Jar Jar Binks is a kind-hearted but clumsy Gungan who becomes an ally to the Jedi after Qui-Gon Jinn saves him from being trampled by a Federation transport where he forms a close friendship with the young Anakin Skywalker and Queen Padme Amidala, helping to fight the battle droids with his fellow Gungan in the battle against the Trade Federation. Jar Jar becomes a helper to Padme and takes her place as a Senator when she is forced to go into hiding due to multiple assassination attempts on her life.

The character of Jar Jar received a negative reception by fans for being annoying and critics for being a racial stereotype of Jamaicans. Because of this, the role of the character became downgraded in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.
