    While certainly not my favourite character, I don't think the actor deserved the universal scorn that he was subjected to. He did his best with the dialogue and direction he was given which is all you can ask from an actor.

    My favourite was Wedge Antilles, because he was a space fighter pilot and that the coolest thing when I was between the ages of 5 and 11.

    Better to keep your mouth shut and others think you a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.

    I still don't understand why nobody in the production team thought that just maybe the slightly racist, idiotic, kiddie-friendly character might not go down well with people.
    Did nobody there think it was a bad idea???? Suspicious

    How was Jar-Jar racist?

    I saw Episode 1 as a child, I didn't really enjoy the film, Star Wars not really my thing, but I liked Jar-Jar, he was amusing, he was comic relief.

    Because he's made to be a bumbling fool but has a fairly heavy Caribbean accent....a lot of people think that's a bit too close to the line.

    Personally I just think he's a crap, annoying character, regardless of any hidden suggestions of racism.

    Never thoughts about it, or made the connection to be honest.
