Jar Jar Binks? More Like Darth Darth Binks

The worst fears of Star Wars fans have been realized. No, Rian Johnson has not been put in charge of the franchise, but Jar Jar Binks is now a real Sith Lord. Allow me to clarify. This isn’t official canon, but this image in which Jar Jar received a Darkside makeover is just as frightening as a Johnson led Lucasfilm.

There’s been plenty of memes and even wild theories about Jar Jar being skilled in the Darkside of the Force. However, those ideas were more on the lighter side of things. Simply implying Jar Jar used his abilities to make himself appear goofy, clumsy, and incredibly annoying.

However, the following piece of art from Twitter user Kevin Cassidy takes the idea a step further and gives us a real idea of what a Darkside-corrupted Jar Jar Binks might look like. You can check it out below if you’re feeling brave.

Looking far more intimidating and capable theesa a version of Jar Jar yousa nota wanna mess with.  His time wielding the Force as a Sith sure has taken a toll on former Representative Binks. As much as most Star Wars fans find Jar Jar annoying, he’s a part of a galaxy far, far away, and there’s nothing that can be done about that.

The Clone Wars version of Jar Jar was much more palatable. Perhaps someday the character will receive a full-on hero’s redemption. Now that would be what I call subverting expectations.

What do you think of this version of Jar Jar Binks? Let us know in the comments down below!
