↠ Darth Maul quotes from The Phantom Menace

Darth Maul quotes from The Phantom Menace

There's some pretty history about the character of Darth Maul.

While Ray Park is  very famous for 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. Del Toro eventually turned up in The Last Jedi as DJ.

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 Sidious (Palpatine)

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

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

Extra fact for experts: Darth Maul has ten horns on his red head


  1. What about that scene where Darth Maul said "yes my lord" when visiting the trade federation?

  2. (When Amidala returns to Theed)

    Darth Sidious: Lord Maul, be mindful, let them make the first move.

    Darth Maul: Yes, my master

    (So that makes it three lines)

    1. And despite it being like Palpatine's one instruction, he decides to make the first move... twice. You'd think that a guy who hardly talks would be listening more.
