Variety Fair is getting ready to release it’s June issue that will place Star Wars The Force Awakens front and center of the magazine. While teasing the anticipated issue they have revealed that director J.J. Abrams has thought of bringing fan favorite Jar Jar Binks back to the sage. But it’s not what you may expect.
Here’s what Abrams told them.
“I have a thought about putting Jar Jar Binks’s bones in the desert there. I’m serious! Only three people will notice, but they’ll love it.” Abrams told Variety Fair.
I hate Jar Jar but I’m down with this!
Knowing that this is Abrams’ mindset as he directs a Star Wars film reassures me that he’s the right man for the project. I never remember George Lucas admitting Binks was a mistake, instead Lucas claimed that children loved him. Funny you never see many Jar Jar toys inside toy stores. Maybe it’s because kids don’t like that character? Just a thought.
The behind-the-scenes Star Wars Vanity Fair June issue is set to be released digitally on Thursday, May 7, and on newsstands nationwide on Tuesday, May 12. Make sure to check it out!
