Alright, I’ve been perplexed about this video all day, and maybe some of you can help be straighten out what’s going on here. It’s supposedly a deleted scene from Star Wars: Episode I that shows Jar Jar Binks biting the dust. In the clip, Obi-wan and Qui-gon manage to get out of their submarine-thing once it surfaces, but the pull of a waterfall threatens to pull it off a cliff. The two Jedi make it out, but Jar Jar can’t escape and is dashed against the rocks below.
Now, is this really, ridiculously clever editing, or is this actually a deleted scene? Were they honestly considering killing Binks off like this in episode one? Is it a deleted scene someone modified to make it look like he died? How did a submarine surface on the top of waterfall? So many questions.
What do you make of this? Legit or wishful thinking?
