Thanks for the love, but I will not be in this series. As much as I would’ve loved to be a part of it. But I’m ecstatic to see folks who I love dearly back together doing great things. https://t.co/5bzLq9yslh

“Thank you for the love, but I will not be in this series. As much as I would have loved to be a part of it. But I am elated to see people I really love to be together again doing great things.
Having his first appearance in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Jar Jar Binks quickly became one of the most hated characters in the Star Wars films by many of the fans of the saga, considering him a most burdensome character. that hardly brings anything good to the franchise, so for many it will be a relief not to see his face in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.
If everything goes fine, The Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi series will debut in the Disney Plus catalog sometime next year 2022.
