story arcs in both ;) Definitely Maul- played by Ray Park, voiced by the same guy from the cartoons and he was complete with his metal legs ;)

Id assume that was age taking its toll. Poor bloke was cut in half, then he started to age.

Poor little fella. :D

Only because I'm sad enough to sit there and watch the end credits :lol: :lol: On a side note, it was someone else who voiced Maul, not Ray Park who played Maul. I can't remember the name?

I just got back and did enjoy it I don't have time to write a full review but I have skimmed through the reviews here and I'm surprised more people are not questioning the maul appearance. Surely if he was cut in half in the phantom menace and leia was not born untill around 20 years later this would have made Han 40-45 in a new hope. I didn't watch clones so don't know what part he played in that but I can't see how the timelines work.

Han Solo - The Jimmy Saville of Star Wars. i always wondered why he cut the Tauntauns belly the way he did. He also nearly fell into a huge fanny in the desert and went blind :D

So would that have been Maul 10 years after he was sliced?? Say Han is 17-20 in Solo plus the 10-years? Anakin was 9 in TPM so I think that's why he looked different, I'm convinced his horns looked a different colour so that would explain it.
Leaves Han around 28-30 when Luke is born and is 19 when they meet Han. Yeah I can see where you are getting those numbers from. In a new hope Han was 29? I'm even confusing myself now :lol: I think I'll just leave it and sit back and enjoy the adventures :D

Just got back, really enjoyed it. Have to admit I was wrong, I wasn’t expecting it to work and had concerns about the casting but overall I thought it was great. Very enjoyable, I hope it does well. Actually totally suprised how much I enjoyed it as my expectations were so low.

Timelines, by my (probably wrong!) reckoning:

TPM 32 BBY Anakin = 9yrs, Maul sliced

ROTS 19 BBY Anakin = 22yrs Luke/Leia = 0 yrs

Solo 13-10 BBY, Luke/Leia = 6-9 yrs, Han = 19- 22 yrs, Maul appears 22 yrs after being sliced

Star Wars 0 BBY, Luke/Leia = 19 yrs, Han = 32 yrs

I don't see a problem with the timeline at all. Unless I'm being immensely thick, which isn't out of the equation :lol:

Disney will not kill someone out of sinc with the time line they will keep it just about sane!

Don’t forget in the first ever Star Wars film Kenobi died and carried on talking to Luke after. Then in ESB Kenobi appears as a ghost and tells Luke what to do. I think we would all agree these are probably the best two Star Wars films to date, so what’s the problem with Darth Maul being alive?...

Ben Kenobi was clearly a force ghost maul wasn't and if he was Wye did he not appear in the room instead of a hologram. It was my only issue with the movie I enjoyed it over all I know a lot of people liked the maul scene personally I don't think it fits or was necessary.
