We're here to just remind everyone that Samuel L. Jackson wants Mace Windu to return to the Star Wars universe, and we couldn't agree more. We had completely forgotten that the legendary actor had expressed that he wanted to return to the series after his character's 'fall' from grace, until GameSpot kindly reminded us.
Back in 2019, the actor spoke to talk show host Stephen Colbert about returning to any one of his past roles. Jackson proceeded to confirm that if he could revisit any character, he'd "really love to give one more run at Mace Windu in Star Wars".
Speaking of Star Wars, here is a phenomenal IRL build of The Mandalorian's Razor Crest...
If you remember correctly, Mace Windu is kinda, sorta, well, dead. After battling and almost winning against Emperor Palpatine, Windu is force-lightning'ed out of a window to his doom. Well, that's what we saw, but it seems Jackson disagrees with this series of events. "There's a long history of one-handed guys that were Jedis that have lightsabers that still make it," says Sam. "Jedis can fall from incredible heights and not die, like cats."
Jedis are, perhaps, a little different from cats but, you know, he has a point. Jedis fall from silly heights all the time in the Star Wars series. And with all of the extended-universe shows happening on Disney Plus right now, it's not completely out of the question for one of them to bring Windu back. I'd love to hear how he's doing now. I hope he's well, and the lightning didn't hurt too bad. How bad can being powerfully electrocuted be?
Honestly, I think I'm just attached to Mace Windu because of his purple lightsaber. If you didn't already know, Samuel L. Jackson requested he get a purple lightsaber when he joined the cast, which opened up the door for all sorts of colours in the future. He told George Lucas that he should have a custom colour because, and I quote, "I'm like the second baddest Jedi in the universe" - and yeah, solid logic. Disney, give him a little cameo for that alone, will yah?
