Ever since the Witches of Dathomir episodes last season on The Clone Wars, fans have been wondering whether that hazy image reminiscent of Darth Maul was indeed the real deal. Well according to Entertainment Weekly, it is.

“I found it funny in The Phantom Menace when Darth Maul got cut in half, I thought George was definitively saying to the fans, ‘There’s no way this character is coming back. This is not a Boba Fett/Sarlacc Pit situation where, because of fan love, Boba gets out of that thing any number of ways.’ Fast-forward ten-years, and I’m the one to bring Maul back.” -Dave Filoni

They even have a very short video that shows some new animation of Darth Maul (jump to 00:26). According to the article, George was behind the resurrection of Maul and Dave has been left with the challenge of how to explain Maul’s survival and what impact it will have on the other characters. As for the how, Dave hints that it could be related to the unnatural abilities of the dark side. Regardless, this is big news and is sure to stir up the fanbase.

UPDATE: USA Today also has an article out there for Maul’s return, including a new image of the animated model. Check it out.
