OK, it’s fair to say that no-one is really a big fan of the prequel trilogy’s Jar Jar Binks. But do we want to see him dead? I’ll not answer that, i’ll just let you read how JJ Abrams apparently does.
In the latest issue of Vanity Fair, the director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens joked that he almost put a dead Jar Jar in as an easter egg for the fans:
While watching a sequence with spaceships flying low over a desert planet, JJ asks to pause the scene, and with a light pen draws a little squiggle: “I have a thought about putting Jar Jar Binks’s bones in the desert there,” he adds, to laughter.
He continues: “I’m serious! Only three people will notice, but they’ll love it.”
So we almost got what many have wanted ever since Episode I in 1999… at least it once again shows that Abrams knows what the fans want
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi, and features a new generation of swashbuckling heroes and shadowy villains, as well as the return of fan-favorite smugglers, princesses, and Jedi.
