Star Wars: Is Disney Teasing Samuel L. Jackson’s Mace Windu Return?

The Mandalorian: Disney may be planning to bring another iconic Star Wars character back into the fold, as if all the ridiculous cameos and guest appearances in Season 2 weren’t enough. The official Star Wars Instagram account strongly suggests that actor Samuel L. Jackson wishes for a happy birthday and that Jackson may be replaying the role of Jedi Master Mace Windu. The message said, “The party isn’t over. It’s just getting started. Happy birthday to Samuel L. Jackson.”

This message clearly refers to Mace’s iconic line from the clone attack, where Mace confronts Count Dooku and Jango Fett and declares, “This party is over!” But the wording of the message definitely seems to mean that Jackson has returned to some role. Probably in the upcoming Star Wars series of Disney +.

If so, it’s unclear if Jackson will star in his own unpublished project or play a supporting role in another series. The future Obi-Wan Kenobi series seems to have one possibility. The series is set 10 years after the Episode III event (solo: about the same period as the Star Wars story) and sheds light on Obi-Wan’s struggle during its lost period in exile to Tatooine. Bringing back Jackson’s Mace Windu will be a cake icing for fans of the first part, as we already know that Hayden Christensen will replay the role of Darth Vader in the series.

Assuming Mace returns to the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, it’s unclear if the character will appear in the main story or through a flashback from the Clone Wars era. Fans have long speculated that Mace survived his seemingly deadly clash with Darth Sidious in Episode III, so it’s hard to expect an older one-armed Master Windu to help Obi-Wan. It’s not realistic. Or will he appear further down the Star Wars timeline, giving Boba Fett a chance to take revenge on his murdered father?

When Jackson returns, he will join the ever-growing list of actors replaying their iconic Star Wars role at Disney +. The Mandalorian also revived Katee Sackhoff in her first live-action performance as Bokatan Clydes, and Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett. Morrison’s Fett and Minnawen’s Fennec Shand will appear in the spin-off series Boba Fett’s book, premiered in December 2021. In addition, there was a pretty huge cameo at the season 2 finale …
