My take on it - he likely fell thru the roof of a cab and was taken off to the priests to be healed.
There’s footage of the impact, actually. Just a large thud and a pissed off janitor.
The EU already did it. See the Dark Empire comic series.
What is it with Lucas & lopping off peoples’ hands, just prior to chucking them down a pit, anyway.:dubious:
It’s getting repetative.
I’m actually producing a non profit graphic novel about ‘What if’ Mace survived episode 3. You can check out our facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/StarWarsTheSearchForWindu
It’s basically a big taser. Only deadly to those with pre-existing conditions.
Well, Darth Maul is apparently still alive despite being cut in half and tossed down one of the ubiquitous infinite pits of doom that are a staple of Star Wars architecture. Apparently Star Wars characters can survive just about anything,
But IIRC, Jackson made his character dying a precondition for his being in the movies. That probably ensures his staying dead more then if the movie had shown him being chopped in a hundred pieces and then set on fire.
Correction: he agreed to be in the movies on the condition that his character “doesn’t die like some punk”. Presumably he knew that, as a Jedi (and a supporting one at that), his character was going to die eventually since that’s the premise of Ep. IV - but he didn’t want it to happen in a mass battle, during a montage of Vader hunting Jedis, that sort of thing.
Consequently he got a big dramatic send-off, fighting the Emperor himself. Like a bad incestuous son, I believe is the vernacular.
This thread is three years old and was bumped today by a spammer. The first 24 posts are from 2009.
I guess I shouldn’t bother replying “that’s what she said!” to post 16, then.
The Force kept him alive in zombie form.
I believe thats called the Star Wars live action series.
And he fell like, through a dozen awnings to slow his fall and landed in a passing garbage truck. He’s FINE.
I think that’s a precondition for Samuel L Jackson being in most of the movies he’s in.
How are you defining “slow down”? They could appear to Luke; they could talk to Luke. And … that was it. They couldn’t interact with the physical world.
Ananikan pulled it off when he jumped out into traffic and fell just right to land on a passing flying car. I like to believe Windu did the same and then thought, “Holy Fuck! Oh man, that was so bad-ass! I don’t think I could ever top that so I’m just going to retire and leave my career on a high with that bad-ass move.”
There used to be a website called “The Hacked Off Limbs of Star Wars”. I don’t know if it’s still around, but it was pretty funny.
“HELL YEA HE’S DEAD, AND I HOPE HE BURNS IN HELL!”
Like a bad donkey incestuous son.
Didn’t I read somewhere that there was some odd gravitational field in Star Wars that keeps people from dying when they hit the ground?
Okay, I know I read it somewhere, but was it anything to do with the movies? I haven’t watched a whole one yet–mostly because it’s fun to be the only person I know who hasn’t–despite having tons of merch as a kid.
