WITH THE RELEASE of the excellent new Star Wars films, people have been remembering just how… uneven those prequels were.

Jar Jar Binks? Worst character ever! Anakin Skywalker? Couldn’t act!

One person who will not hear one word against the films is Natalie Portman AKA Padmé Amidala herself.

The actress hosted Saturday Night Live last night – she previously appeared on the show in 2006, when she surprised everyone with the absolutely gas Natalie Portman Rap.

Really, it’s still amazing:

For last night’s show, they decided to do a sequel to this sketch, and well… it’s fair to say that Natalie is still a huge badass.

The best bit comes around 1:33 in, when she launches into a Cardi B-style interlude about the Star Wars prequels, dressed as Amidala:

Say something ’bout the motherf**king prequels b*tch/ Say something f**king nice about Jar Jar Binks

Look, someone needs to stand up for them. Glad you stepped up to the plate, Natalie.
