On September 11th 2012, a special 88-minuet directors cut of the 4-part Darth Maul arc from season 4 of “The Clone Wars,” will be coming to DVD exclusively at Target stores! Here is the official announcement from Lucasfilm:
Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Darth Maul Returns
Exclusive 88-minute Directors cut
[blockquote cite=]The dramatic return of Darth Maul has been one of the most talked about developments in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and the evil Sith Lord will continue to wreak havoc in the forthcoming Season Five of the animated series. Witness his resurrection in a special feature-length Directors’ Cut presentation of his animated debut, coming exclusively to DVD at Target stores on September 11th.[/blockquote]
Watching the whole Darth Maul arc cut together as one feature length presentation sounds like a great way to watch these episodes! But since this set won’t be released on Blu-Ray, those wondering if the complete season 4 Blu-Ray set will contain the directors cut of these episodes, it has been confirmed in the latest issue of Star Wars Insider that the season 4 Blu-Ray set will include several directors cut episodes, including some from the Darth Maul arc. Though I don’t believe the episodes will be edited together as one feature length presentation like this DVD set will.
This DVD set looks to be a great way to kick off a month of great Clone Wars action, as we eagerly await the season premiere on September 29th!
