Wired posted a video with Andy Serkis about the history of motion capture technology that left out our buddy Jar Jar.  When Ahmed Best got wind of this he wasn’t happy and neither were a bunch of other fans:

A few people on Twitter grumbled this had to do with racism but I think it boils down to a simple fact and that is Wired has always hated the prequels and Jar Jar. But it’s great to see for once some pushback.

    It’s very heartening to see the pushback. The animators did an amazing job with Jar Jar. I’m always watching him in the background of the scenes he’s in to see what he’s doing. He’s got an entertaining range of expressions and he never fails to make me laugh.

    It’s great to see Ahmed honouring the animators.

      Thanks! I’ve been too busy to throw myself a party here.

        If one more anniversary expression of thanks is possible, I’d like to make it. Having managed to stick around for the full ten years myself, I’ve seen people come and go, but this has remained one of my most satisfying refuges for discussion; I certainly hope we can keep going.
