Mace Windu's Return in The Mandalorian Season 2 - Star Wars Theory

Alright, I know a lot of you miss the theories, and so do I. So here’s one that at first glance will make you roll your eyes, but by the end of this video, I think you’ll be able to see a lot of the plausibility of things.
The more I write this theory, the more it makes sense, but first we need to understand a lot of lore and backstory, so sit tight, and enjoy this one with me.
In Star Wars Revenge of the Sith, Mace Windu fell out of the window, and we haven’t seen the Jedi Master since. We saw a figment of his return in one of the Vader comics by Marvel which I have full coverage on with voice acting, if you can call it that, now this Mace isn’t really Mace, it’s some weird fragmented animated version of him....can we say he’s truly dead?
In this theory video, I’m going to say he didn’t die that day. The theory I have behind this, is that we heard his voice speak to Rey in the rise of Skywalker. You’re probably thinking, well…that definitely means he’s dead, right?
Sure, maybe, but, how did he speak to Rey? If it wasn’t for Qui-Gon Jinn, no one would be a force ghost. Qui-Gon Jinn met with the shaman of the whills, now these were ancient powerful beings, almost like priests of some sorts. During Qui-Gon’s life, they taught him how to transfer his essence beyond death. However, due to his untimely demise, he wasn’t able to complete his training, therefore only able to manifest his voice as a ghost, and not his body, until much later near a new hope which can be read in the book from a certain point of view. In Revenge of the Sith, Qui-Gon’s force ghost speaks to Yoda, it was cut from the film, but it was dialogued in the deleted scenes and written in the original script. That moment on Polis Massa where Yoda is meditating during Padme’s labor, to which Bail Organa, the future adopted father of Leia, interrupts Yoda’s communication with Qui-Gon. Once Padme dies and obi-wan and Yoda speak, we learn that Qui-Gon is now Yoda’s master, who has taught him how to commune with him in the force. To Obi-Wan’s surprise, Qui-Gon is still very much around in the force.
So, where did he go? The Star Wars galaxy is huge, and it’s possible that he fled somewhere, or went in hiding, just like Yoda, Obi-Wan and the rest of the survivors of Order 66.
What if he went somewhere to some unknown planet in the unknown regions somewhere to hide and train more Jedi? What if he became a Mandalorian? Nothing would suit his scarred and recognizable face better than hiding under a helmet.
This leads me to my next theory, what if Mace Windu is in The Mandalorian? What if he shows up in season2 or 3 or more? Mace Windu was unbelievably powerful, so powerful that he went toe to toe with the Emperor.
Now, if Mace is alive, seeing him as a Mandalorian would not just be cool, it would fit a lot of the story for the Jedi that could help reunite the child with his species. There is no person in the galaxy that knows Yoda better than Mace Windu. He sat with him as second in command, and in some cases, first in command. Mace in a lot of ways, was the chosen one. He used the light and the dark, he was the master of his emotions, and he had surpassed all of his teachers as a young boy, growing to become the most powerful Jedi just before Anakin could see his full potential until he lost to OBiWan.
Let’s say Mando takes The Child to Ahsoka, and she eventually tells him of someone who can really show him the way to reuniting the Child with its species, pointing him to another Easter egg hunt throughout the galaxy, to Mace Windu.Mace could be laying low, perhaps growing his crops and training those who exhibited force powers at an early age. Perfecting his abilities and learning more about all aspects of the force, and eventually along the way, learning a ton from Yoda who communed with him, and Obi-Wan after their deaths. Perhaps even, coming across Luke Skywalker and learning of the fate of Anakin and the Emperor. Teaching Luke so much about his father’s youth.
This could be Mace’s return, this could be how Mace fits into the Mandalorian. So you’re probably saying, well ok, but what about his death…well…What if while the Mando is finding the path to Mace Windu, he is followed by someone notorious flying the Slave 1 ship and once he does leave Mace, with the information on where to reunite The Child with his parents, Boba comes to him. How poetic would it be if Mace Windu’s death came full circle, and what I mean is, Boba Fett finds him, and kills him, transcending him into the force…avenging his father, Jango.

    It took so much electricity from Sideous on Vader for him to die. Mace was zapped & thrown out the window very quickly. With such high traffic on Coruscant, there is a very good chance he fell on a passing ship. Remember that Mace was like Yoda's devil's advocate. He lusted power & wanted to be the chosen one. Thats why he was so vocal in stoppoing Anakin from being an apprentice. Mace was on the dark side disguised like a jesuit in Christianity.

    as in all things there is a repeating cycle. revenge leads to hate, hate leads to revenge... but what leads to both... ambition, anger, the drive to enact vengeance. loss.. denial. many other things.. too many, with the perceptions based on individuals or even civilizations. you can apply this to many characters in real life or in movies, one step leading to another.. with choice and consequences abound. just reminds me so much of cloud atlas or the fountain. we all live many lives, meeting each other along the way, repeating a cycle without really ever being aware of it... thou breaking the fourth wall, we... become aware. peace. maybe this is what the force can teach, to those who become aware of it as a medium.

    This could go in my opinion because in the prequel trilogy, he is stronger than Anakin at his best we've seen. Anakin got limbs cut off and got his entire body burned. If Anakin can survive this, I can definitely see how Mace Windu can.

    Last we left Mace Windu, his thoughts were of Anakin being the one to bring balance to the force. Perhaps after taking his fall, he ruminates on the meaning of "Balance" and finds a flow with the force beyond the dichotomy of Sith and Jedi. Perhaps the prophecy was fulfilled and Anakin did bring Balance to the force, and that Balance is Mace Windu. Seeing the mass death of force sensitive Jedi students, and a Galaxy ripped apart by war, where the Force sensitive are essentially turned to killing each other as ideological warriors of light and dark. Perhaps Mace dedicates his path and purpose to serving the will of the force and the balance of the force, tipping the scales of galactic events in subtle ways. It certainly suits the color of his lightsaber, and it certainly suits the purpose of storytelling to impart the wisdom of tolerance in a generation of unprecedented polarization.

    What i would like to see is a older more somber mace. One who through order 66 and his exile realised the weaknes in the jedi order and grew wiser and more calm because of that. Imagine luke meeting him and having a talk with mace who tells him of the strengths of the order and what to avoid so the new one wont make the same mistakes. Then as he sends them of he is at peace knowing the jedis future is safe with luke and grogu and is happy that a skywalker balanced the force and then maybe with that peace he accepts his death afterwards like ben did

    I rather see Mace as a grey Jedi. He was more open to fighting and testing his abilities than a Jedi should. Quite similar to Anakin. I think his loss to the Emperor / Anakin and the following order 66 made him realise the Jedi way failed. So if any he would build a new order.

    Love Mace still being alive but hate he dying to a bounter hunter even if it's Boba. That is so unepic. I would rather he died like Yoda did. Just his time to go. He was in his fifties when he fought Sidious and the Mandalorian takes place several decades later putting him in his eighties or even early nineties. No one killed Yoda and that was perfect. Just have Mace die the same way and maybe even while talking with Luke. Would love to see him and Luke together. Talking about Anakin and Mace knowing how powerful and good Luke has become. Teaching him more about the force. That would be totally awesome and I think what I most want to see now. Having him die at the hands of someone who is not even a force users wouldn't be right even if it was Boba. I understand the idea because of Jango but this is Mace Windu. He dies in bed and then disappears. But before have some scenes where he is kicking ass first. Something with Luke fighting side by side would be incredible. Oh and even with Ashoka with them. Oh my God the 3 fighting together against hundreds of troopers and even some dark siders that have popped up in the story somewhere. Yes this would be acceptable and preferred by at least me, hahahhahaah I am not sure how others would like it but is a thought.
