Any true Star Wars fan will tell you that the first Trilogy was okay, but things didn't really get cooking until Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and the introduction of the one and only Jar Jar Binks. When Jar Jar fumbled, stumbled and bumbled his way into our hearts In Phantom Menace, I was sure he would be pivotal in Episodes 2 and 3. Unfortunately, George Lucas chose another path, focusing on Anakin Skywalker, of all people, and shuffling Jar Jar to the sidelines.
I'll never understand Hollywood.
