Samuel L. Jackson is having none of your Mace Windu is Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ Supreme Leader Snoke fan theories. Jackson has his own theory that Windu wasn’t killed by Palpatine and survived that long fall (and losing his hand) because Anakin had the same things happen to him as well as other Jedi and they lived. Jackson makes a good case and fans would go crazy to see Windu return to the big screen, or to the animated side on Star Wars Rebels. Lucasfilm and Disney should make that happen. Until then, check out Jackson’s Mace Windu thoughts in the video below. (more…)
There’s the old axiom in drama that says if you don’t see the body, the person in question is not really dead. There’s an unspoken addendum to that rule though: if you see the body lose a hand and then be tossed out out 1,324th story window by Force lightning, it’s okay to assume its dead even if you don’t ever put eyes on a cadaver. But someone is making a case for the former, at least so far as Mace Windu, the Jedi master from the Star Wars prequels is concerned. Samuel L. Jackson wants you to know he’s ready and willing to return to the role, as soon as one *minor* problem is resolved. (more…)
The Graham Norton Show is a fantastic talk show that always seems to bring out the crazy in its guests. Samuel L Jackson was recently on the show and told the story of how he talked George Lucas into creating Mace Windu for him and how Windu ended up with that iconic purple lightsaber blade. It seems that Jackson wanted people, and himself, to be able to pick Windu out of the huge, crowded fight scene amidst all those green Jedi blades.
Jackson goes on to describe some changes he made to the lightsaber prop, the addition of the inscription: “Bad Motherf**ker.” That makes sense though it has to match the wallet he carries around.
What do you think? Did he live up to the inscription? Many fans are of the opinion that Mace survived the fall in that final battle. Anyway you look at it, he was a bad mother . . . Shut your mouth . . . I’m just talkin’ bout Windu.
Samuel L. Jackson, (Mr. Jackson if you’re nasty), is throwing his hat into the Star Wars VII ring. He recently talked with E! News about his desire to remain associated with the franchise he loves.
“I’m not surprised but totally geeked by the idea of there being more Star Wars. It’s like, okay, Obi-Wan was dead when episode four started, so maybe everyone thinks I’m dead and we’ll find out what happened to Mace Windu. I can come back as one-armed or a one-handed Jedi that’s still around that didn’t actually die.”
“I could do that or be a ghost hologram. I don’t care, I just want to stay associated with the franchise.”
“I just always loved it. I always loved the idea of it, that there’s this whole civilization out there somewhere else that’s just as much fun and different and diverse and wild as we are.”
What do you think? We never really saw the body so there’s plenty of wiggle room to bring Mace Windu back. We saw Anakin fall through the speeder filled sky of Coruscant, so it’s not a stretch to see a Jedi Master like Mace Windu save himself as easily.
