A-List: If Quentin Tarantino directed the next Star Wars film

> The Jedi spirit of Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson) would narrate an arbitrary section of the film, but not appear in the movie.

> A moment would occur in which three protagonists point lightsabers at each other while swearing profusely — a.k.a. The Mandalorian Standoff.

> Characters would obsessively make philosophical allusions to junky pop culture irrelevant to the Star Wars universe.

> Uma Thurman, Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen and Christoph Waltz would be cast. Also, long-forgotten cult actors such as Mara Wilson (the kid from Matilda), Lark Voorhies (Lisa from Saved by The Bell) and Devon Sawa (from Final Destination) would be revitalized.

> A florid yet pointed interrogation scene would occur in which both parties search for answers to secrets.

> There would be lots of ultra-violence and at least one reference to feet or the massaging of feet.

> We’d see: a scene shot from the inside of a trunk; a scene in which a character looks at themselves in the mirror; dozens of visual swipes plucked from the universal subconscious of film.

> The soundtrack would comprise historically (and, in this case, galactically) inaccurate music but feel so right.
