5 "Star Wars" Characters That Deserve Their Own Spin-off Movie
5. Jango Fett
Fett's screen time was shamefully underwhelming in 2002's "Attack of the Clones." He is the father of fan favorite Boba Fett, and is a renown Bounty Hunter, The Expanded Universe (EU), which is no longer canon, described Jango as a great warrior of Mandalore. While it would be great to have a movie were Jango was a true Mando'ade, he was still known as the greatest bounty hunter in the galaxy prior to "Clones," which would be a fantastic story to explore in of itself.
Needless to say, this guy was so good, George Lucas decided to make a whole army of them. With the internet's fascination with "Star Wars: 1313" and the likely Boba Fett spin-off movie, there is plenty of interest for some fun bounty hunter action in the galaxy far, far away.
4. Emperor Palpatine
How did the Emperor get so evil? With this, it would be extremely to adapt the already wonderful EU story of young Palpatine following in the footsteps of Darth Plagueis, who could supposedly stop people from dying, and helped put into motion the overly-complicated and ultimately convoluted scheme that put the Sith in charge of the galaxy for nearly two decades.
Outside of his silly appearance in the prequels, Palpatine is a force to be reckoned with, and his upbringing on Naboo must've been an exceptional tale worthy seeing on the silver screen.
3. Darth Maul
His appearance in Episode I by no means substantial, the "Clone Wars" animated series has literally breathed new life into this character. Despite this, there is still a great plenty we don't know about Maul. There has been a decent amount of EU material that could provide critical direction for a Maul film, and there has been a famously cancelled Maul game from Red Fly studios that is trying to make a comeback.
The force is strong with this one.
2. Mace Windu
Do you honestly think a small drop from Palpatine's office could kill this Jedi? Not only would a Samuel L. Jackson led Star Wars film be amazing, but it would be able to flesh out a character that caught everyone's attention with his illustrious purple lightsaber. Of all the Jedi, Mace is the one who stands the most precariously at the border of Light and Dark. Second only to Yoda with his ability to use the force, Mace has proven that he had the ability to survive his fall in "Revenge of the Sith," and all the years of the Empire to come.
In a universe where Darth Maul can literally get cut in half and survive, the will of the fans can bring anyone back to life.
Rumors are already circulating that his movie is in the works, and for good reason. As Grand Master of the Jedi Order for numerous years, Yoda has seen generations of Jedi Knights grow and prosper, up until their demise at the hands of the Empire. Little is known about his past, though two disjointed versions of him exist in the existing Star Wars trilogies: an always serious, seemingly crippled badass in the prequels, and a wise but seemingly-loony hermit in the originals. Clearly in between trilogies, there had been some character development, or George Lucas just didn't care about cohesion.
Nevertheless, with 900 years of stories under his belt, Yoda has bound to have one fit for the big screen.
