Ahmed Best - who played Jar Jar Binks in George Lucas' Star Wars prequels - recently revealed to Entertainment Weekly a deleted scene from the third and final film in the trilogy, Revenge Of The Sith, which revealed what would happen to his character.

In Revenge of the Sith, there was a scene that was cut where I’m walking down a long pathway with Ian McDiarmid before he is turned into the Emperor. And Palpatine kind of thanks Jar Jar for putting him in power. It’s a really interesting scene, and it shows the evolution of Jar Jar from this fun-loving kid’s character into this manipulated politician. And it was an interesting arc for the character that I thought could have been explored, because the scene is really dark. But it just didn’t fit in the movie, which I understand. But yeah, George’s take on it is Jar Jar is now just a politician.


Not very revealing, but interesting nonetheless. Personally I'm glad they kept it out (although I would've preferred if Jar Jar had never existed in the first place) because it does seem like an unnecessary scene.

There's more from the actor in the link below. Would you have preferred if this scene had been kept in? Share your thoughts in the usual place.

Who wouldn't have wanted him to be killed? :P

He's the only reason anybody needs to not like TPM. Lol

He almost killed the prequel trilogy for me. Glad he was hardly in Revenge Of The Sith.
And I would've paid to see him killed by Darth Vader after the fall of the Republic. :D

My favorite part is where the cartoon rabbit steps in the poopies and he's like: "icky icky goo" and you laugh, the kids laugh, the dog laughs and i die a little inside.

Jar Jar was gay. The prequels already sucked bad enough, but having him in the prequels ruined it even worse for me.

@teabag

Poor Ahmed Best doesnt get any love lol
PaulRom - 2/11/2012, 6:57 AM
I thought Portman was decent, she was just very poorly written. Made the character pretty unlikable.
xXkryptoniteXx - 2/11/2012, 7:04 AM
Movie had overall bad directing and especially when george has good actors in it ewan mcgreager and Natalie portman. Hydan christinasin just suck in acting.
Ceejay - 2/11/2012, 7:07 AM
How's any of what he described "Dark"?? It's stupid, yeah but "Dark"??

Jar Jar barely has a working braincell above the average Gungun yet somehow (only in Star Wars land) he gets promoted from outcast to General to Senator without showing any leadership qualities, any grasp of language skills or eloquence and zero knowledge of Politics!

Star Wars fans don't watch these films for anything other than more new special effects because these stories and plots are devised for idiots!
BigK1337 - 2/11/2012, 7:08 AM
Strange, I thought this is the scene George Lucas wanted to use that reveals Jar Jar's fate.



It kind of makes sense really, seeing that Jar Jar is one of the most hated Star Wars character.

@Tea "journey towards your arse side is complete"= Oscar and rotfl
Ceejay - 2/11/2012, 7:53 AM
@ckal - lol, Now THAT would have been something to see!
Akercocke - 2/11/2012, 7:59 AM
I heard he changed his name to Ronaldihno
superbatspiderman - 2/11/2012, 8:11 AM
I would rather him get killed by Palpatine or Anakin.

Jar jar should have been used as a tragic character.

Now hear me out on this. For fantasy nerds, recall the idea of the kender (tasselhoff) from the dragonlance series., Geez this takes me back to middle school.

They were annoying as shit and they were stupid but they made great tragic characters when they finally broke and became depressed and stuff about all the war.

Jar Jar could have been used the same way, stupid and annoying and innocent in the first movie and then a broken shell of a creature after the rise of the empire, who throws himself out of his window.

@teabag

in other news your photos are still the bomb made me laugh...

BatSlam - 2/11/2012, 9:51 AM
it doesn't actually reveal his fate though, there is nothing here that changes his life or is the end of his life or anything like that. It isn't really revealing JarJar's Fate, just a deleted scene that was cut out because it was exactly nothing.

@ Neo - rofl

@TwlightHunter

Lol. Why James Cameron?
nailbiter111 - 2/11/2012, 10:46 AM
Lucas passed on it because he could put them on a couch during the scene.
m0th3r - 2/11/2012, 11:00 AM
I always thought Vader should have killed him in episode 3. Would have served a nice story purpose, and made the fans very happy.
blkyank - 2/11/2012, 12:51 PM
Jar Jar survived to see the fall of the Empire.If you listen close,you can hear him yelling
"Weeza free" During the Naboo portion of the celebration montage at the end of the special addition of Return of the Jedi.

@teabag

lmao always better with girls! ;)..lol
blkyank - 2/11/2012, 1:12 PM
It all started going down hill with Return of the Jedi when Lucas felt he had to change the name from Revenge of the Jedi because somehow Luke should not what to avenge the Billions of people who died as a result of the Emperor and his father.That's like saying Himmler should be forgiven because he saved his own son from Hitler when the war was lost anyway.And what was the idea making Luke and Leia brother and sister that had to be hidden from Vader and the Emperor? Great idea making her a Senator's daughter who's duties when she inherited his seat,would require her to interact with the Emperor for political and social events.If the guy couldn't pick up such Force potential right in front of him how tough could he be?

NeoBaggins - 2/12/2012, 3:46 AM
@SLEDGE lmao Some consider it to be... unnatural.

@PiggyV01 I agree. You hit the nail on the head, Sir.
