Mace Windu is one of the coolest Jedi in Star Wars. He was the leader of the Jedi Order in the days of the Republic and he’s the only Force-wielder to ever have a purple lightsaber. He’s 100% awesome! But he came to a rather tragic ending as Anakin cut his hand off and Palpatine finished him off with a powerful blast of lightning.
He was knocked from the blast across the way to a “certain” death but is that true?
Darth Maul got sliced in half and tumbled down a chute. But his story wasn’t finished. He was brought back to life in The Clone Wars and had a surprise cameo in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Darth Maul is very much alive and kicking!
So, does this provide the assumption that Mace Windu can also return to a galaxy far, far away? Samuel L. Jackson has said plenty of times since Disney acquired Star Wars that he would love to return to his role as Mace Windu and if Darth Maul could survive his gruesome defeat in The Phantom Menace then surely Mace can return.
Some Star Wars theorists were even beginning to think that Supreme Leader Snoke was Mace Windu come back for revenge against the Skywalkers but that theory came to a sudden end after he was abruptly killed off in The Last Jedi. But even though Snoke is gone Mace can still return and be great in an exciting way.
Wouldn’t that be fantastic? Mace Windu appearing in a Star Wars standalone film or potentially the live-action Star Wars show, The Mandalorian. That would not only be a twist in the franchise but it would be a fantastic surprise for all Star Wars fans.
So, can Mace Windu return to Star Wars? Uh, yeah he can!!! And Kathleen Kennedy should make it happen sooner rather than later.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day. May the Force be with you.
