It looks like Star Wars is putting the focus on several characters whose stories remain untold. A new report reveals that Disney and Lucasfilm are currently developing a new show on Disney+ that would follow the adventures of a young Mace Windu.
The revelation comes from Daniel Richtman (Twitter handle @DanielRPK) who claims that one of the several Star Wars projects being developed for Disney+ is a Windu spin-off (via Comicbook.com). The project is expected to focus on the character's early years as a Jedi which means that a new actor could be brought in to portray Windu.
But what could this mean for Samuel L. Jackson, who has long been campaigning for his character's return in the Star Wars Universe? Fans can rest assured that there is an intention to bring Jackson back to play Windu. The series could also feature Jackson in certain scenes.

First of all, this is very exciting news considering that Windu was an instant fan-favorite from the Star Wars prequel movies because of his purple lightsaber and, let's be honest, he's played by Jackson. For now, there hasn't been an official word from Disney and Lucasfilm. However, we are keeping our fingers crossed on the possibility that an official announcement will be made soon.
What do you think of a new Star Wars show focusing on Mace Windu? Will it be a hit or should Star Wars look for different ideas? Let us know in the comments below.
