Jar Jar Binks quotes from The Phantom Menace
Love him or hate him, Jar Jar Bink’s place in the Star Wars realm will live on longer than you.
Intended as a comical relief for The Phantom Menace, Jar Jar became ridiculed and reviled as the worst thing about the movie but never forget Jar Jar was loved by the young kids who saw the movie as much as young kids loved Chewbacca when they first saw Star Wars.
He was intended to sell toys, like an Ewok we guess but he’s now loved by many in an ironic sense.
Legend has it George Lucas had a moment when he realised Jar Jar was perhaps not going to help his film succeed…
Ahmed Best played Jar Jar and continued to do voice-over work for the character’s appearances in The Clone Wars and video games. Best suffered a lot of backlash for the role but more recently has experienced a lot of support from the Star Wars community who grew up with TPM.
Any hey, if you’ve come here looking for the character’s lines, Lucas must have done something right!
