Watch Jar Jar Binks Ruin ‘Star Wars’ Again in ‘The Force Awakens’ Fan Trailer
Of all the atrocities in George Lucas’ Star Wars prequels, Jar Jar Binks might have been the most offensive of them all — some fans felt as though the goofy CG alien character was maybe just a little bit racist, but mostly he was just very, very annoying. Thank goodness those days are behind us, right? Wrong! A new fan edit of the latest Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer revives everyone’s most hated character, letting Jar Jar (and ghost Anakin) ruin Star Wars for you all over again.
Above and beyond the hilariously bad concept of putting Jar Jar in every single scene in the new trailer, this fan edit serves an interesting purpose: reminding us how good we have it now that Disney and Lucasfilm are steering the franchise without Lucas’ involvement. Whether The Force Awakens ends up being amazing or just sort of okay, it can’t be anywhere near as bad as the prequels, and for this we should be grateful.
The edit comes from MurdockMotion, and inserts Jar Jar Binks in literally every scene in the trailer, whether he’s stumbling around on the sand near Rey and BB-8 or peering out of Darth Vader’s melted mask (it is incredibly creepy) or wielding a lightsaber under Kylo Ren’s cloak. Jar Jar Binks is a nightmare character, but an entire film with Jar Jar in every scene is like watching a preview of Hell.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens (with absolutely NO Jar Jar) arrives on December 18 — but you knew that because you already bought your tickets.
