The most hated character in the Star Wars universe could be set for a return in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series.
The rumour comes from Making Star Wars, a site that has a very good track record on Star Wars scoops previously. We must stress, this is a rumour, and a big one at that, so take this with a grain of salt until we hear anything official.
“I’m told ‘Ben’ Kenobi crosses paths with his old friend from Naboo, Jar Jar Binks,” writes MSW’s Jason Ward. “Early work has been conducted for the CGI Gungan’s return to Star Wars. Jar Jar has a beard to reflect where he’s been and what his life has been like since they were all deceived by a great lie that ushered in the first Galactic Empire…I’m told there is a sequence where the bearded Jar Jar Binks and Obi-Wan talk about the past.”
No release date has been announced as of yet and filming has not begun so many details can still change. The series will be directed by Deborah Chow, who recently directed an episode of “The Mandalorian”.
Stay tuned for more information when it’s released.
