Did George Lucas originally intend for Jar-Jar Binks to die!? In this newly discovered deleted scene, Jar-Jar appears to die in Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace when he fails to escape a waterfall.
Sadly, the clip isn’t real. YouTube user withmorten2 creatively recut some footage from The Phantom Menace that made it look like Jar-Jar Binks dies.
If only this clip was real and had made it into the final cut of The Phantom Menace. Personally I hate Binks. He’s annoying, ugly and has even been labeled racist. He has been called one of the worst parts of George Lucas‘ Star Wars prequels.
If this clip gets taken down (by the Disney/Star Wars lawyers), then let us know and we will find another source.
