View Full Version : NO Jar Jar in AOTC trailer?

I thought this bugger was going to be a major player in the upcoming sequels? Perhaps ommitting him from the trailer is just a marketing tool.

I for one could care less if he was not in the movie. . .and would be even more excited to see the movie knowing he was no longer a part of this story.

Oh, he's there all right. Large as CGI life! He lollops along behind padme. Look again if you dare...

Meesa taught weesa be lucky anda not hava Jar Jar Binks.

How lame. He appears in one frame and you can't even tell he's there. Oh, wait a minute. Yes I can. Sir Steve kindly circled him for me.

Now I'm convinced it's a marketing ploy. . .

Thanks SS for the URL!

Hey dathere Captain Tarpals messa back!

How is it that this thread hasn't been moved yet?

Yes, Jar Jar is in the trailer. His role in the movie is seriously cut back compared to Ep1. As GL described it, he just has nothing to do in Ep2.

His a senator if that counts for something? If I was in charge I wouldn't allow him to become a senator! Although Palapatine could be behind this.....

Maybe that is his master plan, annoy the Jedi to death. Damn that Palpatine. :frus:

I've relocated this thread to the Movies section as it has more to do (specifically) with Episode II the film than Episode II the toy line (or portion of the unified Star Wars line).

Now some comments specific to the thread:

That Jar Jar does not apper in the trailer (at least not much) is certainly telling. It is probably a product of his less active role in this chapter and shrewd marketing. This is just a teaser, and condensing what will be about two hours of footage into a one minute spot is no small task, from the standpoint of selecting images that will intice audiences and still seem cohesive in 60 seconds. If Jar Jar has little screen time, there is less of him to select for the one minute available. For those who hate Jar Jar, so much the better I'm sure.
Also, judging from the screenshot of Mace Windu shown in this thread, the rumors that the new digital film process was a sham and that all footage was poor in color and out of focus appear to have been, as most suspected, completely false.

I am going to move this to the E2 spoilers forum as the conversation has included information beyond what is in the Pre-Teaser.

It could be worse. Jar Jar could be a Jedi!

JJ has no dialogue in the DVD trailer though, so that should tell y'all something.
