Darth Binks


video

Way back when, just after the release of The Phantom Menace, I made a stop-motion animated film called Darth Binks that explored what would happen if Jar Jar responded to all the resentment of him by turning to the dark side of The Force and becoming a Sith Lord. It is made with Lego minifigures and with audio clips found online. Enjoy.

You get bonus points if you can spot IG-88 in the background.

Director's commentary: It was originally going to be much more grandiose with Obi-Wan Kenobi in a lightsaber duel with a spaceship piloted by Binks, but do you have any idea how long stop-motion animation takes?
