There's a strong argument to be made for Jar Jar Binks being the most hated character in all of Star Wars canon, and in your darkest hours you might have found yourself wondering what happened to the clownish Gungan after the Republic fell and all his friends died or turned evil.
Well, wonder no more, as Chuck Wendig's new canon novel, Aftermath: Empire's End, has revealed the miserable fate of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace's least-beloved star.
(Warning: Contains spoilers for Aftermath: Empire's End, naturally.)
Part of the book is set on Naboo, the home of Binks and Padmé Amidala and the setting of Phantom Menace's climax (all this via Mashable).
There, a refugee called Mapo meets a street performer, clowning around for the entertainment of children, while the adults seem to carefully ignore him.
The performer introduces himself as – you guessed it – Jar Jar Binks.
It turns out that Binks survived the rise of the Empire, but has become a pariah, thanks in part to his unwitting role as in voting in emergency powers for Chancellor Palpatine at the start of the Clone Wars – a major step on Palpatine's path to becoming Emperor.
In many ways this mirrors real life, as we've heard plenty of anecdotal evidence that the incomprehensible racial stereotype that adults hate is quite popular with kids. Oh, and George Lucas.
Haters out there might take some comfort in knowing that Binks lived on, shunned and forgotten for his crimes against the Republic and cinema.
Sadly, this pretty much refutes the theory that Binks is a Sith lord and was manipulating all the events of the prequels. Unless he's playing a really long game.
Star Wars: Aftermath – Empire's End is the third volume in a trilogy set in the aftermath of Return of the Jedi, with the New Republic fighting off the remnant of the Empire's forces. It will be released on 23 February.
