Samuel L. Jackson Wants In On The New Star Wars Movies

Samuel L. Jackson Wants In On The New Star Wars Movies

Sure, his character Mace Windu died a rather pathetic death in Episode III, but since when has that stopped a Star Wars character from returning to the big screen?

Star Wars 7: Samuel L. Jackson Says “Hell, Yeah” to Returning as Mace Windu-Even as a One-Armed Ghost! [E!, via Boing Boing]


  • Pathetic? He beats the Emperor and only dies because Anakin betrays him. As far as Star Wars deaths go, it was pretty heroic. A lot better than say, Boba ‘get knocked into a Sarlacc’ Fett’s death.

  • He could drop into a flying passing by car/plane. Have his arm rebuild robotic like Luke’s hand and so i am sure the writers can find something. Add something else to his resume lol

  • funnily enough you never see the corpse and he’s clearly still alive when he gets tossed out the window maybe bring him back as the villain in the new trilogy that be pretty bad ass

    • Snakes on a Death Star?
      But yeah, it would be pretty strange having him appear out of nowhere after 20+ years. Maybe if he was totally incapacitated and only comes back as a crippled mentor but still. Why wasn’t he ‘crippled mentoring’ the entire rebellion all through the original trilogy?
      If it does happen watch out for the smell of a cheap day-time TV style amnesia excuse, it smells like bleach and excrement.

  • To be honest, i’m surprised Mace Windu hasn’t already been revived in the expanded universe. But this could kinda work. I mean, we didn’t actually see him die right? He fell out of a window… for all we know he could have landed in Watto’s Mattress emporium.

  • Samuel L Jackson can be the king of unsatisfying deaths if he so pleases! Anyone remember Deep Blue Sea?
    *heroic, motivation-spurring speech*
    … *holyshititsashark*
    Yeah, that’s it.

  • bringing all these characters back some time after the end of episode VI is just plain stupid and going to make things confusing. It will be like just throwing old characters in there just for the sake of doing it.

    i say start completely fresh, with new characters for the main story. maybe let older characters like Han or Mace do cameos in the film but dont make it about them.
    Bring on the saga of Kyle Katan and a new line of Jedi.
