“Mark Hamill has been a part of the Star Wars universe since the very beginning and, while much has changed over the past 40 years, the one character Hamill wish got bigger play was Darth Maul.
Speaking to reporters at D23, Disney’s convention in Anaheim, California, Hamill said he always thought Darth Maul was one of the coolest villains, adding that he was surprised when the Sith Lord was cut in half by Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace.
“Darth Maul was just the coolest looking,” Hamill said. “I couldn’t believe they disposed of him so quickly. I thought he would last through all three movies!””
