However, it was instead adapted into a four-issue comic book by Jeremy Barlow, entitled Star Wars: Darth Maul—Son of Dathomir.[5]

Michnovetz also started working for LucasArts in 2008, and did some work on the canceled game Star Wars: 1313.[6]

Michnovetz also wrote several episodes of Star Wars Rebels beginning in its second season, with his first episode being "The Lost Commanders."[7] He also wrote the story of the 2019 video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order together with Aaron Contreras and Stig Asmussen. The team was nominated for the 16th British Academy Games Awards in the category "Narrative."[8]
