Star Wars Episode 8: Rian Johnson backs the Jar Jar Binks is a Sith theory

Written by

Star Wars: Episode 8's director, Rian Johnson, seems to be backing that crazy 'Jar Jar Binks is a Sith' theory. Check out his tweet below...

Have you guys heard the ridiculous Star Wars theory claiming that Jar Jar Binks is in fact a Sith Lord? We knew about it, and it's a fun theory, but we never took it too seriously. We honestly never for one second believed that George Lucas ever came up with the idea that Jar Jar Binks was a Sith, it's just way too far fetched. However, Star Wars: Episode 8's director, Rian Johnson, has been fanning the theoretical flames on this one. He should be hard at work editing Episode 8 and making sure that the film is every bit as good as we hope it will be. Yet, he recently took some time out of his busy schedule to post a brilliant tweet on the Jar Jar Binks is a Sith theory. Check it out below.

When it comes to Star Wars, there are too many rumours and theories to keep up with, yet this Jar Jar Binks one is probably the most well-known of all, mainly due to its sheer improbability. However the theory itself is pretty well thought out. Just in case you are slightly unfamiliar with the theory, check out Vincent Vendetta's video which explains it all perfectly. Unfortunately, Johnson's tweet tells us absolutely nothing about Episode 8. We still know next to nothing about the sequel to The Force Awakens, but we've heard rumours suggesting that Rey could be Emperor Palpatine's granddaughter, which seems pretty unlikely, but would be a really cool twist.
