Could the blame be put on Jar Jar Binks for Star Wars The Phantom Menace being the worst of the Star Wars movies and slightly better than the Star Wars Holiday Special? While I would agree that Jar Jar plays a big part of the disaster this character deserves a second chance.

The animated Clone Wars series, Jar Jar makes an appearance in episode called Bombad Jedi. If there was ever a redemption moment for the most hated character in the entire Star Wars Universe, that episode was it. Jar Jar being his usual clumsy self winds up rescuing Padme Amidala with C-3PO. The villains who captured Padme believe that Jar Jar is a Jedi though his actions which is not true but certain things pan out in Jar Jar’s favor. This episode help to demonstrate that rather than making Jar Jar a joke, he is in fact part of the joke and that makes a lot of difference to the audience or at least in my case.

The other side of the equation is to make Jar Jar even more looney as seen in Robot Chicken. Ahmed Best voices the stop motion animated Jar Jar Binks. He comes back to visit his friend Anakin but now as Darth Vader. Of course, Jar Jar keeps calling Anakin Annie Bo Bannie and keeps the annoying him to no end. Sadly, Jar Jar does perish but that doesn’t stop him for coming back and antagonize Anakin.

Now for something completely different, Jar Jar Binks is a Sith Lord? Yes. As the new movie was being released, I got around to watch this crazy theory on Youtube. What is even more insane is that I actually believe this far out theory. If we see Yoda for the first time as some weird garden gnome and later to be really a Master Jedi, what is stopping the Sith from doing the same thing? Jar Jar does fit the bill as a character that is not to be taken seriously but in reality that is the brilliance of working behind the scenes.

So, love him or hate, I think you might have a new appreciation Jar Jar Binks.

Issa bad news from Naboo… Ahmed Best, the actor who played Jar Jar Binks will never return to the ‘Star Wars’ movies, even if he was asked, adding ‘I’ve done my damage’. Binks, perhaps the most reviled character in all of ‘Star Wars’ history, was the Gungan soldier know initially for his cack-handed clumsiness, and then, appropriately, his latter career as a politician in George Lucas’s prequel movies.
