Do you love him or hate him. I don't hate him, but he's not one of my favourite characters. Does anyone know if he's stil alive?

I don't mind him and sometimes find him funny. As far as him being alive? I don't know but I'd say its a fair bet that because the Empire didn't take too kindly to alien species he didn't have the easiest of times after the Old Republic fell.

For me, now days I just don't care. I tolerate it. I think people that still passionatly hate him should find somthing else to hate. It's been almost ten years since the movie came out.

And it's not like they're shoving him in our faces. They realized fans dislike him so they really haven't done anything with him since Epside 1 except, you know, blame the fall of the Republic on him

I was surprised when I recently learned that there were fans who disliked Jar-Jar.

Really? I don't hate him, he just annoys me. In my opinion, they tried too hard to make a funny character for kids.

At first I didn't really like him because he was just too much of a cartoon character in the way he acted. It was like Roger Rabbit. But, after seeing the skit they did with him on Robot Chicken, I'd say it was all worth it. That was hilarious!

The robot Chicken was hilarious with Jar Jar; I think that may be my favorite part of it! I laughed when I first saw him in Episode I but I was young and misguided Laughing Now, he isn't a character I go out of my way to check out but I'd say I don't hate him nor like him.

He's not my favorite character, but I wouldn't take him out of the story.

This is the best Jar Jar pic I think I've ever found...butterflies for the win!

I don't hate Jar Jar, I disliked him in TPM and was happy for his small role in AoC and for his almost total absence from RotS.

I really like the way they handle Jar-Jar in the Clone Wars more than in the movies. Maybe he's just destined to be a cartoon.

He's actually been decent and dare I say likeable in the Clone Wars show. I was completely put off by his character in TPM (even when I was like 11) and disliked him up until now. As a cartoon he seems to be where he should be. Now I'll say this, the love scenes in AotC make Jar-Jar look like a work of art and brilliance. And yeah, the Robot Chicken thing was hilarious Very Happy

I'd have to say that initially I though he was stupid and I was one of the haters, but with the passing of time he's kind of grown on me. Still not one my favorite characters, but he's bearable and likable at times.

I never really hated Jar Jar, but he is definetly one of my least favorite characters in Star Wars. Like to the point where I could care less if he was never created.

But thats just my opinion.

I used to not mind Jar Jar, but...the more I watch the prequels, the more I hate him. *shrugs* Neutral
