Jar Jar Binks Quotes from the Prequel Trilogy

Love him or hate him, Jar Jar Binks' place in the Star Wars realm will live on longer than you, good reader.

Intended as comic 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 created to sell toys like the Ewoks were, but he's now loved by many in an ironic sense.

Legend has it George Lucas had a moment when he realized Jar Jar was perhaps not going to help his movie succeed

Actor 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 The Phantom Menace.

Anyway, if you've come here looking for the character's lines, he must have done something right!

Jar Jar Binks' Single Revenge of the Sith Quote

  • “Excuse Me.”
As you can see, Jar Jar said less and less until he was reduced to one line in the final prequel movie.  That line can almost be seen as George Lucas making an apology for the character's existence, but that may be reading too much into it.

Hey if you like reading, learn how the Dune novel inspired the script of the original Star Wars movie.

Jar Jar Binks has become something of a Star Wars meme in recent years. There's a fun fan theory that he is actually a secret Sith Lord! We think there's much of a chance of that as Yoda dealing in absolutes.
