Star Wars - Where are they now

The other day something odd occurred to me. Now that George Lucas has completed his 6 Star Wars movies, what will happen to all of the star wars characters. I don't really think the world can take another 3 movies, and star wars characters surely can't survive just by appearing conventions for the rest of their lives. So what are they doing now?

Let's take a look!

Mace Windu was recently spotted by a photographer and he is apparently training in an attempt to make the majors next season. No word yet on whether or not he will be able to continue using his lightsaber-bat.


Some of the Key figures in recent trilogy did a brief tour promoting star wars related merchandise. Sadly, work like this dried up very quickly.

Obi Wan, noticing that his royalty payments were shrinking, went on a far reaching campaign to stamp out piracy.

Going back to Episode I, Darth Maul attempted to work briefly in advertising. The campaign for milk, however, scared more people than it enticed. I understand he is currently negotiating a contract to advertise "half-n-half" instead. I think that's a bit more fitting.

Also from Episode I, Qui Gon Jinn, decided to cash in on his fame and change his name so he could become the official spokesman of a new high end liquor.

Various jedi have also put their training to use in the dance studio and started advertising a new line of ipods.


I imagine master Yoda could see this coming a mile away. Darth Vader, down and out, has really found himself on hard times. After all, what career can bounce back from killing the emperor, his one and only supporter.
