Samuel L. Jackson Wants To Be In The New Star Wars Films
He’s had it with these motherf**king Sith in this motherf**king Force. Samuel L. Jackson is eager to appear in the newest upcoming Star Wars film, reports E! News- despite the fact that his character, Mace Windu, was all but certainly killed after losing an arm and plunging from a window in Revenge of the Sith:
“I’m not surprised but totally geeked by the idea of there being more Star Wars,” Jackson told E! News at the Spike TV Video Game Awards Friday. “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.”
Jackson added that, “Hell yeah” he would definitely return.
Disney announced that they would be producing three new Star Wars films after purchasing Lucasfilms Ltd. and the rights to the franchise last October. Harrison Ford has reportedly also said he is “open” to appearing in a film.
It’s worth noting that Obi-Wan was very much alive at the beginning of Episode IV. He later “disembodies” himself into the Force; he does later come back in both The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi briefly.
Regardless, I think we all know Jackson/Windu wouldn’t really need an excuse to come back. Some poor descendant of Luke or Leia will say, “Hey Mace, didn’t you die centuries ago?” He’ll respond, “I’M A JEDI, BI****S!” And that’s that.
What do you think of Jackson returning for the next Star Wars film?
