Much to Learn You Still Have is a rundown of trivia and fun facts, both in-universe and behind-the-scenes, about the aliens of the Star Wars galaxy. Whether you’ve never set foot in a cantina or you’re a well-traveled Jedi Master, you’ll find the intel you need.

The long-eared amphibians from Naboo have been represented by brave warriors like Captain Tarpals, or clumsy outcasts like Jar Jar Binks, but the Gungans have a rich history that might surprise you. Care to dive into a sea of fun facts about the water-dwelling, duck-billed creatures?

1. There are two main Gungan races.

If you’ve seen The Phantom Menace, you’ve probably noticed that the Gungans of Naboo come in varying shapes and sizes. There are some that look more lanky like Jar Jar and Tarpals, and others that have a quite different stocky body type like the leader of the Gungans, Boss Nass. This is because the Gungans can be split into two major races, the Otolla and the Ankura. The familiar Gungans we saw fighting in the Battle of Naboo are the Otolla, and you can tell their race from their long, skinnier body frames and long haillu, or floppy ear-like body parts. The Gungans like Boss Nass are called the Ankura, and they’ve got much shorter bills, hooded eyes, and a more rotund body frame. We haven’t seen many in the Star Wars universe because the truth is, there aren’t many left. The Ankura are a much older species of Gungan than the more common Otolla.

2. They have a sacred space. 

Another more reptilian group of humanoids known as the Elders also inhabited Naboo once upon a time. This species actually were in conflict with the Gungans, but little is known about what the two sides were fighting about. The Elders eventually died off, but their massive statues still stand in a location called the Gungan Sacred Place and we all got a peek of it in The Phantom Menace. Rewatch the scene where Jar Jar Binks brings an undercover Queen Amidala to visit with Boss Nass to negotiate an alliance. The heads poking up from the swampy marshland could be of the species themselves or of the gods they worshiped. The Gungans often choose to gather at the Sacred Place during times of fear and anxiety.





3. Jar Jar resembled a few different animals.

When the concept for Jar Jar Binks was being created, artist Terryl Whitlach knew he had to be a comedic character with a lot of personality. His legs and body were gangly from the start, but what his face and neck would look like was still up for debate. The Gungan took a year and a half to get just right, and first iterations had him closely resembling a duck. When he was made to look more friendly, his look took on a droopy-looking dog. Finally after a debate about his coloring (few real underwater creatures are actually green) and more changes to his nose and mouth, the designers settled on the orange-hued familiar face we know and love.

Fun fact #1: Jar Jar’s goofy antics were inspired by the comedy legends Charlie Chaplin, Danny Kaye, and even Walt Disney’s Goofy.


4. The actors that played Jar Jar and Boss Nass didn’t exactly try out for the parts.

When you think Gungan you probably think Binks, and this list wouldn’t be complete without focusing on Jar Jar. The bumbling Gungan was brought to life by actor Ahmed Best and his casting call was an interesting one. Casting director Robin Gurland discovered Best while he was performing in the show Stomp, a theatrical percussion show being held at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Theater. The part of Jar Jar was taking a long time to fill, so when Gurland caught eye of Best performing animatedly with a kitchen sink around his neck, she knew he was just right. The part took a specific combination of mobility and voice acting that Best proved to have once he was invited to meet with Gurland and unknowingly recorded. Another famous Gungan, Boss Nass, also had a unique casting. Brian Blessed got Gurland’s approval as an actor that needed to be in the film before the character of Nass was even established. Once they were on the look-out for someone with a “bigger than life” persona, Blessed had the part.

4. Jar Jar had a lost love.


Speaking of Jar Jar, who can forget the passionate love affair of Jar Jar and Queen Julia? That’s right. If you haven’t watched The Clone Wars episodes “The Disappeared Part I and II,” you may have missed this unexpected addition to Binks’ social life. When Julia’s people the Bardottans called upon the Republic for help after Force-sensitive members of their government started disappearing, she specifically asked for Jar Jar. We quickly learn that these two definitely have a history when the queen kisses Jar Jar and asks him to privately meditate with her. Hey, Gungans need love, too. 

(Not so) Fun fact #2: After the Battle of Endor, not even Queen Julia could save Jar Jar from his ultimate fate. The Gungan bosses banished the poor fool because of supposed collusion with the Empire. His new job? Juggling fountain performer in the city of Theed.

5. They join forces with other water worlds. 

Though Gungans try to be a peace-loving species that respect nature and the balance of the ecosystem, this doesn’t keep them out of their fair share of conflict. During The Clone Wars, the Gungans teamed up with the Mon Calamari, another water-loving species, when they fought their bitter enemies the Quarren. The Quarren teamed up with the Separatists, but they were ultimately no match for the Mon Cal and the Gungan Grand Army.

Fun Fact #3: Though the Gungans have their own language, most speak a pidgin dialect combing their native tongue with Galactic Basic. This makes communicating with other species much easier.

7. Their city gets their power from plants.

The gigantic bubble-like structures that make up the Gungan capital city of Otoh Gunga are aesthetically awesome, but did you know they’re powered naturally? The globes are known as hydrostatic bubbles and have a special membrane that keeps water out and allows entry through specific portal zones. Naboo is fortunate enough to grow locap plants in the planet’s porous bedrock that actually collect plasma in the buds located at the tip of the plant’s stalk. These plants live for several centuries, so that power supply isn’t going anywhere.

8. They have some interesting delicacies.

If there’s one thing Jar Jar has taught us, it’s that Gungans love their food. From fresh gorgs at the Mos Espa market to shellfish they crack with their powerful teeth, Gungans put those one meter-long tongues to good use. A particular delicacy of the natives of Naboo comes in the form of a bright blue slug-beetle. Though it might not sound appetizing, Gungans love to chew on the slimy bugs that hang out under the perlote tree in Naboo’s eastern swamplands. Another tasty treat entices visitors from all around the galaxy. According to the Twi’lek pilot Yendor in Claudia Gray’s Lost Stars, Otoh Gunga is home to a delicious dessert that takes four humanoids to consume. The best part? It supposedly sends you into a sugar-induced coma after eating, so it might be wise to book a bubble for the night if you’re traveling from afar.

Fun fact #4: After defeating the Trade Federation, Otoh Gunga became a popular destination for vacationers, especially honeymooners.

New Solo: A Star Wars Story Photos and Details Revealed

Entertainment Weekly pulled back the curtain on Solo: A Star Wars Story this week, with several great articles on the making of the film, plot and character details, and more. Here are some of the highlights, along with new photos revealed.

Solo is a “a heist, gunslinger type movie,” according to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. The speeding, spinning train glimpsed in the movie’s TV spot is called the Conveyex, and Han has to steal something that’s on board.

The droid seen saluting Lando in the teaser is named L3-37 (played by Phoebe Waller-Bridge through motion capture). L3-37 is Lando’s sidekick — she has some personality and she’s somewhat self-made. “She’s a self-modified droid,” co-writer Jon Kasdan told EW‘s Anthony Breznican. “The idea is that she’s sort of a mutt, if you will, of various parts of different kinds of droids who has improved upon herself.”

Alden Ehrenreich’s Han Solo will link up with a whole slew of shady folks, including Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson), Val (Thandie Newton), and gangster Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany). How good or bad are they? We’ll find out.


“He likes to know his way in and out of any situation that he’s in,” Donald Glover told EW of his scoundrel. “Lando likes rules because he’s somebody who is in a position to benefit from rules.”

Check out additional new photos below, and for more on Solo: A Star Wars Story, pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly featuring Anthony Breznican’s cover story, available today.

5 Ways Bomber Command Connects to the Larger Star Wars Universe

For anyone excited to learn more about Paige Tico, her sister Rose, or other Resistance fighters, look no further than Jason Fry’s Bomber Command. Bomber Command is a journal-style book filled with illustrations, schematics, and fold-out pages written from the perspective of Paige, a ball-turret gunner for the Resistance. And for Star Wars fans looking for links to the greater Star Wars universe, Bomber Command is filled with fascinating and fun connections. Here are just a few ways Bomber Command ties into the larger Star Wars universe.

1. It provides a backstory for Paige, Rose, and Cobalt Squadron.

Bomber schematics for Paige’s ship, Cobalt Hammer, and details of the magno-charges in the bomb bay we see Paige climb through during the opening sequence of The Last Jedi start off the book. Bomber Command also includes information about her fellow crew, who play a prominent role in the companion novel Cobalt Squadron, and an explanation for why Paige and Rose were not on the same ship in The Last Jedi.

While detailing her family history, Paige reveals how she and Rose received their matching pendant necklaces and her plan to share stories of Finn’s heroics with Rose. Paige journal entry “we all need hope to get through this fight” serves as a nice set up for Rose and Finn’s introduction to each other in The Last Jedi.

2. It adds details to the Force Awakens timeline.

Since the timeline for Bomber Command is shortly before The Last Jedi, many of the events Paige refers to in her journal took place during the events of The Force Awakens. Many of the entries flesh out what Leia and the Resistance were doing during the time Rey and Finn met on Jakku and made their way to the Resistance Base on D’Qar.

A highlight for any Leia fan is the section of Bomber Command that includes the full address Leia gave to the New Republic Senate (before the destruction of Hosnian Prime) which warns the Senate of the increasing danger of the First Order. It includes the chilling line, “What if the next irrefutable evidence isn’t a message from a friend, but an attack from an enemy?”

Among Bomber Command’s several fold out pages is a First Order recruitment poster encouraging skilled workers to join and help tame the galactic frontier. The unskilled are encouraged to enroll their children in “Frontier Corps” where children who are approved “will be guaranteed food, shelter, education, and the opportunity to make the galaxy a better place.”


While the Frontier Corps program has not been referenced before, the subject of First Order and Imperial recruitment has popped up in several other Star Wars productions. In Star Wars Rebels, Lothal is home to an Imperial Academy training cadets to become stormtroopers, and Finn references being taken from his family at a young age to join the First Order in The Force Awakens. The Battlefront II storyline also references a secret operation, Project Resurrection, which focused on forcibly turning children into First Order troopers.

3. It features bombers through time.

Bomber Command has a lot of information about ships seen in The Last Jedi, but there’s also a bit of history in Paige’s journal about bombers such as the Y-wing, TIE bomber, and the Hyena Bomber. All of these ships were seen in the original trilogy movies, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and even the video game Battlefront II.

4. It includes creatures from across the galaxy.

Bomber Command has a variety of fantastic illustrations, from ship schematics to portraits of Paige’s fellow crew members, to detailed instructions for using a Breath Mask (notably for oxygen breathers). Included among all of these drawings are sketches of creatures Paige hopes to see in person one day.

Fathiers, a clear favorite of Rose in The Last Jedi, start off this section that also includes creatures such as Jabba’s favorite snack, the gorg, from Return of the Jedi, and The Empire Strikes Back’s pesky power-cable-loving mynocks. Other sketches include cat-like tookas, who made appearances in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, and Rogue One (in doll form), a fierce narglatch (seen in several episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars), a purrgil (see the Star Wars Rebels episode “The Call” for a look at these space-whale creatures), and a happabore (who memorably shared a Jakku water trough with Finn in The Force Awakens).

5. It maps it all out.

As the Star Wars universe expands, so does the need for maps to track the locations of different planets and systems. The First Order Space Galactic Map in Bomber Command includes planets that played a large part in multiple Star Wars films including Naboo, Endor, Jakku, and Yavin, as well as Paige’s current home on D’Qar with the Resistance.

Bomber Command is available now.
