Background of Gungans
  Gungans are an aquatic species that inhabit the planet Naboo, first introduced in The Phantom Menace (1999). The most prominently featured Gungan in the Star Wars films is Jar Jar Binks. The name gungan is probably derived from the famous 1892 Rudyard Kipling poem called Gunga Din. The poem tells the experiences of a British soldier in India.

Jar Jar Binks was the first Gungan designed by the Art Department. After Binks was finalized, his design was modified and adapted to create the other Gungans in the films.
