Nearly every minute, since Disney announced the making of the new Star Wars Trilogy, there is a new fan theory or rumor popping up in the internet. One of the best researched theories that I have read in the last few weeks, is from a user called Lumpawarroo.
He claims that
Jar Jar Binks was a trained Force user, knowing Sith collaborator, and will play a central role in The Force Awakens
For those who have not seen the Star Wars movies a few hundred times, Jar Jar Bink is a synonym for a clumsy idiot. He literally bumbled his way from the village clown to a senator who helped the Emperor come to power.
Lumpawarroo explains how Jar Jar in reality is a skilled warrior. There is a scene in the movies where he easily executes a standing 20 foot twisting somersault, the kind we have only seen done by force users. His survival on the battlefield was not a matter of pure luck but his use of a technique similar to Zui Quan, a martial art’s style that imitates a drunkard. Lumpawarroo impressively supports his ideas with GIFs showing the scenes he is talking about.
The interesting part of his theory is that he believes, Jar Jar was supposed to be the surprise villain, the dark counterpart of Yoda, but because the fans didn’t really like him, Lucas decided to write in Count Dooku, and change the plot. Despite the alleged changes in the story, Lupawarroo still thinks that in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jar Jar could reappear in his original bad guy role as Supreme Leader Snoke!
If you are a big Star Wars fan and love indulging into rumors and speculations, read his original post here, but remember to watch all sequences and maybe read the comments.
