It’s hard to believe this is a fan-made video.

A clip explores the background of Darth Maul, featured in “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace” and one of the film’s few bright spots.

The 17-minute, viral clip features some impressive special effects and lightsaber work.

The makers of the clip, T7Pro, said they worked “incredibly hard on this film” for nearly two years.

“We always felt that Darth Maul should have had more screen time. So we wanted to create a film just for him with the best lightsaber fights we could do,” the description reads.

The story based on any of “Star Wars” books or movies, the filmmakers said.
