    I came across this mind-blowing theory from Reddit - and it's one that makes a frightening amount of sense.
    On the extremely unlikey chance that this would happen, it would be hilarious - and surprisingly thematically-appropriate - if it did.

    I find that teory interesting and perfect way to retcon Jar Jar.

    Maybe not Snoke, but some dark force user in disguises ( Knight of Ren ).

    Points For:
    1. It would (somewhat) redeem a hated character if this was true.
    2. Jar Jar wouldn't have to be a Sith, meaning if Vader and/or Sidious didn't create the Knights of Ren and Snoke is part of them, they now can say that the KoR were active during the PT (although idk about the OT).
    3. Jar Jar simply fades away at the end of ROTS and the PT in general. We know he's alive, so fitting him back in the Canon is easier to explain and makes more sense than trying to bring back a character who's already assumed and/or confirmed to be dead (or two if you're a fan of the Vader Resurrection theory (...which I admittedly am...)).
    4. The title The Phantom Menace would now have a completely different meaning making the whole movie seem harsher in hindsight, actually redeeming parts of the PT.
    5. I'm pretty sure the OP of the theory mentions how GL actually did have plans for Jar Jar to be revealed as evil or turn evil later on, but dropped it when fan reaction came out (a case of "creator backlash" and "this is why we can't have nice things?"). I've heard this somewhere else before, so I'm pretty sure it's accurate...or somewhat so (someone source-check me please!)
    6. As @Pomojema said, it makes thematic sense.

    Points Against:
    1. J.J. Abrams absolutely LOATHES Jar Jar Binks, as does a good amount (and by that I mean most) of the fandom. While that joke about his bones in the Jakku desert (which would lend the question of how they got there) could be just covering up the big reveal, I doubt it.
    2. Why risk fan backlash? It would be wiser to let one of the most hated characters in the fandom fade into the ages rather than resurrect him for a plot twist.
    3. If Jar Jar was an evil Force User and not from the Knights of Ren, why didn't Sidious take him out as soon as he had the chance and/or completed his goals? His character's usefulness ran its course then.
    4. Although I admittedly skipped most of the episodes with Jar Jar in them, wouldn't his The Clone Wars version already establish his character?


    Overall, this theory is one of the best Star Wars theories I've read and I love it, but I'm not sure if it's the best idea to implement. Fun fact though, the OP of that theory has more to add on to it if you read his comments (for example how Jar Jar is playing around with the engine to get everyone to Tatooine)

    Jar Jar is in truth Darth Bane. His goal is to be the bane of everyone's existence.

    Would this theory work better if we never found out in the movies who Snoke was other than a person who knew Anakin from his Jedi days and then the truth that he's Jar Jar is explored in a book or comic or something?

    or maybe Jar Jar is Plagueis and the secret to immortality is to be so reviled that you're never forgotten
