Star Wars: The Force Awakens is only days away and reviews are mostly positive. In a recent interview with Conan O'Brien, Star Wars actor Andy Serkis joked that he is playing evil Jar Jar Binks.

Andy Serkis is actually playing a character called Supreme Leader Snoke. Not much is known about this character, but there have been rumors circulating that it could be an evil version of the Gungan. One fan theory claims that Binks is a trained Force user and Sith collaborator.

Jar Jar Binks has been a light-hearted point of focus leading up to the new Star Wars movie. JJ Abrams joked about creating a Netflix series featuring Binks, while Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy was asked to confirm that the character would not be making an appearance in The Force Awakens.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18.

A featurette showcasing the women of Star Wars was released today, and if you can't wait for the movie, then a game that turns your phone into a lightsaber might be able to tide you over until Friday.
