Star Wars confirmed Jar Jar Binks' tragic fate, and you probably missed it

Star Wars confirmed Jar Jar Binks' tragic fate, and you probably missed it

Was Jar Jar Binks just misunderstood?

Ah, Jar Jar Binks, an annoyance to millions of those who sat through the prequel Star Wars trilogy never to be seen again (well, mostly).

Jar Jar Binks made his debut in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace and appeared in the two movies that followed, Clone Wars and Revenge of the Sith. However, with the two movies that followed The Phantom Menace, the role and appearances of Jar Jar Binks were drastically reduced.

We could be here all day listing the reasons why many people didn't like poor Jar Jar Binks, but in a nutshell, he’s just annoying and has me hoping that he’d fall victim to an RKO out of nowhere. However, I’m sure there are plenty of Star Wars fans who love Jar Jar Binks, for some reason.

That being said, what happened to Jar Jar Binks after Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, a movie in which his appearance was practically nonexistent at that point? To be nice to Jar Jar Binks, I like to think that he was killed by a Sith but reborn as the Jedi Kelleran Beq in that epic episode ‘The Foundling’ in episode four, season three of The Mandalorian.

Yet, there may be a more official explanation as to what really happened to Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars lore. According to, his fate is much sadder than being hit with an RKO or being reborn as a Jedi, apparently, he’s a street-performing clown or at least, he was.

A section on claims that following the Battle of Endor, which I assume is either 1983’s Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi or 1985’s made-for-TV movie Ewoks: The Battle for Endor, Jar Jar Binks was booted out of the Gungan swamps (again) and was made homeless, despite the continued loyalty he had shown in the fight against the Republic.

Desperate for cash, he later found a gig as a street-performing clown, which to be fair, is very suited to his annoying traits. It is said that he aimed to put smiles on the faces of children for the rest of his living days (unless he’s dead now), which is assuming he wasn't also rejected by the children, which is a strong possibility.
