Samuel L. Jackson Back To Star Wars?
Maybe this party isn’t over for Samuel L. Jackson? Star Wars fans speculate….
This was a fun topic this week: Could Disney be hinting at a return to Star Wars for Mace Windu via his alter ego Samuel L. Jackson?
It was a simple enough post:

A happy birthday post to Jackson from the official Star Wars Instagram. NBD, right? Simple.
Post after post talked of Lucasfilm teasing the return of Mace Windu.
Regarding The Return Of Samuel L. Jackson
Perhaps the most even keeled of the posts comes from That Hashtag Show, where Greg Evans posted:
OK I know this is a long shot, but as Star Wars fans we always try to find some clues on what could be heading our way. As most us fans know, today is Samuel L. Jackson’s birthday. Well, if you follow the official Star Wars page on Instagram you may of noticed their Happy Birthday post to him. Could we possibly see the return of Mace Windu?
Yes, I know it is a long shot, but seeing him in that post as Mace Windu, you just want it to happen. So Maybe the Windu party isn’t over after all. I mean when you look at Star Wars caption it is a little suspicious.
The party isn’t over, it’s just beginning! Sending a very happy birthday to Samuel L. Jackson.
I mean, Greg has a point!
We’ve even posted about it previously:
After all, Sam Jackson thinks Mace Windu is still alive:

In fact, The Maker himself, George Lucas, thinks that’s okay, too.
Back in 2016, EW.com’s Dalton Ross posted:
Has the actor shared his views with the creative forces behind the Star Wars franchise? “Only George [Lucas],” says Jackson. “But George doesn’t have anything to do with it anymore.” And what was Lucas’ reaction? “George is like, ‘I’m okay with that. You can be alive.”
Now that would be a Disney+ plus show. No? Mace Windu fighting the good fight, wandering the galaxy sans lightsaber.
Just like Jules Winnfield said in Pulp Fiction:
You know, walk the earth, meet people… get into adventures. Like Caine from “Kung Fu.”
Switch galaxy for Earth and you’re on the right track.
