I was gonna guess Natalie Portman.

Well they are nice, but I prefer the whole package, wrapped in a ripped white outfit.  The white outfit was her metal slave bikini.

hardinparamedic: Jar Jar Binks is the real hero of the Prequels.


Star Wars is the story of R2D2. The Hero's Journey, the sins of the father, the dark hero's redemption, all that crap is just scenery.

TheManofPA: Mad_Radhu: Actual Farking: Wouldn't it be cool if jar jar turned out to be a jedi? He would bring some great levity to those self important jedi. He would use the force in silly ways.

Nah, he'll be revealed as a Sith Master who was hiding in plain sight all of the time, playing the fool sonit was easier to manipulate the key players right where he wanted them for Sidious to create the Empire. The one master and one apprentice rule will turn out to be a lie, spread by the Sith so further their long game.

You know, if Jar Jar had basically pulled a Verbal Kint to end the first one to end the first one, it would have completely changed the reviews of that movie.


My favorite Epileptic Trees theory about the original trilogy is that Jar Jar was Sidious' original master, who hatched the plan for galactic domination but knew that the Republic would never accept a Gungan master. After training Sidious to his satisfaction, he had himself mind-wiped of the plan, leaving behind only instinctive impressions that he should take certain actions if certain opportunities presented themselves. This allowed him to go back and plant himself on the Jedi side of things in utter anonymity, confident that no Jedi mind reading could reveal the plan. Sidious then was free to take on Maul, Dooku, and then Anakin as apprentices/pawns in turn, abandoning each when they'd failed him.

How else could Sidious move in such confidence of the actions of the protagonists? The moment he saw Jar Jar among them he knew his victory was assured - the Sith were playing both sides of the board. His master would have been so proud....

miss diminutive: fearmongert: Darth Maul was the only good thing in the original trilogy....

What? He didn't do anything. He had about two lines and waved a double-sided glowstick around.


He's this generation's Boba Fett.  Seriously.  He comes back to life and gets new legs in the EU. Another reason I like JJ doing this; hopefully, like Star Trek, he knows nothing about any expanded source materials and we can be spared bs like that.

When I used to play the SW Role Playing Game (SHUT UP, don't judge me!) I played a Jedi who looked like Bill the Cat from Bloom County in Jedi Robes. All he could say was Ach! Thbbbbbt. He communicated telepathically.

I don't know why but I love that.  That mental image made my day!

You shouldn't be embarrassed. I liked the prequels too, warts and all.
