International Talk Like Jar Jar Binks Day

The Week in Jar Jar: April 14th – April 20th, 2019

It’s The Week in Jar Jar for April 14th through April 20th, 2019!

Star Wars Celebration Chicago was still ongoing when the week began and most of our Jar Jar news this weeks stems from that. A whole lot of people were tweeting about meeting Ahmed Best at the convention.

Then on Monday Ahmed appeared on the Phantom Menace 20th Anniversary panel where he was interviewed by Warwick Davis. Ahmed Best got a standing ovation when he was announced as well of cheers of “Ahmed, Ahmed, Ahmed.” 


Ahmed spoke a little bit about what it was like portraying Jar Jar. Another cool part of the panel was when a message from George Lucas was played. George mentioned that Jar Jar was his favorite character and spoke about how great a job he thought Ahmed did in the role. This isn’t the first time he’s indicated how much he likes the character of Jar Jar, but it’s always nice to hear.

Ahmed was touched by the reaction he received at the panel.

All in all it seems like it was a positive experience for Ahmed, which is really great to hear. Let’s hope he’ll be at more conventions in the future, and that the fans continue to show him the love he deserves.


Also at SWCC some fans gave Ahmed a book they had put together, showing him how much they appreciate him.

With the release of the Episode IX teaser trailer, it was only a matter of time before someone modified it to include Jar Jar. 

I’d certainly pay money to see “The Rise of Jar Jar.”

This week we also found out that on May 4th, the Disney Store will give out a free lithograph, with Jar Jar on it, to the first 50 guests who make a purchase at the store.

And that’s it for this week. What did I miss? Email me an email, palo and let me know!

P.S. There are now only 121 more days until International Talk Like Jar Jar Binks Day!
