    I saw one of the "making of" featurettes on TV some years back -- there is an actor in a motion-tracking rig, which they used to animate the Jar Jar Binks character. So the movements, gestures, walk, et cetera, are actually being generated by a human actor, but then all the parameters of those motions are being fed into animation software. Kind of a more inexpensive way to animate something as complex as a full-body humanoid figure.
