How did Jar Jar Binks die?

He didn't. At least his death hasn't been portrayed in any official material as of yet. That said since the movies take place a long time ago, in theory he and all of the other characters we love in the Star Wars universe would all probably be dead by now, but in reality we don't actually know how long ago the Star Wars films took place, nor the lifespan of an average Gungan. So for all intents and purposes, Jar Jar Binks is alive, until we're told otherwise.

Is Jar Jar Binks a Sith Lord?

This is a theory that has been floating around for a number of years. Some people believe that George Lucas had originally planned on revealing a more sinister side to our favorite Gungan, Jar Jar Binks, but due to the backlash that the character received upon his introduction in The Phantom Menace, Lucas abandoned those plans in the subsequent prequel films. While this is a fun theory, we here at the International Talk Like Jar Jar Binks Day website think that it is unlikely that George Lucas actually had this in mind when writing TPM.
