(WARNING: The following contains some fairly strong potential plot SPOILERS for at least one future episode of Star Wars Rebels, albeit of the kind that every single commercial for the show will absolutely reveal to you. As Yoda so sagely advised Taylor Swift that one time, however, say I did not say I did not warn you, do not.)

Now, of all the titanic match-ups in history, there are few more loaded with emotional turmoil than that between and back in . Sure, Luke and Vader's battles were filled with familial angst, and Obi-Wan and Anakin certainly brought "it" whenever they faced off against one another, but for sheer, visceral rage, there's really no beating Obi-Wan's reaction to the death of his mentor at the hands of Darth Maul, or his eventual defeat of the twin-bladed Sith apprentice.

Which, of course, makes it all the more exciting that in just a few short weeks time, we're set to see the two face off once again, in March 18's episode of . The best part of all of that, though?

And, because that's exactly the sort of thing we all need to be able to look at on loop for at least half a minute or so, you can do so just below:

With the pair seemingly fated to face off once again in just a few months time, y'see, the internet has wasted no time in isolating their impending conflict from its original TV spot source, thus allowing us all to bask in its nerdy, nerdy glory.

Just how the battle will go down, of course, remains something of a mystery. With Obi-Wan still having to go on to face down Darth Vader on the Death Star, we know that he'll survive — but whether or not Maul makes it out alive very much remains to be seen. What's more, if he does indeed make it out in one piece, you can very much expect those "Darth Maul is Snoke" theories to gain a new lease of life.

Either way, though, it's set to be one hell of a show.

What do you think, though? Do you think Obi-Wan will finally kill Maul? Let us know below!
