J.J. Abrams Almost Killed Jar Jar Binks For ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

If there were ever a time Neeson needed to use his particular set of skills…

Vanity Fair continues to impress with new details about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. After releasing the cover photo, additional pictures, and details about Lupita Nyong’o and Adam Driver’s characters, they’ve started releasing snippets from their interview with director J.J. Abrams, the full version of which is on newsstands today. We already heard Abrams had to tone down all of the Star Wars references and Easter eggs he wanted to jam into The Force Awakens, but Vanity Fair just revealed one Easter egg we wish he’d left in:

J.J. Abrams: “I have a thought about putting Jar Jar Binks’s bones in the desert there. I’m serious! Only three people will notice, but they’ll love it.”

That’s right, while some people were trying to jam more Jar Jar into the movie, Abrams was thinking about killing the Gungan bastard. We could have had it all, you guys. Now all we have is this GIF, which I’ve been watching for a solid hour.
