BEHIND THE SCENES: JAR JAR'S SPOTLIGHT!
Visor down, Ahmed Best undergoes a camera test for an upcoming scene with Jar Jar Binks, set within the waiting area of Senator Palpatine's office on Coruscant, and filmed at the UK's Leavesden Studios in 1997 for EPISODE I.
In a deleted scene in the office reception area, Jar Jar and Anakin Skywalker sneak off to eavesdrop on the important conversation between Queen Amidala and Palpatine. Though the scene never made the final cut, you can briefly see it occur in background long shot through the glass doors- Jar Jar and Anakin hand-in-hand rushing off.
