International Talk Like Jar Jar Binks Day

In Season 3 of the Mandalorian, we found out that Grogu, (also known as A Younger Member of Old Baby Yoda's Species) was rescued during order 66 by Jedi Master Kelleran Beq. Beq, of course, was portrayed by Jar Jar Binks' actor Ahmed Best. Now we don't know where Kelleran Beq takes Grogu after they escape from Coruscant, but easy money says that Grogu is put into the care of Jar Jar Binks and subsequently raised by him.

So for this year's Jar Jar related art contest, we're asking you to draw or paint: Jar Jar and Grogu having a fun day out. Maybe they're taking a trip to Tatooine to visit Jar Jar's best friend Obi-Wan. Maybe Grogu and Jar Jar are visiting Icecreamio, the Ice Cream Planet and getting into mischief. Maybe Grogu and Darth Jar Jar are having a practice lightsaber duel. The possibilities are endless!
