George Lucas Says Jar Jar Binks Was Inspired By THIS Disney Character!

Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyStar Wars

no title

Jar Jar Binks is often regarded as one of the most despised characters in all of film.

But George Lucas still possesses an unconditional love for the Star Wars character that only a father could give.

At this weekend's D23 Expo, Lucas revealed that the character was actually inspired by a Disney character — Goofy! He explained:

"I can't even begin to tell you how much of an influence Disney has had on me. I will say one secret that nobody knows; not many people realize that Goofy was the inspiration for Jar Jar Binks…I know that you will look at him differently now. It's pretty obvious, actually, but, um, I love Goofy and I love Jar Jar."

We're happy someone loves Jar Jar, because the bumbling Gungan totally made our list of the most unintentionally annoying movie characters of all time! Find out who else made the list (below)!

Michael Jackson Wanted To Play Jar Jar Binks In Star Wars!? Find Out Why George Lucas Shot The Idea Down Here!

no title

The way you make Meesah feel?

Jar Jar Binks is considered one of film's most disliked characters of all time. But the clumsy, babbling Gugan in the Star Wars prequel trilogy could have been way more appealing — because the character was almost played by Michael Jackson!

Ahmed Best, the actor who played Binks, revealed that the King of Pop expressed interest in playing the creature using prosthetics and makeup like in his Thriller video, but George Lucas shot down the idea!

Best attended one of MJ's concerts with Lucas and Natalie Portman. Best explained that when he met Jackson backstage, Lucas introduced him to the pop icon as "Jar Jar"!

The actor revealed that after the concert, Lucas explained the reasoning behind the peculiar introduction, saying:

Throwback Thursday: The Original 1977 Star Wars Trailer Makes The Movie Look TERRIBLE! Watch HERE!!

The new teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens dropped today, and it is AH-Mazing!

In the spirit of Throwback Thursday, we took it way back to 1977 — when the trailer for the original Star Wars movie was released!

It's no argument that the original film with Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher holds up, as the classic film was light-years ahead of its time. But after watching the 1977 trailer for the hit Sci-Fi movie, we can't help but LOL! It's SO bad!

[ Video: Here's The Lost Carrie Fisher Interview That Will Make Any Star Wars Fan's Day! ]

Some of the Star Wars spirit is noticeably absent in the trailer, but that could be attributed to the lack of music from John Williams – who composed the iconic score to the franchise.

These days, trailers have evolved into fast paced marketing devices, which is evidently far, far, away from how they used to be.

Ch-ch-check out the nostalgic trailer (above) to watch a story "from the man who brought you American Graffiti" George Lucas about a boy, a girl, and a universe!
