Jar Jar Binks Stars in Rogue One Parody Trailer, Rogue Binks: A Star Wars Story

"Jar Jar is the key to all of this."

Daaaaamn Jessica’s here, back at it again with those sick Rogue One trailer mashups. (Is this still a meme the youths use? I don’t know. Help me.)

So far, we’ve seen the Rogue One trailer mashed up with Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage,” and the theme from Friends. Now, though, here’s the one trailer mashup that stands above them all: Rogue Binks: A Star Wars Story.

It’s exactly what it says on the box: this is a version of the new Rogue One trailer re-done with Jar Jar Binks added in place of a few of the characters. What makes this trailer so good, though, isn’t necessarily the addition of Jar Jar (though that is, in and of itself, hilarious). It’s the fact that murdockmotion added in video of George Lucas as the villain and they added in an edited clip of Princess Leia singing the Life Day song from the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special. Can you believe it?! Better believe it.

A small part of me marvels at how often people bring up Jar Jar Binks when discussing all the new movies and such. Remember the popular fan theory that said Jar Jar Binks was actually a Sith master controlling the events of the prequels? And remember all those bits of fan art that brought Jar Jar Binks back in such a a role? Heck, even murdockmotion made a Star Wars: The Binks Awakens trailer, parodying The Force Awakens, too.

It’s almost like people want Jar Jar to come back.
