Lost Lucasfilm Archives Reveal George Lucas Planned A Jar Jar Origins Movie

Recently recovered files from a previously undisclosed archive at Lucasfilm reveals that George Lucas wasn’t quite done with the galaxy’s most hated creature.

A list was uncovered this week that claims Jar Jar Binks was indeed going to get the Star Wars Anthology treatment. In other words, a solo movie a la the upcoming confirmed Han Solo movie, or the recent Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It isn’t the only project cancelled by Disney upon their $4 billion acquisition of the company in 2012. Two prominent video games – one entitled “1313” which focused on Boba Fett and Courscant’s underworld, one surrounding Darth Maul’s pre-Episode I life – sadly were shelved.

Own Rogue One: A Star Wars Story this Tuesday

Perhaps Jar Jar’s origins would have explained why he was so unbearable, or even given us insight into whether or not Binks was truly the Sith Lord he was rumored to be. It’s not the first questionable decision the Father of the Force made during the prequel era of the Star Wars saga.

  1. I can just imagine the jar jar/sith training montage that would inevitably take place in the film.

    DARTH JAR JAR sits in dark isolation for days. Memories of DARTH JAR JAR, killing YOUNGLINGS with his bare hands, flash across the screen as OMINOUS MUSIC PLAYS.

    DARTH JAR JAR (narration): Meesa called jar jar binks. Meesa shall have revenge on the Jedi.

    DARTH JAR JAR opens his eyes to reveal entirely black eyeballs with blood red pupils as OMINOUS MUSIC reaches a CRESCENDO.
