When frightened swamp creatures stampede, Jar Jar's tasty breakfast is rudely interrupted.
Jar Jar wonders why all the animals are fleeing. Then he sees the huge Trade Federation transport speeding toward him.
"Oh, noooo!" cries Jar Jar.
Jar Jar grabs hold of the first thing he sees. Luckily, the first thing he sees dives into the muddy swamp, taking Jar Jar along with him!
"Ooh, I luv yous," Jar Jar wails to the Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn. "Yousa savin' my life."
WATCH OUT, Jar Jar!
As a battle droid swoops down, Qui-Gon quickly draws his humming lightsaber. In a flash, he destroys the deadly droid.
"Dis crazy!" Jar Jar cries.
"Your planet, Naboo, is being attacked by the Trade Federation's army," Qui-Gon explains.
Qui-Gon agrees to let Jar Jar stay with him. But the Jedi Master cannot always keep Jar Jar out of trouble...
