[Theory] Jar Jar Binks was a trained Force user, knowing Sith collaborator, and will play a central role in The Force Awakens »

From a post on Reddit:

Here I will seek to establish that Jar Jar Binks, far from being simply the bumbling idiot he portrays himself as, is in fact a highly skilled force user in terms of martial ability and mind control.

Furthermore, I assert that he was not, as many people assume, just an unwitting political tool manipulated by Palpatine– rather, he and Palpatine were likely in collaboration from the very beginning, and it’s entirely possible that Palpatine was a subordinate underling to Binks throughout both trilogies.

And finally, given the above, I will conclude with an argument as to why I believe it is not only possible, but plausible that Jar Jar will make a profound impact on the upcoming movies, and what his role may be.

If you’re into Star Wars at all, go read the entire post. The theory laid out is kind of bananas (ok, a lot bananas), but it’s also fascinating and makes some sense. I’M SO CONFLICTED.

Note: I meant to post this a while ago when I first saw it, but I forgot until a conversation I saw on Twitter this morning made me think of it.
