Hero Overview

Meesa Jar Jar Binks.
~ Jar Jar Binks

Jar Jar Binks is a recurring character in the Star Wars franchise. He was a Gungan military officer and politician during the waning days of the Galactic Republic. His clumsy behavior had, at one point in his life, led to his exile from Gungan society, but he was welcomed back by his people following his efforts during the Trade Federation Invasion of Naboo. He is a major character in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, a supporting character in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and a minor, yet extremely influential character in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

He was portrayed by Ahmed Best.

Biography

The Phantom Menace

Jar Jar aided Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi in their rescue of Naboo's queen, Padmé Amidala and, with Padmé and the Jedi, traveled off-world to Tatooine and Coruscant, before returning to liberate his planet from the Federation. Upon his return, Jar Jar helped to forge an alliance between the Gungans and the Naboo, ending years of mistrust.

For his efforts, he was promoted to Bombad General and served in the Gungan Grand Army during the Battle for Naboo. He later attended the funeral of Qui-Gon who had been killed by Darth Maul.

Attack of the Clones

Sometime after the events of The Phantom Menace, Jar Jar moves to Coruscant to become a Senior Representatives for his people in the Galactic Senate, serving under Padmé. He temporarily takes her place as senator when she goes into hiding after an assassination attempt on her life.

Jar Jar was manipulated by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine into proposing that the Senate grant the Chancellor emergency powers that would allow him to create an army to combat the Separatists. This lead to the creation of the army deployed by the Republic during the Clone Wars.

Revenge of the Sith

Jar Jar was present when Palpatine transformed the Republic into the Empire, thus changing the Galactic Senate into the Imperial Senate.

He later attended Padmé's funeral on Naboo after her death on Polis Massa, while giving birth to Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, as a result of resulting the loss the will to live following the fall of his friend Anakin Skywalker into the dark side.

Later in life

For his role in the rise of Palpatine's Empire Jar Jar found himself banished by his people once again. Additionally the human adults wanted nothing to do with Jar Jar either for much the same reason.

A year after the Battle of Endor, Jar Jar was living in Theed and working as a street performer, entertaining children by performing a variety of tricks. During this time he became friends with the orphan Mapo.

Trivia

  • Comically, in his bio, Jar Jar has "Hard To Describe" or something similar in his profile's Talents slot.
  • Jar Jar's canon fate was finally revealed in the novel Aftermath: Empire's End, in which he had returned to Naboo by the time of the Battle of Jakku and subsisted as a street performer.
  • Because of Palpatine's manipulation, Jar Jar is indirectly responsible for the creation of the Empire as well as the destruction of the Jedi Order.
  • A popular internet theory has arisen that Jar Jar was actually a powerful Sith Lord who played the fool to divert suspicion away from himself. The Robot Chicken series touched on this by having Palpatine call Jar Jar to apologize for getting him to support emergency powers for the Chancellor. Pulling a Sith robe over his head, this Jar Jar laughs at the idea that Palpatine manipulated him.
  • Jar Jar has become one of the most hated characters throughout the Star Wars series due to his annoying attitude, racist references, granted Palpatine more power, and being the source of the creation of the Empire and destruction of the Jedi Order.
  • Jar Jar makes an appearance in Angry Birds: Star Wars, where he is portrayed by an unknown bird. His ability is to use his tongue to latch onto an object you target. He will be released when you press the screen again. This power is similar to the ability Zam Wessel has.
  • An achievement/trophy in LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga called "Crowd Pleaser" requires the player to "Break Jar Jar 20 times". This is a joke about Jar Jar's widespread criticism and infamy, which has since turned Jar Jar into a meme and possibly the most hated character in all of Star Wars.
