I liked him as Mace, tbh.

Blech. It was a horrible miscast of such a good SLJ. We'll never get the warranty on it now.

Maybe you were influenced by books and comic books? Anyway, I respect your opinion.

Somehow those two sentences appear to contradict...

I hope they don't reprise their roles. For continueity's sake, I hate the idea of Ewan returning! It would look weird, for Obi Wan to still be a Force Ghost, but for him to look different from what he did in Episodes 4-6, unless they give an explanation, maybe he chose to go back to looking like his younger self. I personally hope we don't get Obi Wan or as a Ghost. I don't see why it would come in nessasery, unless Luke's the main character (which I honestly hope he isn't) I wouldn't mind so much if they use Hayden Christianso as Anakin though.
But if they use Ewan, it wouldn't look right next to the OT. Tey'd end up having to make a special edition where they cut-out Allec Guiness in the OT & replace him with Ewan, which would be kinda disrespectful to Alec Guness, but I'd rather that, than a massave continueity erros. I absalutly loath continueity eros entirely. That's why I like a lot of the SE changes so much!

you felt he would have been better used in a different role? Or that he should have simply been better written?

I do like him from the books/comics/shows/games, but I liked him before that too. The man beheaded a Fett and knocked the emperor on his ass. Even if Anakin sucker-sabered him, that was still pretty impressive.

I honestly don't mind either way if they bring them back or want to use something fresh. If they DO decide to bring back Mace or Obi-Wan though, I would like to see them portrayed by their original actors.

I just find it odd that we know so little about Episode 7's plot right now.

I assume that's because it doesn't exist. I wouldn't mind it being pushed back actually.

I'm curious to see what Abrams and co are coming up with; I just hope it's good star wars. That's all I want.

Mace Windu as a character is... an okay idea. A wise, calm, stern, master who still comes as of as totally pimpin'. Of course, he (along with absolutely everything else in the Prequels) needs to be totally rewritten so he's not boring and disappointing. But Sam Jackson is not that kind of actor. There are plenty of other black actors out there that could pull of Mace Windu, but SLJ just doesn't fit. He should be the crazy, renegade badass who does things his way. He should have been the older, ass-kicking military captain, or smuggler, or criminal, or cop that Obi-Wan is friends with or something. Just not a Jedi.


Honestly I'd rather SLJ just wasn't in Star Wars.

I agree... they gave him a boring character.

It was just being nice to SLJ who was literally begging to be in the movie. His fan boy dreams were met well beyond his expectations when Lucas made him the No.2 Jedi right behind Yoda.

But yeah the actual character really didn't bring anything to SW, except help highlight how blind the Jedi were.

Episode I


SLJ: "I do not believe the Sith could have returned without us knowing.."

Liam Neeson: "Urm I kind of saw one and fought him.."

Episode 2

Natalie Portman: "I think Count Dooku is behind this"

SLJ: "Nah trust me my old pal Dooku's cool.."

Episode 3:

SLJ: "I sense the dark side of the force surrounding Chancellor Palpatine.."

Anakin: "The Chancellor is a Sith Lord"

SLJ: "A Sith Lord?? Are you sure?? I mean are you really sure? Because Dude seriously that makes no sense!"

Episode 3:

"Just gonna slowly prep for a big swing to kill Palpatine. Extending my arm a couple of inches just wouldn't be epic enough"

Well if this is true then it'd be pretty easy (by comparison) to have the Alec Guiness Obi-Wan force ghost come back:

I believe they did something similar for Superman Returns giving Marlon Brando new lines.

Can't have Obiwan come back...there's no Alec Guinness
Can't have anakin come back...there's no Sebastian shaw
There's the blu ray edition Hayden, but yes, that is a stupid idea....as his force ghost is good anakin.

Qui gon, totally can return. He was the first to learn the path to immortality so that would make sense....

Can't have Mace come back, as he didn't learn the path to immortality.

Yoda would definitely be cool to return.....

And then what? Hardly anyone in the new trilogy knows these guys? So if ghosts would appear, it'd be Luke having a cosy pow-wow with his ghostly pals in a cave somewhere? Nah... ghosts are done.

The only one entitled to appear as a ghost one day is Luke.

Well I'm sure we'd know by now if they(any of the OT Ghosts) were in it. No matter how secretive Abrams is.
