Would you like to see the baddest mother f**king Jedi in the galaxy return in his own Star Wars film, or possibly as a Force Ghost in another Star Wars film? Samuel Jackson says that could happen in the near future…
Samuel Jackson, who portrayed Jedi Master Mace Windu in the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, and who was betrayed by Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and seemingly sent to his death, is now saying that he could return to the Star Wars universe. Talking to website Epicstream, Jackson gave the the scoop:
"“I was waiting for the call. I had a conversation with Mark Hamill about it when they were auditioning people for Jedis and I said we should go over to the studio and see if we could get in the movie. He didn’t even know there was a movie and then he ends up in it! But who knows, there’s like 30 more movies coming – I’ll find my way back in somewhere!”"
Honestly, it’s not that hard to imagine one of the most powerful Jedi Masters of that time, to be able to use the Force to survive a fall from Emperor Palpatine’s quarters, find someone or somewhere to repair his missing limbs with bionic replacements, rebuild his lightsabers, and retrain in the Force, hide from the Great Jedi Purge of Order 66, then go on a revenge killing spree against those who had betrayed he and the Jedi.
The one thing about Jedi Master Mace Windu, is that he was considered to dance perilously close to the Dark Side, because of his fighting style. Also, he was so in tune with the Force, that he was able to tap into it, to use Shatterpoint, and was able to tell the future and even change it, at certain point. Knowing this about Windu, it’s not that much of a stretch to see Mace Windu as a sort of Gray Jedi, seeking revenge throughout the Galaxy, against those who had destroyed the Jedi Order.
We want to hear from you! Would you like Disney to explore what happened to Mace Windu — in a standalone Star Wars film — once he was blown out of Palpatine’s window, in Revenge of the Sith? Or, would you rather just let the dead stay dead? Let us know in the comments below, and on social media.
