The foolish and standard on-line Star Wars fan principle that Jar Jar Binks was truly a secret Sith manipulating the occasions of the prequel trilogy is formally…nonetheless not canon. However a newly introduced (and non-canonical) Lego mini-series will characteristic the evil model of Jar Jar, full with purple lightsaber and evil voice.

Introduced on Might 6 (and never Might 4, for some motive) Star Wars: Rebuild the Galaxy is an upcoming four-part, Lego miniseries that can characteristic acquainted characters, places, and ships from the franchise, however twisted into new and remixed creations. For instance, X-Wings and TIE Fighters are actually combined collectively to kind TIE-Wings. One other instance: Darth Jar Jar—a purple lightsaber-wielding villain voiced by unique Binks actor Ahmed Finest.

Within the trailer, an previous traditional yellow Lego minifig Jedi is speaking to the primary characters about some occasion that has utterly destroyed and rebuilt the Lego Star Wars universe. Now Ewoks are bounty hunters, the Geonosians are Jedi, and the Rebels have AT-ATs. Up is down, down is up, and issues are getting bizarre in a manner I’m very joyful about. Star Wars is usually unwilling to do bizarre stuff with its characters and I’m joyful to see some non-canon shenanigans.

After all, the largest second within the trailer—the second that everybody shall be speaking about—is on the finish when Darth Jar Jar reveals up and says: “Mesa gonna harm yousa.” One other character screams: “DARTH JAR JAR!”, seemingly confirming that sure, Lucasfilm is straight referencing the favored on-line fan principle of the identical identify.

The total principle is way too lengthy and foolish to get into right here, however the gist of it’s that Jar Jar was secretly the evil mastermind behind the occasions of the prequel saga and helped put Sidious in energy and assisted within the destruction of the Jedi. And whereas Darth Jar Jar’s look on this new mini-series could be very humorous, I have to stress: This isn’t canon. Have your enjoyable, however don’t assume that is some large retcon of the prequels. It’s only a foolish Lego journey, okay?

Star Wars: Rebuild the Galaxy arrives on September 13 on Disney+.
