I would, hopefully Anakin will slice his fat lips and tongue off!

What was Lucas thinking about when he created him?

Yup, he wont die so might as well press Edit and delete the thread.

what was he thinking? perhaps he wanted the creature sidekick that chewie was. Jar Jar never fit those shoes so expecting the fur ball to be back in the third.

JarJar is deep and complex character. I'm sorry that so few people understand him and how profound his existence is.

No that would be terrible. Killing Jar Jar means he has to be in the film. I say...don't even put him in the movie!

Again, I have to say, he's already in it so this discussion is utterly pointless and nothing more than another round of luca$ bashing. If I'm not mistaken, there's around 3-4 active Star Wars threads between here and the main board. Did we really need another one?

i keep hoping that when all six movies are out and it's time to make the "improvements" (se's)on the I, II, III that he will have the gungans kidnap anikan's mom instead of the sand people. then he could kill them, he could kill all of them.

If you go back and watch the original trilogy, you'll find similar characters in Chewbacca and R2-D2 (i.e. comic relief) - the only noticeable difference? You don't know what the Hell they're saying. If Lucas had written in a comical character that didn't speak ANY sort of English, it would have been MUCH better.

No, I wouldn't cheer if Jar Jar Binks died in Episode 3 - I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that George Lucas has already said he won't die, so I don't even think this is up for debate anymore.

I think this will be a pretty cool movie if done right... we shall see.

I would dance an amazing end-zone dance the likes of which has never been seen in college or NFL ball. But since I'm not planning on seeing the movie, I'll have to take someone's word for it...

That's what fanboys were saying about Episode II in the weeks leading up to it's release:

"It's darker!" "There's less of Jar Jar!" "It'll make up for Episode 1, you'll see!"

Of course, Episode 2 turned out not much better than the first one. In fact, in numerous ways, it's a worse film.

If the whole series dies and Lucas is still directing, I won't shed a tear.

Episode I and II never got made. Jar Jar Binks was never in a movie. Episode III won't get made.

Now everyone repeat until you believe, then go watch IV, V and VI and enjoy.

I really wish Lucas had catered for the original Star Wars fans rather than the current generation of youth. I find it hard to believe that the people who grew up with the first movies can think Lucas did a good job with the new trilogy.

Jar Jar will die eventually - it's not like he's immortal or anything, right?

No. Because that would mean he is in the movie. He just needs to be gone.

I could give a rat's ass about Jar Jar. As long as Jake Lloyd is out of the picture and Natalie Portman doesn't talk like a robot I'm fine.
