    I actually like Gun Gans in general. I mean, they are some skilled warriors. From what we’ve seen of them, we know that they can fight. I think most people immediately think Jar Jar when it comes to Gun Gans. Jar jar is especially clumsy, but most of the Gun Gans are great warriors. Also, they are quite advanced people when you think of it. Their cities that glow underwater are amazing. When I think of Gun Gans, I usually think of Tarpals

    I absolutely love Gungans. They are interesting creatures. I feel like Disney is making a some-what half-hearted effort to reintroduce them back into canon (with not one but two important gungans in the High Republic series.) Plus, they were mentioned in passing in Mandalorian. It’s a shame because they are criticized because of one gungan in particular (Jar Jar). But I feel people’s attitudes would change if they 1) put a serious gungan character in a tv show/movie 2) make it a costume instead of CGI 3) don’t have it talk in a “meesa” accent (like the ones in the High Republic novels.)

    Otoh Gunga and the swimming trip that Qui Gon, Obi Wan, and Jar Jar take to it .. along with the music in that scene .. is one of the coolest scenes in the Prequels.

    I agree.

    Otoh Gunga looks so great. Also all the voyage in the bongo trough the core iys so nice. There's always a bigger fish.

    I don't think that the race has anything wrong with it in particular. The technology that the Gungans possess is interesting and the society is as well. As a lot of people have said, Jar Jar is the problem. In TPM, we were introduced to the Gungans through Jar Jar, a very moronic and clumsy individual.

    I have a sweet spot for Jar Jar. The unfortunate thing is his character is unnecessary. While he is supposed to provide comic relief, it doesn't work very well. The humor just didn't mesh with the tone of the story. He doesn't really add anything to the story. You could argue that it is because of him that they discover the Gungan city and make the alliance with them, but Queen Amidala or someone of her people could have make that happen on their own. It would have worked better if his comedy was a bit more sophisticated and actually added something to the story, besides being a nuisance tag along. Like if he became really good friends with Anakin and helps him make the decision to leave or something. Also, the way the Gungans talk is annoying and hard to understand.
