The fate of Jar Jar Binks after Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith has been revealed!


Jar Jar Binks has long been lauded the Clown Prince of the Star Wars prequels. It’s no secret that many fans do not like the character at all, and now, thanks to a new Star Wars novel, we now know what happened to the goofy Gungan after the events of Revenge of the Sith….

Chuck Wendig’s Star Wars Aftermath: Empire’s End will be released on Tuesday, February 21, and when the novel hits bookstores, fans will get a small glimpse into what happened to one of the most polarizing characters in the Star Wars universe: Jar Jar Binks.

Love him or hate him, he has been one of the most talked about Star Wars character ever created by George Lucas. The bumbling Gungan often turned fans away because many thought he was too silly for the Star Wars films, and this writer agrees. Well, thanks to an article from Mashable, we know the floppy eared idiot’s fate.

Wendig’s trilogy of books — Star Wars: Aftermath — is known for having interludes between chapters where he often reveals well-known Star Wars characters or planets. It is during one of these interludes, which is set on Jar Jar’s home planet of Naboo, that we meet a refugee boy named Mapo. The boy runs into a Gungan performing as a clown, for kids on the streets of Naboo, all the while being avoided by the adults.

"“Meesa Jar Jar,” says the clown when Mapo introduces himself. The clown distracts the orphan from his own sadness by popping his eyes and bulging his cheeks, but is hiding a sadness of his own.“Jar Jar makin some uh-oh mistakens,” the Gungan says, explaining why he isn’t wanted anywhere either. “Desa hisen Naboo tink I help the uh-oh Empire.” He stares into the distance, suggesting he knows more than he’s saying."

So there you have it, Jar Jar Binks, once proud Senator from Naboo, the one who was manipulated into giving then Chancellor Palpatine control to create the Grand Army of the Republic, is now a lowly clown performing tricks for children on the streets of Naboo. Oh, how the mighty how fallen.
