      You’re right. He firmly defended him at the premiere of “The Force Awakens” in December 2015:

      Interviewer: Do you have a favourite character from “The Force Awakens”?

      Frank Oz: I haven’t seen enough to see [say]. But I love Jar Jar Binks. I swear to God I do. George did Jar Jar Binks — when I saw that script, I thought he was a fantastic character and I don’t know what the heck happened. George was so wonderful with that thing so — I’m a Jar Jar Binks fan, just so you know that . . . I thought he was fantastic. He was hysterical. Reminded me of Abbott and Costello. I don’t know what the whole deal was, but I thought George was really smart with it. I thought he was wonderful.

    Very classy tweet from Mister Oz! If Yoda and Miss Piggy both love ya, then you’re probably doing something right.
