Samuel L. Jackson On Possible ‘Star Wars’ Return: ‘All They Got To Do Is Call’

Published

Over the next few years, the Star Wars franchise will expand beyond the movies with several TV shows. As expected, there are some characters that fans would love to see revisited. One actor wouldn’t mind putting on the old robe again.

The Force Is With You

Iconic actor Samuel L. Jackson became a part of Star Wars history with his portrayal of Mace Windu. As the Master of the Jedi High Council, Windu was very respected amongst his peers.

While speaking to JOE, the idea of returning to the franchise came up. Jackson said he was all for it. “I’m that guy. All they got to do is call,” he said.

Bring Me To Life

This isn’t the first time Jackson has spoke about returning to the franchise. During the Star Wars Celebration 40th anniversary panel, he dove deep into why his character is probably still alive. “I know you’re all in my corner on this. We all know Jedi can fall from incredible heights and survive, so apparently, I am not dead. Yes, I have two appendages right now, but we know the long and rich history of Star Wars characters reappearing with new appendages and being stronger and better than they ever were. Mace Windu is awaiting his return, let’s make it happen,” Jackson said.

Windu fell to his death in Revenge of the Sith at the hands of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine.

Don’t Rule It Out Yet

Jackson’s comments about Windu possibly surviving might sound wild, but it can happen. In The Phantom Menace, Darth Maul gets split in half by Obi-Wan Kenobi. During Solo: A Star Wars Story, which is between Menace and A New Hope, it was discovered that he somehow survived death.

Since the newer films take place nearly 50 years from Sith, Windu would be at least 100 if he appeared in the current movies. A possible series taking place shortly after his supposed death would be perfect for fans.

When Real-Life Plays A Part In TV Plotlines

Not every show has its plot lined out from the moment the pilot airs, and still, sometimes real-life can get in the way. Even the best laid plans can go awry, and sometimes plotlines are created entirely to accommodate an actor’s unexpected personal issue. From pregnancies to off-set injuries (and of course plenty of on-set injuries), writers are reworking scripts so that you’d never know something else was happening behind the scenes. Think you know why an actor exited a show? We’ll bet you didn’t even realize that some major show plots happened out of serendipity. Read on to find out how in some cases, the truth really is stranger than fiction.
