Mace Windu The Unlikely Subject Of A New Star Wars Spinoff?

The Star Wars universe is getting a major directorial shot in the arm.

J.J. Abrams is hard at work on Star Wars Episode Seven: The Force Awakens, with fellow Hollywood directors Rian Johnson, Josh Trank and Gareth Edwards all on related projects. Lucasfilm has tapped these talented individuals to craft future installments of the SW Universe over the next decade. Some of the rumored names who may be a part of those stand alone projects include Han Solo, Yoda and even the infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett.

But if the information we caught on display in a recent director-helmed Reddit AMA is to be believed, another Jedi may join that list of characters planned for their own big screen stories. The Jedi we’re referring to is none other than Master Mace Windu!

Mace Windu Clone Wars

Director A.J. Edwards hopped on Reddit to promote his upcoming film The Better Angels, which focuses on a young Abraham Lincoln. A fan asked about the unlikely scenario of Edwards taking on a Star Wars film.  Here’s what transpired during that Q&A session:

The Better Angels is a great film and I can’t wait for the world to see it. Is there any truth to the rumor you will be directing a spin-off Star Wars film?

Talking about it, not able to say a lot yet. It will focus on Mace Windu.

For those of you who need a refresher on who Mace Windu is, his life was taken during an intense stand-off with Chancellor Palpatine and a newly turned Dark Side Anakin Skywalker. That climactic scene took place in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (it hurt us to see that cool as hell purple lightsaber wielder get electrocuted so bad. It’s likely that this film, if made, would have to take place even earlier than The Phantom Menace, and that seems like something Disney isn’t eager today revisit – prequels.

We hope the rumors surrounding this Star Wars spinoff movie comes true as seeing a young Mace could be interesting, though Jackson would likely be too old to reprise the role. In earnest though, given his resume, Edwards seems an unlikely choice to do a SW film, and this was no doubt said in jest. We’re still waiting for confirmation on the first couple standalone flicks in the series, so we’re pretty sure this news wouldn’t have been dropped in this manner. Anyhow, keep hoping Jedi fans, we’ve been wrong before.
