Rejoice "Star Wars" fans, the most hated character in the galaxy, aka Jar Jar Binks, might be getting the ax.

While discussing "The Force Awakens" with Vanity Fair, director J.J. Abrams revealed that he might plant an easter egg in the film hinting at Jar Jar's demise. “I have a thought about putting Jar Jar Binks’s bones in the desert there," Abrams said when referencing a frame from the upcoming film. "I’m serious! Only three people will notice, but they’ll love it.”

We're sure a lot more than three people will notice it now that fans will be scouting for the bones of the Gungan character during the film. But don't expect a ton of "Star Wars" easter eggs in "Episode VII." Abrams also told Vanity Fair that he ended up removing some references to the previous films since they seemed superfluous. "It should feel like things are being referenced for a reason," Abrams said.

May the force be with you as you look for dead Jar Jar.
