Our aquatic story arc continues.  Last week, our heroes and their Mon Calamari friend Prince Lee-Char were forced to retreat to deep sea caves.  After a failed attempt to get back to their ship above the surface, they contact the Jedi Council for help.  The Gungans seem ideally suited to help.  I'm not sure our friends were ever quite so happy to see Jar Jar!

Prince Lee-Char is voiced by Adam McArthur, a graduate of Pepperdine University.  Apart from his acting career, McArthur is an accomplished martial artist, specializing in kung fu.  He has been featured in two PBS documentaries about the discipline: Kung Fu: Journey to the East and Shaolin Kung Fu Monks.  His best known voice role is Marco Diaz in Star vs. the Forces of Evil.

  1. You know, I'm not really even quite sure what the purpose of this episode was. Except that they wanted three parts? They just wanted an reason to show the Gungans in undersea combat? I don't know.

  2. For once everyone is happy to see Jar Jar ? Well I guess there is always a first time.

    cheers, parsnip and thehamish

  3. It's about time the Gunguns got so credit. Jar Jar ruined it for everyone.
