Hello fellow moviegoers!
So, we are all super excited about the new Star Wars movies coming out over the next few years. We know that Episodes VII, VIII, and IX are coming, and we know that we are getting new spin-off movies between them. But, we don't really know much about these films. There have definitely been plenty of rumors surrounding these spin-offs. Han Solo? Boba Fett? Yoda?
Well, now we have another name to add to that mix. Director A.J. Edwards recently stated that he is in talks with Disney to helm one of these spin-offs, and that "It will focus on Mace Windu". There have been several sites out there running this as fact. But that is completely wrong. As of today, this is still just rumor. But let's talk about it as if it were true for a second.
At first I liked this idea more than most people, but that was because I actually thought Mace Windu was one of the good things about the prequels. Sam Jackson did a terrific job portraying him, and I was kind of disappointed when they killed him off. But that is just on the surface. As I started to think about it a little bit, I started to see just why it would not work.
They killed him off. I am not sure a lot of people would be open to the idea of bringing him back after that. If it took place before the prequels than that would turn even more people off. A prequel to a prequel? Come on. Plus, Sam Jackson isn't as young as he used to be. So if they did that, they would definitely have to recast. I am not too sure who I would cast as a younger Windu. Maybe Chadwick Boseman? Yes, I realize his name is thrown in the mix for basically every role like this, but that is because he is a terrific actor. He will most likely be to tied up with Black Panther though. So I am not quite sure who to cast.
Or they could just not make this movie at all. That would be cool too. Seriously, think about it Disney. Almost nobody liked the prequels, and Mace Windu wasn't a very popular character (sorry Sam). You definitely do not want to go back to those movies, because most people didn't like them. You would immediately be dividing your audience, which is not a good idea. The only character I could see getting a spin-off from those movies is Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan. With a little better writing and character development, that is a movie I could look forward to.
Do you think Mace Windu would make a good spin-off film? Or would you prefer someone else? Let me know by commenting on this post!
