6. Mace Windu

Fans of the prequel trilogy remember that Boba Fett once had cause to hold a serious grudge against Jedi Master Mace Windu, who decapitated Boba’s father Jango in the arena on Geonosis during the battle that started the Clone Wars.

For years, Boba grew up hating Mace and vowed to kill him, even attempting to do so in an episode of The Clone Wars. Of course, Mace was ultimately killed by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine toward the end of Revenge of the Sith after Anakin cut off his hands in desperation to keep Palpatine from being executed. However, fans have always speculated that Mace somehow survived his fall from the Supreme Chancellor’s office on Coruscant and has been in hiding, biding his time as the Empire and its oppression spread throughout the galaxy.

What better place to reveal Mace’s survival than in The Book of Boba Fett? Would Boba Fett still feel the desire for revenge that drove him for so long when he was younger? Even if Mace didn’t survive, Boba’s hatred of the Jedi Master has been a driving force that would even be worth exploring in flashbacks on the show. Of course, a return of Samuel L. Jackson in the Star Wars universe would be a welcome surprise but perhaps one we shouldn’t hold our breaths for.
