Is Mace Windu Dead? Star Wars' Samuel L. Jackson Has A Powerful 3-Word Answer 2

When asked by Empire what he would like to do in a hypothetical Mace Windu Disney+ series, Samuel L. Jackson responded by saying, «EVERYTHING YES!!» While his words are brief, it’s clear that Jackson wants to return as the iconic Jedi. The character starring in a Disney+ series isn’t impossible, as Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) received his own solo show set between «Revenge of the Sith» and «A New Hope.» While it remains to be seen if Jackson ever returns as Windu, the enthusiasm is there, and fans would no doubt show up for the event series if it ever manifests. 

In his 2016 chat with EW, Jackson suggested that his character is simply laying low, just like Obi-Wan after the fall of the Jedi Order. When asked if he shared his views with «Star Wars» creator George Lucas, Jackson said yes. «But George doesn’t have anything to do with it anymore,» he said, before revealing that the franchise creator was fine with his decision. «George is like, ‘I’m okay with that. You can be alive.'»

It would be interesting to see Jackson step into the shoes of Mace Windu once again. One can only imagine how exciting a Disney+ series centered on him would be. A miniseries set after the events of «Revenge of the Sith» showing Windu on a quest or as a wandering nomad would no doubt be a hit for the platform. But as of this writing, Disney+ doesn’t have a plan to bring Windu back, so «Star Wars» fans will just have to wait and see if Jackson’s hopes will ever be realized.
