A new rumor has surfaced from a reliable Star Wars site indicating that Jar Jar Binks will return for Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+.
According to Making Star Wars, early CGI work for the character has begun. The site also reports that Kenobi and Binks will share a scene together talking about the past, which would possibly mean events from The Phantom Menace, where the two spent most of their time together. If true, it is not known how big the role will be or if Ahmed Best will return to reprise the role.
Kenobi will be set eight years after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, which puts it 11 years before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope. Reports have surfaced that the series is currently casting a young Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia.
There has also been speculation that the series could also overlap with some of the characters from Solo: A Star Wars Story, which would make a lot of sense as the film reveals the return of Darth Maul. However, Maul and Obi-Wan had a rematch in Star Wars: Rebels which is considered canon.
Directed by Deborah Chow, who received praise for her work on The Mandalorian, will take on directing duties for Obi-Wan. The series will be written by Hossein Amini (Drive). No release date has been announced as of yet.
