It definitely helps explain why Kenobi was able to fight evenly with Vader in ANH. I kind of expected this to happen since the new canon seems to have Vader as a top tier force user.

Maul thought he was facing an old, crippled hermit and nothing more, so I don't think he really expected anything impressive skill-wise from Kenobi.

The fight is more symbolic of Maul's stagnation and how he clings to the past, while Kenobi has moved on, both mentally and in a dueling-sense. Ben and Maul's face-off is more exclusive to them and their past and growth (or lack thereof) as characters. Using it to start saying "ya lol maul is fodder even ___ can beat him" or "ben can stomp malgus now" is really just ridiculous.


Pathetic.

Props to feloni and disney

You need to see a doctor. I fear for your sanity.

When have I ever ignored continuity ?? You people and your ignorance is very troubling. If you ask nicely I can explain everything for the mongoloids. Gather round but be polite and ask NICELY.

It was just bad promotion and storytelling tbh. I mean seriously who enjoyed that fight except for Maul haters?

At least you got exactly what you wanted dude thumb up


But hey even for Kenobi's no.1 fan, this would have meant a thousand times more if not for that Kanan vs Maul crapfest.
