Penn State Personalities As Star Wars Characters

With former Penn State basketball player-turned-actor Joonas Suotamo cast as young Chewbacca in the new Han Solo spin-off film, we started thinking about how Penn State’s finest would look in a galaxy far, far away…

The Willard Preacher as Jar Jar Binks
“Meesa say you will go to Hell.”

James Franklin and Mace Windu
