Dear God, What If Jar-Jar Binks Was At The Center Of “Rogue One”?

Now meesa less excited for the new Star Wars movie.

Dear God, What If Jar-Jar Binks Was At The Center Of “Rogue One”?

WHAT: Rogue Binks, a retelling of the Rogue One trailer with 100% more Jar-Jar.

WHO: YouTuber MurdochMotion.

WHY WE CARE: It’s difficult to overstate the level of excitement surrounding the action-packed space caper, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This excitement is only rivaled perhaps by fans’ relief that Episode 7 had undone some of the damage to the beloved series wrought by the prequels. A new mashup video, however, combines the epitome of prequel-tarnish, Jar-Jar Binks, with the trailer for Rogue One, thus extinguishing all that hype in one incongruously Jamaican-accented fizzle. It’s funny because it’s untrue.
