Star Wars: Samuel L. Jackson Really Wants a Mace Windu Spinoff

Star Wars: Samuel L. Jackson Really Wants a Mace Windu Spinoff

Samuel L. Jackson may be one of the tenets of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Nick Fury, but back in the 00s, he was Jedi Master Mace Windu. With all the new Star Wars spinoffs like Kenobi and Boba Fett coming out, Jackson has been very vocal about having Windu come back somehow, and in a new interview, he shows that he hasn’t changed his stance.

Talking to Empire, Jackson exclaims, “He’s not dead!” and when the site tried to ask him what kind of project he would have liked to work on, Jackson just said, “Everything, yes!”

For context, Jackson’s Mace Windu had been one of the main Jedi masters of the entire sequel trilogy, finally brandishing a lightsaber in Attack of the Clones, then falling to his death thanks to Darth Sidious and Anakin Skywalker.

With so many characters coming back to life, a lot of fans think that it’s ultimately better for Star Wars if some characters stayed dead, but there could be ways for Jackson to come back in some form without having to resurrect Windu.

He already did a voice cameo as Windu in The Rise of Skywalker, but some fans have been pitching a young Windu series with someone else taking on the role. If they want to go further with the Ahsoka series, I think they could just bring in a hologram of young Windu in Clone Wars armor, and use some of that Captain Marvel magic to de-age Jackson.

For now, Mace Windu remains a dead Jedi, but there’s always some wiggle room in a galaxy far far away.
