May the Fourth is just around the corner. Of course, this means a new round of rumors, news, and events, for the iconic franchise. Love it or hate it, Star Wars could arguably have one of the most divisive fan bases in the world. It also has another unique trait. Quite often, the villains, or anti-heroes, gain more popularity than expected. In turn, this leads to greater inclusion in other projects. The Mandalorian in itself is an example of that. This particular race was introduced via the brief scenes of bounty hunter Boba Fett. The fascination for this character, and race, has spawned a plethora of stories that led to the Disney+ show.

The latest rumor comes from another character who gained fame and then was gone. Darth Maul’s pivotal role in The Phantom Menace was another moment similar to Boba Fett’s. His character, though killed, went on to be featured in numerous other Star Wars projects. He’s continued to be seen on both the large and small screens. Whether coming back from the dead, seen in a flashback, or just a cameo, he has a way of popping up. Well, recently actor Ray Park has posted this cryptic image on Instagram.


His potential guest appearance in season two could easily be possible. Only last month, it was confirmed that Rosario Dawson had been cast as Ahsoka Tano. Yet another fan favorite, she too had dealings with the crimson Sith Lord.

News and events continue to roll out for season two of The Mandalorian. A behind-the-scenes special will stream on May 4th for the first season. Another recent announcement was about Michael Biehn taking on the role of another bounty hunter. That unnamed character has been reported as being from Mando’s past. The stage is set for potential flashbacks that could lead to guest spots for any number of known Star Wars characters.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
