He didn't survive the fall. He is a clone. You are confused.
Beyond that, every universe has it's own rules.
Star Wars has started doing the cheesy Days of Our Lives thing where they bring back dead characters with some flimsy excuse. "Why Marley, I thought you died when you fell down that elevator shaft?" to which the writers come up with some utter bullshit to justify bringing back a fan favourite instead of actually writing something new?
They've done this again with Darth Maul and others.
It creates a problem: death is now meaningless in a saga about life and death.
Is Han Solo still alive? Probably.
What about Anakin?
The series is meaningless now.
But, that's just one problem with the plots of the sequel films.
All three individual plots are garbage, particularly 8 & 9.
