Like most of you, we grew up watching Star Wars and it was a huge part of our childhood. Everyone liked Han Solo the best, wanted to nail Princess Leia and pretended their dog was a wookie. Or was that just us?
Anyway, looking back, there were always a few characters we thought would have a kick ass story line if they had their own time in the spotlight. Here are the five characters that we think should have had their own movie:
1. Raymus Antilles
Captain Raymus Antilles makes his first appearance in Star Wars: Episode IV–A New Hope. He’s the guy that gets strangled when they are looking for the information that R2-D2 and C-3PO are carrying. He originated from Alderaan, and he was a pretty big figure in The Clone Wars. Antilles was also a member of the Rebel Alliance until Darth Vader killed him. And he helped out Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi, so we figure his mixed history could make for a pretty rad movie.
2. Mace Windu
Mace Windu is a Master of the Jedi Order and a Jedi General, so it’s safe to say that he would have a pretty compelling back story. Mace Windu–or Mace Motherfucking Windu as we like to call him–is played by Samuel L. Jackson. We didn’t see much of Mace Windu because he was killed off pretty early in the series by Darth Sidious, but there has been some speculation that he survived the attack and went into hiding the same way Yoda did. It could be awesome to Mace Windu get his own movie showing his history with the Jedi before the terrible prequels George Lucas did. Sammy J said he would come back to the Star Wars franchise, so there could be some hope here!
I hope you all recognize this fuzzy individual, if not you might want to revisit the original Star Wars movies. And ask your parents why they robbed you of a childhood. Chewbacca was always the right hand man to Han Solo, but what did Chewie do before that? If this movie were to happen, it would be easy to recast him–just get some really tall guy to put on the fur and you’re set. This could be a really cool movie, but it would have to have a lot of subtitles. Fun fact: In the expanded universe of Star Wars, Chewbacca was supposed to be enslaved right until he was introduced to Han Solo, but since we don’t know the exact story, it could be a fun one to see.
4. Darth Maul
Darth Maul is probably a close second to the best villain in the Star Wars universe. The combination of his double sided lightsaber, his sweet moves and his red and black face make him a kick ass villain. People loved Darth Maul so much, his story line was expanded in books and comics by Star Wars writers. It was expanded, but it could still use some help as it wasn’t very thorough. He was Palpatine’s (Lord Sidious) first apprentice and was killed off by Obi-Wan Kenobi. But he was later revived in the Clone Wars cartoons, so who knows if we may seem him again. We would love to see some history behind his mysterious Sith Lord.
5. Boba Fett
If you don’t like Boba Fett or haven’t heard of him close the window, shut off your computer and never return to the internet. Ok that was a little harsh, but what isn’t there to love about Boba Fett? He’s pretty much the sworn enemy to Han Solo and the best bounty hunter in the Star Wars universe. We all know that he is a clone of Jango Fett ,who was shown in the prequel trilogy, but other than that we don’t know a lot about Boba Fett. Boba Fett needs his own solo action-adventure movie where he gets to go after some criminals for some sweet, sweet bounty.
Bonus 6. Darth Vader
Yes, we know about the prequels, but they were shitty and we want a re-do. You get to see him become Darth Vader, but you never get to see him in his full glory. We would love to see a movie about Darth Vader navigating politics and black ops missions for Emperor Palpatine and succumbing to the absolute depths of the Dark Side.
