After an emotional and exciting season three premiere, the crew is back together again—just in time to face another familiar adversary! When Maul returns and takes the crew of the Ghost hostage, it’s up to Ezra and Kanan to join forces and recover an ancient Sith artifact to save them.
Ezra first met Maul six months ago on the planet Malachor.
“I think he arrived on Malachor and was trapped there,” said executive producer Dave Filoni in a StarWars.com interview. “His ship broke down and he was stranded on this largely lifeless planet and was tortured by the fact that he was so close to obtaining the ultimate power, the Sith holocron.”
Having lost the holocron to Ezra and Kanan, Maul would do just about anything to get it back, and that includes putting the Ghost crew in harm’s way. We know he desperately needs the Sith holocron because it’ll bring about the end of his enemies. He also still sees Ezra as an apprentice, so he’ll also want to lure him back to his side, but what other plans does he have in mind?
One thing’s for sure, there’s no trusting Maul, so I hope Ezra doesn’t repeat the same mistakes.
“Holocrons of Fate” will premiere on Saturday, October 1, 2016, at 8:30pm EST on Disney XD.
