Ahmed Best's Jedi Master is Actually Related to Another Star Wars Character

Ahmed Best may be the man behind Jar Jar Binks, but Lucasfilm has recently given him a new character in the form of Kelleran Beq, Jedi master. What's interesting is, Beq is actually related to another face in Star Wars who had appeared in Attack of the Clones.

According to Star Wars trivia bank, Star Wars Holocron, Jedi master Beq is actually related to Achk Med-Beq, a character that Best played in Attack of the Clones. Here's the post:

Though Med-Beq doesn't really do much in the films, he actually has a fleshed-out story in Legends, and he's also known to be an associate of Dannl Faytonni—the same character that Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) played in Attack of the Clones. They both appear in the same scene at the Outlander Club:

While the Star Wars fandom had been nothing but cruel to Best when the prequels came out, he has since been welcomed back with open arms, and now Lucasfilm has even given him a canon Jedi character. Though the general consensus was to hate Jar Jar back then, the character still managed to charm who he was intended to—the kids; and now that those kids have grown up, Best now has a fandom to fall back on.

Now we just have to find a way to stop the vicious cycle because the same hate groups are jabbing at the Sequel Trilogy.

For now, you can catch Best on Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge on Youtube.
