Jar Jar Binks voice actor Ahmed Best has made a return to the Star Wars franchise.
Best appears, this time in the flesh, in a trailer for the upcoming Star Wars game show Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge, which will screen on the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel.
The upcoming 10-episode series tests young Star Wars fans on their abilities to become Jedis through a series of challenges – get a taste of the new show below.
Best appeared as the voice of Jar Jar Binks in all three of George Lucas’ Star Wars prequels from 1999-2005.
Back in 2018, the actor revealed that the backlash to his appearance in the films led him to receive death threats and contemplate taking his own life.
“I don’t talk a lot about my experience as #jarjarbinks because a lot of it is very painful,” he wrote in an Instagram post. “I faced a media backlash that still affects my career today.
“This was the place I almost ended my life,” he wrote, under a photo of him and his son next to the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City. “It’s still hard to talk about. I survived and now this little guy is my gift for survival.”
He then thanked fans for their “love and kindness” after he shared his struggles.
The new website features behind-the-scenes footage, new artwork around the classic 1980 film and more.
The hashtag #MakeSolo2Happen has also gone viral this week, with fans of the franchise campaigning for a sequel to 2018’s Han Solo spin-off Solo: A Star Wars Story to be released.
