Jar Jar Binks, the most despised character in the Star Wars Universe, is the subject of one of a mind-blowing theory that's been taking the Internet by storm. This fan theory reveals the Gungan introduced in Star Wars Episode I: Phantom Menace is actually a Master SIth Lord! At first I thought it sounded ridiculous: there's no way a wacky character be a Sith Lord, but after seeing the well-explained Reddit post explaining the theory, I was compelled.
Now, thanks to YouTuBer Vincent H. Valentine, we got an accompanying video that explains this insane theory, highlighting parts of the Star Wars prequels that might convince you that Jar Jar is indeed a Master Sith Lord. Watch the video here:
The theory basically boils down to this: Jar Jar Binks is a Sith collaborator and trained Force user, somehow clever enough to infiltrate the Jedi Council and convince the entire Galactic Senate to hand power over to Palpatine, who later becomes Darth Vader's master. The theory claims that Jar Jar Binks is actually at the top of the chain, the master of Palpatine.
The video does a convincing job of arguing in Jar Jar's favor. I really wish that Jar Jar being a Sith Lord was Lucas' original intention. That would have made his character mroe intriguing, kind of like Tobi/Obito from the Naruto anime/manga.
