Jar Jar Binks, one of the most hated disbelievers in the fandom of Star Wars is the subject of a new fan theory, which might just make you despise Gungan even more.
Binks is seen by fans as a symbol of everything wrong with the prequel trilogy Star Wars by George Lucas: as annoying, clumsy and funny as a bone marrow transplant.
This fan theory, however, postulated by / u / theyusedthelamppost up / r / FanTheories suggests that the Sith were very aware of Jar Jar’s complete incompetence and used it in their favor. In essence, Jar Jar was “just following orders”: the banality of evil.
It ticks two huge boxes as far as any fan theory is concerned Star Wars: Snatching one of the worst characters in franchise history, but it still makes complete sense. Binks somehow finding himself in the middle of the company of the Jedi is surprising in the prequels, considering he doesn’t seem to be even slightly good at anything.
Palpatine’s rise to power in the prequels is due to his gas lighting and senate mind, which, for Revenge of the Sith , includes Binks as a senator. Binks even proposes that Chancellor Palpatine be granted emergency powers in Attack of the Clones which helps pave the way for the rise of the Empire.
Basically, Jar-Jar is the worst man in the galaxy and in theory he can be blamed for anything bad that happens. But maybe George Lucas warned us about all this during the production of The Phantom Menace when he has noted that “Jar Jar is the key to all of this”.
