Jar Jar Binks Makes Incognito Plea to Ron Howard for Han Solo Movie Role
Meesa thinks it's a long shot.
In a recent Funny or Die clip, Jar Jar Binks makes a plea to Ron Howard to be added into the Han Solo spinoff after it was announced this week the Apollo 13 director was taking the reins of the pic.
Jar Jar is in disguise for the nearly two-minute faux clip in which he praises Howard's work and says he knows the mostly unpopular Phantom Menace character would be a great addition.
"The best choice would be to put Jar Jar in the movie," says Jar Jar with his voice changed. "Jar Jar Binks is a beloved character who is in great shape right now."
The incognito Jar Jar really pushes his luck with the request.
"If you really want to turn this movie around, you have got to get Jar Jar in there, and not just a supporting role," he says. "Maybe it's a Jar Jar movie now."
Jar Jar is sure if it happens, he and Howard will be good pals.
"Maybe they could become lifelong friends, ride tandem bikes and shit," he says.
