The prequel films Star Wars Episodes 1 to 3 are certainly among the most controversial films of the past 20 years. There are many fans who love these films, but also numerous representatives on the other side of the emotional spectrum. How heated would the discussions have been if George Lucas had implemented one of his original ideas for a specific character from the prequels? Two characters would then have been one and the same person.
Darth Maul als General Grievous?
The focus is on the character of General Grievous, who made his impressive debut in Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones. It is the remains of an unknown life form that was in the body of a robot. As author Henry Gilroy explained in a recent interview with Slash Film magazine, at a certain point in production George Lucas had interesting plans for Grievous: Under his mask would be Darth Maul, who was killed in Star Wars Episode 1.
“George had figured that Maul was behind Grievous’ armor. That made sense: he was cut in half and then he’s stuck in this robotic body or something.
But I’m glad that Grievous was something in its own right. I think it was interesting though that some of the concept guys almost talked George into doing it.”

The new Star Wars series about the Sith stars an actor from the Netflix hit Squid Game alongside a Marvel star.
As we all know, this kind of dual role never happened. General Grievous was killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi during the course of Star Wars Episode 2, but played a very prominent role in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. However, the fans didn’t really get to know much about his background story and his actual origins there either. However, Darth Maul was definitely not in that robotic body.
