Star Wars Celebration surely has something for every type of Star Wars fan, even those who love the prequel trilogy. Earlier this week, we reported that select Star Wars Celebration panels and events will be streamed live to the fans, and the second live stream for today celebrates martial artist/actor Ray Park, who played Sith warrior Darth Maul in 1999's Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. We'll have to see what the actor has in store for the Celebration crowd, but at least you can see it live right here, with the panel running from 11:30 AM PT to 12:30 PM PT.
Before he became the iconic Sith Darth Maul, Ray Park was an internationally-renowned martial artist, holding a second-degree black belt in Wushu. After serving as a martial arts adviser to the stunt coordinator on Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, and also playing one of the Reptiles, he landed the role of Darth Maul in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. Given his background in martial arts, he was even allowed to develop his own fight choreography for Darth Maul. After his breakthrough role, he went on to star in X-Men as Toad, and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and G.I. Joe Retaliation as Snake Eyes.
What do you think Ray Park will discuss during this panel? Do you think they should bring him back for this new trilogy? There is still much we don't know about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and the sequels and spinoffs that will follow, so perhaps there may still be a place in the Star Wars universe for this talented martial artist. Take a look at the video player below to watch the live stream of Ray Park's panel from Star Wars Celebration.
