A scene in Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 4 was interpreted as evidence that Samuel L. Jackson's Mace Windu had died in the Star Wars universe.

What he saw there revived an old discussion about Mace Windu's "death" in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.

The iconic character is known to have been killed at the end of the Predicate trilogy, but there have long been theories that

the franchise could undo Mace Wind's fate and reconsider what happened after he was betrayed by Anakin Skywalker and crashed into a window.

Given his place in the timeline, Obi-Wan Kenobi has been identified as one of the few contributions to the Star Wars franchise given the opportunity to explore it.

Ultimately, the series follows Order 66 and follows a former fan-favorite Jedi Master ally, making Mace Windu's relationship at least make sense.

To bring him back, Star Wars must complete a challenge to explain why he didn't fight the Empire in the original trilogy.

Whether through a surprising cameo in Obi-Wan Kenobi, or perhaps another Disney+ series, Mace Windu could potentially come to life at some point in the future.
