Jar Jar Binks Becomes an Evil Sith Lord in Scary Star Wars Fan Art

Jar Jar Binks is an important part of the Star Wars franchise. While the Gungan is not, perhaps, roundly beloved by the fanbase, he is important nonetheless.

Like her character Claudia Kishi narrating the opening scene of episode two in “The Baby-Sitters Club,” Momona Tamada could recite a laundry list of her own talents: dramatic and comedic acting, dancing and experimenting with style.
