We’ve dug into certain parts of Sam Witwer’s recent interview with Star Wars Holocron, where he spends a lot of time talking about Maul. Witwer has voiced this character for years and years, so he had a lot to say on the subject.
He spoke about the short scene at the end of Solo: A Star Wars Story, where Maul speaks to Qi’ra via hologram. According to Witwer, the scene had to go through reshoots to get it just right.
“There was a reshoot that had to happen because people like me and Dave Filoni were letting them know there were a lot of details that weren’t consistent,” he told SWH. “[There were] a lot of things in this script where he growls, he does this, he does that.”
Apparently, Witwer is sitting on a mountain of insider info regarding Maul. “There’s stories about Maul I won’t be able to tell for another 20 years…There’s just stories I can’t go anywhere near until about 20 years have passed and I think people are going to be very shocked when I eventually tell those stories. They’re related to all these things. All kinds of stuff.”
Twenty years is a long stretch, but if the stories are as good as he claims, they’ll be worth the wait!
