My Letter of Complaint to Dave Filoni


Today I heard a terrible thing- Darth Maul will make an appearance on Star Wars: The Clone Wars (which shouldn't happen but then, we all know how much FUN Dave Filoni has with botching up canon). So, I decided to write a letter of complaint to him to show my disappointment.
It is as follows.


To Mr. Dave Filoni,

I've been a huge Star Wars fan for years( of the movies, books, t,v. show, and games) and its pretty much been my life since I was nine. And for the last three years or so, I've enjoyed watching Star Wars: The Clone Wars. I loved many of the episodes, including the Mortis Trilogy, the Citadel trilogy, the brain worm episodes, and the majority of season one. However, I have become extremely disappointed in the direction the t.v show has taken. Since Star Wars is my favorite story in the whole world, it has upset me to see these things take place in this T.V show(which is my favorite t.v show, by the way). At first it was little things that I didn't mind too much but once season 2 rolled around, these things became bigger. The first problem dealt with the Mandalore Arc and the character of Satine whom I feel shouldn't even exist(due to events that happened in "Secrets of the Jedi"). Even though this upset me, I continued to watch the show(I just skipped those three episodes). Another thing dealt with killing off a character who was supposed to die later on(Even Piell).
But, recently, I have been hearing rumors(which appear to be actually true) about Darth Maul making an appearance in Star Wars: the Clone Wars. The problem is this: Darth Maul died in The Phantom Menace. And since the movies override everything, including the t.v show, this doesn't make sense. Also, the fact that Darth Maul is still alive is extremely far-fetched. I mean, no one, not even a Sith, can survive being cut in half, sent tumbling down a deep pit, and crashing into what ever is at the bottom far, far below.
Even if he survived being cut in half the impact would break every bone in his body, killing him. Another thing about this appearance of Darth Maul is the fact that, when Obi-Wan beat Darth Maul, he was the first Jedi to defeat a Sith in over a thousand years; something I have always thought was so amazing. It was his moment of glory that didn't include anyone else but him. Not Anakin, not Qui-Gon, just Obi-Wan, who I feel deserves something. He is an extremely powerful Jedi and deserves to be remembered as somebody apart from his Apprentice and his Master. Really, without Obi-Wan, nothing would have worked out as they did. I really, really hope this is just a rumor, but it doesn't look like it(from pictures and quotes that have went viral on line). So, if Darth Maul comes back I will just have to STOP watching the show and boycott everything related to it. I'm sorry, I wish I didn't have to but since you aren't going to stay true to the story I have no choice but to do this.
Oh, and if Darth Maul DOES come back, Obi-Wan should beat him- with no help what-so-ever.

From,

  1. i don't completly understand why he's coming back. i mean the guy was cut in half. what the heck. maybe he'll come back as a cybrog like grevious. but it still doesn't make any sense how he survived. if does come back let obi-wan deal w/him once again. epic battle scene. :)

    p.s. i'm aalya by the way.
