Another shot at redeeming Jar Jar

He’s here to stay, and since my other theory got plastered by Attack of the Clones, we need to go deeper…

Introduce the idea of a parasitic mental force meme in the new movies. It’s a semi-sentient creature of the Force that is structured by the unconscious biases and assumptions of the people around it.

We discover that Jar Jar never actually physically existed but was instead a visual symptom of the corruption suffusing the soul of the Jedi Order.

It’s one of those things that’s presented in a way that convinces you during a rewatch the prequel’s that it was an obvious sign right in front of you that you _should have caught_.
