Darth Maul quotes from The Phantom Menace

Darth Maul quotes from The Phantom Menace

While Ray Park is famous as playing the Sith Lord, Peter Serafinowicz actually voiced the character. This is very similar to the David Prowse / James Earl Jones combo for the original trilogy.

The Usual Suspect, Benicio Del Toro was originally cast to play Darth Maul but he abandoned the role after George Lucas decided to trim Darth Maul's screen time in the film. This trimming of the role means that Darth Maul only speaks two lines in the whole movie for a total of 31 words.

That's right, Darth Maul only says 31 words in The Phantom Menace. That's 27 words less than the 58 words Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke in the Terminator!

Here's Darth Maul's conversation with Darth Sideous (Palpatine)

Darth Maul: Tatooine is sparsely populated. If the homing trace is correct, I will find them quickly, Master.

Darth Sideous: Move against the Jedi first. You will then have no difficulty in taking the Queen back to Naboo to sign the treaty.

Darth Maul: At last we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi. At last we will have revenge.

Darth Sideous: You have been well trained my young apprentice. They will be no match for you.
