Ray Park made his return to the galaxy far, far away this past week, reprising his Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace role as Darth Maul to provide motion capture for the big duel between the former Sith and fan-favourite character Ahsoka Tano in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode ‘The Phantom Apprentice’ [read our review of the episode here].
Thanks to the official Star Wars YouTube channel, we now have a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the duel with a featurette that includes comments from showrunner Dave Filoni and footage of Park and stunt performer Lauren Mary Kim as Maul and Ahsoka. Watch it here…
Ahsoka leads Republic clones to confront Maul’s forces on Mandalore, while Maul senses the impending chaos and makes a calculated play to ensure his own survival in “The Phantom Apprentice.”
