Is Mace Windu From 'Star Wars' Still Alive? Samuel L. Jackson Thinks So

"In my mind, I'm not dead."

Mace Windu from the "Star Wars" movies is dead, killed by Anakin Skywalker and Chancellor Palpatine in "Revenge of the Sith," as seen in the video above.

Or is he?

Samuel L. Jackson, who played the Jedi master in the three prequel films, said he thinks the character is still alive.

"It was George Lucas' idea to kill Mace Windu," Jackson said while answering questions on Twitter to help promote "Legend of Tarzan," which opens Friday.

"In my mind, I'm not dead," he said. "Jedi can fall incredibly high distances and not die."

Asked about the comments by Entertainment Weekly, Jackson said the only person he shared his theory with was "Star Wars" creator George Lucas.

So could Mace Windu somehow appear in one of the upcoming "Star Wars" films?
