Over at Reddit, there is a great post detailing a theory that Jar Jar Binks (the bumbling, hapless oaf that people in general despise) is more than meets the eye. In fact, he could have possibly been a trained force user, and a master Sith Lord in disguise.
It’s an excellent theory, laid out with a great many examples and thought behind it, and it would have drastically changed the way the prequels played out.
As it was though, he was nothing more than “comic” relief. A missed opportunity?
Oh, and by the way, The Force Awakens is amazing. Go see it. Onwards!
