Jar Jar Binks wields a lightsaber to save a friend in peril. I swear we’re not making this up, it happens in the Star Wars Age Of Republic comic. Like it or not, this is official canon material.

Now Jar Jar Binks has always been canon, he never went away. We’ve asked over and over to please be done with him, yet he always pops up. Now, I have to be honest, it’s not that bad and it’s actually very fitting for a comic book. I am no fan of Jar Jar on screen, but since he is a very recognizable Star Wars character, this is the best place for him.

The guys over at Star Wars Theory put together a quick little video on the subject. Take a look and let us know what you think in the comments below. May the Force be with you!
