OBI-WAN KENOBI Stars Ewan McGregor And Hayden Christensen Weigh In On Theory Mace Windu Is Still Alive

Samuel L. Jackson maintains there's a chance Mace Windu could have survived the events of Revenge of the Sith, but do Obi-Wan Kenobi stars Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen think he's still out there?

Mace Windu proved to be one of the Star Wars prequels' breakout characters, and the majority of the credit has to goe to the legendary Samuel L. Jackson. 

In Revenge of the Sith, we saw Windu head off to confront Chancellor Palpatine after learning he was secretly the Sith Lord Darth Sidious. Anakin Skywalker interrupted their battle, ultimately choosing to help Palpatine by severing Windu's hand before his new Master used Force Lightning to seemingly throw the hero to his death.

Jackson has made his interest in reprising the role known on multiple occasions, sharing his belief that there's a chance Windu could have survived. It's certainly not outside the realm of possibility that the Jedi is in hiding somewhere after being badly injured, but what does the actor behind his fall, Hayden Christensen, think? 

Talking to MTV News (via SFFGazette.com) about the popular theory, the Obi-Wan Kenobi star responded, "If Sam Jackson wants it to be true, I wouldn't want to disagree with that." 

In a separate interview with Screen Rant, Ewan McGregor was asked to share his take. "No. No. I don't think so," he admitted. "Is he? No, no, no. Anything is possible. It's not for me to say, really. I can't be cheating someone out of a sequel. No, I don't think so. I think he went out that window, and it was a long way up." 

It's worth noting that in Revenge of the Sith's screenplay, George Lucas wrote that Windu "falls twenty stories to his death." Disney can always go back on that, of course, but it's pretty difficult to figure out where he could fit into Lucasfilm's current plans for the Star Wars franchise.
