Star Wars: The Mandalorian Featured Another Sneaky Jar Jar Binks Easter Egg

Disney+ has already released the first four episodes of The Mandalorian Season 3, and it has already pushed Star Wars forward in a major way. The Mandalorian's latest episode gave us our first in-canon look at Kelleran Beq (Ahmed Best), who saves Grogu from the Sith during the events of Order 66. Best has been involved with Star Wars for quite some time now, and for those of you that don't know, he is the man behind Jar Jar Binks. Best appearing in the series as Kelleran Beq may be a major nod to Jar Jar Binks, but it turns out that there might've been another easter egg pointing towards the beloved Star Wars character. 

What is The Mandalorian's Second Jar Jar Binks Easter Egg?

When Kelleran Beq saves Grogu from an untimely death, he leads him to a friend's ship, and that ship may look familiar to fans of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. As Forbes points out, the ship that we see Grogu and Kelleran Beq escaping in is being protected by Naboo guards. The ship in question just so happens to be Jar Jar's ship.

What Was The Previous Star Wars Series to Hit Disney+?

Andor is one  the most recent Star Wars series to hit Disney+. Diego Luna returns as one of the most interesting characters in the Star Wars universe, Cassian Andor. Back in May,'s Brandon Davis got the chance to speak with Andor'sleading man during Star Wars Celebration, and he reveals that after watching Andor you won't believe that Rouge One: A Star Wars Story was possible.

"The only thing I can say is you're going to see where he was five years before Rogue One, and you're not going to believe Rogue One was possible," Luna told us. "That's the idea, to see a transformation and an awakening. I can't tell you how that will be represented, you'll have to wait until the 31st of August. But it is about that, and it's about how much we're all capable of changing and transforming, and that's the beauty of storytelling. Not many times you start knowing the end, here you know what happens. It's not about, like, 'Oh this happened!' No, no, it's how it happened that matters. It's about the little details and what's in between lines and every layer of the character. Even though we are on a very epic kind of show and a huge spy adventure show, we're going to have time for intimacy. You're going to go deep into the character and the people around him. It's going to be interesting, I think, and it's going to be dark and fun and different from what you see out there now."

The Mandalorian Season 3 is streaming exclusively on Disney+ now.
