Galactic News: Ahmed Best Says The Phantom Menace Achieves What The Sequels Didn't

By now we know how the Star Wars fandom reacted to both the George Lucas Star Wars prequels and the later sequels from JJ Abrams and Rian Johnson. There has been all out war over both trilogies of films. Now, the actor behind Jar Jar Binks has commented on his thoughts on where the movies stand. He believes that The Phantom Menace is the better representation of the Lucas vision and outdoes the later sequel trilogy because they weren't geared enough towards children. Obviously, all opinions  are welcome here. After Best's awful problems after playing Binks, it's cool to see that he has a new found love for the movie. 

Best obviously knows how rabid Star Wars fans can be and was the center of their commentary for years. Many hate the character and despise his role in the prequel trilogy. However, it seems that Jar Jar gets a little more respect as time goes on with some fans joking that Binks was a member of the Sith the entire time. Here's what Best had to say during an interview with Jamie Stangroom about his thoughts on The Phantom Menace versus the sequel trilogy:

"It’s very much for the millennials and gen-Xers like myself…so kids are kind of left out of these, and the kids have to go to the animated series in order to get their dose of Star Wars, or they do like Phantom Menace. Phantom Menace is very much a kids movie. The new iterations of Star Wars are not really skewed towards kids, which is not something that George ever really wanted to do. George was always about the kids, and he used to say that if you get the kids, you have fans for the next 20 years; he was very much about kids. This idea that the movies are for adults is a very new thing, to be honest."
