You mean like he has the last 9000000000000000000 times this was asked?
You and me both George.
In his position I'd probably be taking the piss too
Well, he was the key to all this.
Jar Jar is to George Lucas as Westly Crusher was to Gene Rodenberry, both are OC fanfics.
When my mum took me to see Episode 1 when I was a kid, we were laughing so much at how stupid the character was and a few people in front of us were not amused. I kinda feel bad about it now but even 10 year old me thought it was stupid.
Jar Jar is not as bad as people used to make him out to be
Jar Jar is a sith lord. We never got to see the greatest bamboozle in all of early 2000 mainstream film because George caved in.
I don't believe him. George Lucas is a compulsive liar and this is probably just him trolling people.
A character is slowly moving through a darkened area, knowing that a great evil is lurking in the darkness. Cautiously, they slowly move around and stop to try and look through the shadows. They hear a lightsaber turn on behind them, it's red light highlighting a distinct face behind them. A bead of sweat goes down their face as they hear the character speak.
"Mesa called Jar Jar Binks....."
You have to be quite literally be retarded to have Jar Jar Binks as your favourite character, like I did.
Lucas thought that most of the ideas in the prequel were good ideas. I don't think he knows how to troll people.
He's a bit more tolerable in the Clone Wars series.
I mean, look at those eyes
He IS a sithlord.
It's just people riding the bandwagon. Never thought he was annoying, in fact when I saw it as a kid (the targeted age group) I liked him, thought he was just a funny idiot.
Shitlord would be more appropriate
"A shit... lord?"
note about Lucas's choices,
final cut we all know:

THEY SPEAK BASIC ON WHAT?
The prequels aren't even really his fault. Not entirely, anyway. He was trying to get someone else to direct episode 1 for a while. But everyone he asked turned him down. And Coca-Cola REALLY wanted him to direct it. So he finally gave in. And even then, he knew he'd failed when they watched the rough cut. But nobody else would say what needed to be said, until long after the whole trilogy was done.
Like, when everyone around you declares you the chosen one - never mind all the other people involved in making your movies successful (like his fucking wife who won an oscar for helping to save the original in the edting room) - it's damn hard for that NOT to go to your head. And despite all of that, he's still a lot less of an asshole than the majority of people living in hollywood. He's been trying to build low income householding in his area for ages, and fighting literally every other rich person living there. And he literally paid for the beloved Clone Wars TV show out of his own pocket. (Seriously, that showas hella expensive. That's why Disney canceled it as soon as they bought the franchise. Shareholders are universally less generous than George Lucas.)
For anyone else interested, I decided to google that Sith Jar Jar Binks "fan theory", wasn't all too familiar with it and found this reddit thread:
[Theory] Jar Jar Binks was a trained Force user, knowing Sith collaborator, and will play a central role in The Force Awakens
Obviously that last bit in the title is wrong, and all the evidence in the thread - while compelling - could still be argued as highly interpretive.
And then I saw this:
I didn't know about any of this before so to be honest all this is fucking wild. I dislike Jar Jar as much as anyone but this may have retroactively "fixed" the reception of Phantom Menace if they went ahead with it, Jar Jar's actor kind of confirmed it a while ago as well so it appears this was the original intention with the character, a shame it never came to pass.
I want to believe the Jar Jar sith theory, I really do, as that would totally make up for the fact that otherwise he is a god damn garbage character
There's something oddly interesting about a long hated idiot character secretly being an evil genius. I wish the plot was used/true. Speaking as someone who isn't really a "fan" of Starwars but
has seen all the films.
I mean Jar Jar was solely responsible for giving absolute power to Palpatine in the Senate, so he basically is the main reason why Palpatine got into his position of oower6
I still don't buy the Darth Jar Jar theories one bit, but Jar Jar being the character who basically ruined the Star Wars galaxy ontinues to get a chuckle from me.
