So, looking at the IMDB record for III, I see Ahmed Best listed as Jar Jar. Jar Jar has a non-speaking role in the movie. Does this mean that he got his lines cut before the theatrical release? I wonder who made that call, and how bad it could have been. I kind of liked his role in II as being semi-responsible for the downfall of democracy, after the huge fan backlash (I thought the Gungan chief was far more annoying, despite having much less screen time). I wonder if that was changed to give the fans some sort of joy in watching their hated character water the seeds for the Empire.
