This Fan Theory Has Reddit Convinced Jar Jar Binks Was The Greatest Sith Lord Of All Time

It's no secret that Jar Jar Binks is one of the most unpopular characters in the Star Wars universe. Even Emperor Palpatine, an old evil dude who committed genocide across the galaxy has a higher approval rating than the dopey Gungan.

It is human instinct to impose structure and meaning onto ideas we don't understand, which perhaps explains why one of the most compelling Star Wars fan theories suggests that Jar Jar is actually the most powerful Sith Lord in the entire series. 

One Reddit thread in particular delivers an epic Jar Jar Binks fan theory on par with the best tales from the Star Wars canon. This "Darth Jar Jar" theory suggests that the Gungan has been the mastermind behind the Sith all along, and that it will be revealed that Supreme Leader Snoke is actually the bumbling alien from the prequels. 

Sound crazy to you? Well, Redditor "Lumpawarroo" actually makes a pretty convincing argument! Ranker breaks it down for you:
