I bet Jar Jar dies in "Episode II". I just have a feeling. If he does, it's going to be funny as hell to hear the cheering and clapping in the theater.
That, and little 7-year-old kids crying.
Ouch, where did that come from? Sorry, that's not like me at all to say that! Oops...
In any case, someone fairly major to the plot (or a leading, popular character) in each of the four existing movies has died (or in the case of "Empire", got frozen in carbonite), so I can't think of a better way to continue that tradition than with Shufflin' Camel-face himself.
But they'll probably whack out Sam Jackson, thereby clearing the way for the saga to be "brother free" until the smooth intro of a caped Billy Dee in "Empire", where he so righteously puts the moves on Leia, giving Han "Mandigo"-inspired visions and twitches and thoughts of "shoulda killed him when I had the chance..."
