You just can’t get a good Gungan down, no matter how much people would like him to stay down. Making Star Wars reports that Jar Jar Binks is rumored to have a part in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series for Disney+, which will star Ewan McGregor in the title role.

Deborah Chow, who also directed episodes of The Mandalorian, will direct this series as well. So far all that is known about a possible Jar Jar appearance is that “early work” was conducted to bring the character back. Jar Jar reportedly has a beard that is to show “where’s he’s been and what his life has bene like” since Order 66 and the rise of the Galactic Empire. It’s unknown if Ahmed Best will reprise the role, but he previously voiced Jar Jar in Star Wars: the Clone Wars, outside of one episode.

The character last appeared in the Aftermath book series, where he was a clown for orphaned Naboo children after the events of Return of the Jedi. That means if you’re hoping for him to die in this series (which is set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope), you’re likely to be disappointed.
