Jar Jar Binks Quotes from the Star Wars Prequel films

28 February 2023
Jar Jar Binks is one of the most polarizing characters in the Star Wars universe. 

Depending on who you ask, he's either a lovable and charming goofball or an annoying and grating presence that nearly ruins the entire prequel trilogy.

Introduced in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Jar Jar quickly became a controversial figure thanks to his distinctive, idiosyncratic mannerisms and exaggerated vocalizations. Some viewers found him endearing, citing his comedic timing and childlike innocence as reasons to love him. 

Played with sincerity by Amhed Best, many found his antics obnoxious and distracting and blamed him for taking away from the more serious elements of the story.

Despite the intense debate surrounding Jar Jar, there's no denying that he's a memorable character. 

Whether you love him or hate him, he's hard to forget, and his influence on the Star Wars franchise is undeniable. Whether you find him to be a breath of fresh air or an unwelcome distraction, Jar Jar Binks will always be one of the most divisive and talked-about characters in the Star Wars universe.

Some say he's a Sith Lord after all...
