Rian Johnson ‘would be down’ with bringing Jar Jar in his new Star Wars trilogy

From Yahoo:

“Although Star Wars: The Last Jedi is still days away from release, writer-director Rian Johnson is already preparing an entirely original Star Wars trilogy that will focus on a set of new principal characters.

But will his future films return established characters from the Star Wars canon?

“I’m just starting to think about it, and get into, so who knows?” Johnson told Yahoo Entertainment. […]

Johnson entertained our notion of bringing back a certain much-maligned Gungan for a shot at redemption.

“I would be down with bringing old Jar Jar back — we’ll see,” Johnson said with a laugh.

Could Mr. Binks made a comeback à la Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler?

“What if it was just in the style of The Wrestler except it was Jar Jar?” Johnson countered. “We’d shoot it in black and white.”

We smell a blockbuster.”
