    "Jar Jar is the key to all of this."

      I do completely understand why people love the character of Jar Jar now. I was 8 years old and "LOVED" the Ewoks in 1983, so I completely understand the Love for Jar Jar from the people that were young in '99.

      I was never a hater or got angry about Jar Jar. It was cringe worthy and I can't pretend that I liked Jar Jar at all, but I never hated Ahmed Best. He did a great job with what he was given and it's what the writer/director wanted from him.

        It was cool to see him being cheered for, and being interviewed. I wish we could’ve heard the voice or his favorite line

          To those who hated this man and relentlessly expressed it online in the past, I hope you feel ashamed of yourselves now.

            11:24 I think Andi needed a second to keep her composure.

              I honestly don't understand why so many people hate actors if their character's performance is bad. I mean, the fault is pretty much always in the director and script writer. They decide what the character will be like, how the actor should perform and what that character's dialogue is. The actor is just doing his/her job according to instructions.

                  Ahmed did a great job of making the character annoying that it felt real!! Praise ur acting but not really the character! I'ma not a jar jar hater or nothing else but I think the character that Lucas made him is just good

                          I love how efficient Jar Jar is in his clumsiness. He gets a lot done in the droids vs. Gungans battle.

                                I don't care what anyone says, despite the fact that...yes, more could have been done with the prequels, George Lucas made my childhood. Not only did I grow up with the original trilogy in the 90s on VHS and elsewhere before the changes were made, I later at 13 got to have fun with it all over again when the next Trilogy started. All of it was fun. Not like now where it's touch and go with some of the material (not all, but some). Back then, it was pure joy for all of it, even if there was a little lack of things we would have liked to see looking back as an adult now, it was full of adventure and the prequels are entertaining, they blow the new trilogy away in that respect, so much variety and still fun to watch today, especially Revenge of the Sith.

                                  As someone who was at the perfect age for Jar Jar its so heartwarming to see Ahmed getting such a big cheer.

                                    It's okay to not like Jar-Jar, but you HAVE to give respect to Ahmed. The man is a class act!

                                            His character was good for kids. He's a nice guy and did the acting job he was asked to do.

                                                          Super wholesome to see Ahmed getting the respect he deserves. He wasn't the to blame for Jar Jar as a character, since it was all George's idea to begin with.

                                                            I actually think the Jar Jar is a very well designed character. I think his flaws stem from untapped potential rather than not having potential. To me, if he had just had his gags in the final battle scene that would have been VERY funny; that's the comedy which is the most physical, which is the character's potential, but the rest of his jokes aren't.

I never really liked the character to be honest but that was down to Lucas as he created the character. Glad he made an appearance at celebration it was nice to see the fans support for him.

I think one can legitimately criticise the character, provided it's from the right place. However, what is not excusable whatsoever, is the hate and malice that was directed at Ahmed Best, George Lucas, and co. As the short green one once said, hate leads to suffering, which is the path to the dark side.
