LOS ANGELES, July 1 (UPI) -- Samuel L. Jackson believes his Star Wars character, Jedi Master Mace Windu is still alive.
Jackson revealed his theory while answering a question regarding Windu's death during a recent Q&A session with fans on Twitter.
"As in most Star Wars movies, it was George Lucas' idea to kill Mace Windu," Jackson explained in a short video. "In my mind, I'm not dead," he continued. "Jedi can fall incredibly high distances and not die."
Windu was last seen in Lucas' 2005 prequel trilogy finale, Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith seemingly falling to his death after he was betrayed by Anakin Skywalker during a battle with The Emperor.
Jackson further elaborated on his theory while appearing on Entertainment Weekly Radio Wednesday stating, "Jedi can fall from amazing distances. And there's a history of one-handed Jedi so why not?"
The actor even spoke to Lucas about Windu possibly being alive and laying low following Episode III just as Obi-Wan Kenobi did on Tatooine. "George is like, 'I'm okay with that. You can be alive,'" he shared.
On Wednesday, it was announced that the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles would be honoring Jackson with the Albert R. Broccoli Britannia Award for Worldwide Contribution to Entertainment. The prize will be bestowed at this year's British Academy Britannia Awards on Oct. 28 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
