‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Fans Think They Found Mace Windu In New Episode

Will Samuel L. Jackson return to 'Star Wars'?

Mace Windu Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars

In the newest episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi, fans believe they spotted an appearance by Mace Windu.

Last week, the fourth episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi dropped on Disney Plus. The series, which follows the adventures of the former Jedi Master (Ewan McGregor) 10 years after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith features some exciting Easter Eggs for fans of the franchise to spot, and some believe they found one featuring Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson).


Ben Kenobi, who infiltrated the Fortress Inquisitorius stumbles upon a group of Force-sensitive individuals encased in what Kenobi would call a “tomb.” These individuals were killed by the Sith Inquisitors, and has led to many looking closely to see if there are any recognizable figures in this tomb, which leads to the Mace Windu theory of it all.

Some fans have spotted that one of the individuals in the tomb may have a resemblance to the likeness of Mace Windu, which if this were the case, would lead to some interesting implications for the future of the Star Wars franchise.

If this were in fact Mace Windu, it would make sense if Star Wars would want to reintroduce the character into the franchise following his last appearance in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, in which he is seemingly killed by Emperor Palpatine. Also, it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if Lucasfilm would want to bring back Samuel L. Jackson, one of the most recognizable movie stars in the world, to return to the galaxy far, far away.

Here is the synopsis for Obi-Wan Kenobi:

During the reign of the Galactic Empire, former Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi embarks on a crucial mission. Kenobi must confront allies turned enemies and face the wrath of the Empire.

Directed by Deborah Chow from Joby Harold’s scripts, the series stars Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen, Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie. The series will also see the return of legendary Star Wars composer John Williams, who scored a theme.

The first four episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi are on Disney Plus now, with new episodes airing every Wednesday. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the series, Mace Windu, and the future of the Star Wars franchise, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
