Lucasfilm Releases Publicity Stills From THAT 'Solo' Cameo (SPOILER)

Lucasfilm has given Star Wars fans an early treat, ahead of the digital release of Solo: A Star Wars Story this Friday.

Promotional stills of a particular character who had a cameo in the film have been released - of course, spoilers apply, so check them out after the jump, if you dare to!

As we all now know, Darth Maul made a shocking cameo in Solo, and in a nice nod to the fans, Ray Park returned to play the former Sith apprentice. Even better, actor Sam Witwer, who voiced Maul in "Star Wars: Rebels" and "Star Wars:The Clone Wars," also returned to provide the voice.

In an interview with Forbes, Ray Park explained how the cameo of Darth Maul came about.

"I found out last June/July when we were in Guatemala," he tells me, a time which, unbeknownst to him, coincided with Howard stepping into the director's chair. "I got the phone call from Lynne Hale from Lucasfilm. And it was really nice of her, because she said to me 'Ray, we're just calling to see if you would like to do it.' And I went [inhales slowly] 'Yeah. Do you want me on the plane now?'” He ended up filming in October, towards the end of production.

The new images from Lucasfilm show Maul's robotic legs, which were not seen in the film. Check them out here:

The latest episode of "The Star Wars Show" even featured Witwer discussing the scene.
