‘Star Wars’: Lucasfilm Office Has Jar Jar In Carbonite

Star Wars Frozen Jar Jar
Jar Jar Binks is quite possibly the single most hated character in all of Star Wars, and apparently, the disdain for the maligned comic relief character is shared by enough people at Lucasfilm that they have a statue placing the character on ice.

The Star Wars Show co-host Anthony Carboni recently took viewers into a walkthrough of Lucasfilm’s inner offices in San Francisco, in the process showing off a lot of cool memorabilia. One thing he was particularly proud of was a fanmade statue putting Jar Jar on ice (seen at about 3:12-3:25 below):

It’s not easy being Gungan, eh? This same statue got a homage in the Legends game The Force Unleashed, where the frozen alien could be found inside the residence of an Imperial captain who had a thing for collecting trophies of the aliens he’s killed. At least the poor bugger got it better in the actual Star Wars canon, where he ended up being a street performer for children.

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi will rise on December 15, 2017. The movie’s cast includes Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Laura Dern as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke, Domhnall Gleeson as General Armitage Hux, Benicio Del Toro as “DJ”, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, and Jimmy Vee as R2-D2.

8 ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Off Movies We Really Want To See

Previous1 of 9

Star Wars-SagaMay the 4th be with you, everyone! Even on May the 8th! With Star Wars weekend in the rear-view mirror, it’s still a great time to kick back, get out your old glow-in-the-dark lightsaber toys and Darth Vader Halloween masks, and pop in those original trilogy DVDs. Maybe even all 8 currently-released films, if you’re up for the challenge (both mental and otherwise). Speaking of which, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just came out on Blu-ray, marking the first home release of many Star Wars spin-off movies to come.

Of these, only one future title has been confirmed – Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, to be released in May of 2018. Beyond that, we know Disney had at least two more planned, and probably more down the line. And why not? The Star Wars universe is so ripe for exploration. There are so many characters we were introduced to in the Saga movies that could easily get their own film. And it doesn’t stop there. The legacy of the Jedi and the Sith go back thousands of years, opening up virtually endless possibilities of story material.

Given this abundance of material just waiting to be tapped into, Heroic Hollywood decided to celebrate the Star Wars holiday by compiling a list of the Star Wars stand-alone movies we’d most like to see. While some of the films on this list are more likely to be developed than others, they each share one unifying factor: they’d all be freakin’ awesome!
