International Talk Like Jar Jar Binks Day

Rian Johnson open to bringing Jar Jar Binks back in a future Star Wars film

In a recent interview with Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, Johnson was asked about his thoughts on a Jar Jar Binks comeback.

Rian Johnson responded in a positive manner: “I would be down with bringing old Jar Jar back – we’ll see.”

The┬áinterviewer then says that Jar Jar is due for a Mickey Rourke-esque like comeback, to which Johnson responds: “What if it was just like in the style of the Wrestler – except it was Jar jar and we shot it black and white.”

Will we actually see Jar Jar in Episode VIII or in the new trilogy Johnson’s developing? Time will tell. But the fact that he’s willing to at least entertain the idea and not immediately rip on the character, indicates he’s a pretty good guy. Things like this are exactly why I’m confident that Star Wars is in good hands with Rian Johnson being so heavily involved with the franchise in the coming years.
