Lucasfilm has been promoting Darth Maul, the now two-pieced Sith Lord, from SW:Ep. I - The Phantom Menace would be appearing on The Clone Wars animated series. This will take place in the two-part (no pun intended) season finale beginning tonight with the episode titled 'Brothers'.

Last week I had the opportunity to visit Lucasfilm to watch the entire season finale, and I have to say....they pulled it off brilliantly.
The series has already set up the knowledge that Savage Opress has a brother, that being Darth Maul, and he is on a quest to find out what happened to him after being diced by Obi-Wan. Tonight's episode follows Savage on this journey and pays off the question, "How on earth are they going to do this?" I won't tell you how, but it is believable in the realms of The Clone Wars series, and the Star Wars universe.
