… Fate of Jar Jar Binks!!!!!!!!!!!

"Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace will be remembered for a number of infamous things: midi-chlorians, racism, and uninspired acting, among them. But there's one face (and voice) that comes to mind when conjuring up the worst of the worst that the first (cinematically speaking) Star Wars film has to offer: Jar Jar Binks. This goofy Gungan klutz stumbled his way into the Skywalker Saga, becoming a military officer and ill-advised politician along the way. Binks not only drew criticism and outright hatred from fans of the Star Wars universe in our world, he also became the whipping boy (tadpole?) for rebels everywhere, having inadvertently granted Senator Palpatine emergency powers, powers he would go on to use to become the Emperor.

Binks has redeemed himself somewhat over the years thanks to his role in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, but his part as a political player was vastly diminished in the prequel trilogy and abandoned altogether in other media, such as the animated LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales, in which he's found floating through the vacuum of space outside the Death Star…

So sorry my friend…

Where is Captain Gideon when you needed? … (smile)

Poor Jar Jar… a sad ending for him…


nazrat19 Feb 2017 8:29 a.m. PST

So he's simply relegated to the exact same role he played in his first appearance? Not such an awful fate considering how much he is hated by fans of Star Wars…

Captain Gideon19 Feb 2017 9:10 a.m. PST

I was away but I'm back and I already knew about this book and I DON'T think it's a sad ending for Jar Jar Binks and he lasted longer that all of the Jar Jar haters thought he would.

JAR JAR LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yep. He's doing what Lucas intended – entertaining the 6 year olds. And leaving the space adventuring to the people with some talent for it.

Not the worst fate.

Well said Captain Giedeon… (smile)

Aw man, I was hoping that maybe Jar Jar was one of the hirelings that Han Solo had to help transport those Rathtars in The Force Awakens, you know the hirelings that got eaten by the aforementioned Rathtars. wink

Oh! My… (smile)

BLACKSTAR I was hoping for that gold plated droid would get blown to bits but it didn't happen not everyone gets what they want so deal with it.

JAR JAR LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Major Disaster) Inactive Member24 Feb 2017 11:58 a.m. PST

Captain Gideon, I too wish that Goldenrod was blown to bits. I hate him almost as much as Jar Jar Binks and the Ewoks. I hate the Ewoks more than Jar Jar, and I've been dealing with that frustration since 1983.

Captain Gideon24 Feb 2017 4:24 p.m. PST

BLACKSTAR I've hated that gold plated droid from the first movie to the 7th movie and the gold butler has been my worst SW character whereas Jar Jar is my all time favorite SW character.

chromedog24 Feb 2017 9:58 p.m. PST

Does that eyepatch ever chafe, Captain Gideon?

How's the depth perception?

Because you're as one-eyed a SW fan as I've ever seen (and there are some who are so one-eyed, you can call them a cyclops).

Captain Gideon25 Feb 2017 9:38 a.m. PST

No chromedog I don't wear an eyepatch why would you think that?

Is it because I like Jar Jar Binks?

I have my reasons for liking Jar Jar Binks and those reasons are my own I only tell people who can understand those reasons and you don't need to know.

And it's the same for me with C3PO and why I hate that character.

(Major Disaster) Inactive Member25 Feb 2017 12:01 p.m. PST

Maybe there is hope for Goldenrod after all…

Just Curious my dear Captain… which also character do you like from Star Wars…?


Captain Gideon25 Feb 2017 8:54 p.m. PST

I also like Admiral Ackbar and the NEW Mon Calamari Admiral from Rouge One.

These are the main ones but there are others.

Tango01 Supporting Member of TMP27 Feb 2017 10:49 a.m. PST


Any girl?


Ghostrunner27 Feb 2017 8:04 p.m. PST

Barring any on-screen evidence to the contrary, I always wondered if the Gungans were hermaphrodites seeing as how they are (alien) amphibians.

Guess that wouldn't make them 'girls' but at least gender-fluid.

For that matter, could apply to Mon Calamari as well – although they have two genders in several of the novels and comics.

Captain Gideon28 Feb 2017 2:56 p.m. PST

With regards to Girls in Star Wars I like the 2 in the Rebels Cartoon Herra and Sabine but that's about it.

Tango01 Supporting Member of TMP28 Feb 2017 4:13 p.m. PST

No Princess Leia?…


Captain Gideon28 Feb 2017 5:36 p.m. PST

No Princess Leia.
