From Syfy Wire:
“You might not remember Queen Jamillia of Naboo; she has about three minutes of screen time in Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones. The prequel trilogy downplaying nominally powerful women to the degree that a scene about Padmé founding the Rebellion got cut out of Revenge of the Sith? I don’t know what you’re talking about! But she warrants our attention and adoration for three reasons.
First, she immediately passes the Bechdel Test with Padmé upon being introduced, as the both literal and figurative queens discuss the threat of the Separatists to the Republic and Padmé’s safety. Of course, Anakin’s only contribution to this discussion is: The Jedi? Investigate in this economy? SHUT UP ANAKIN THE QUEENS ARE TALKING. […]
Second, she’s the first queen of color that we see onscreen in Star Wars, portrayed by Indian actress Ayesha Dharker. […]
And last but definitely not least, she rocks that 10-piece mother-of-pearl headpiece like no else in the galaxy. Padmé’s a tough act to follow, both personally—the people of Naboo wanted to amend their constitution so she could rule forever, which is a lot—and sartorially, but Jamillia doesn’t skip a beat. Now that’s a Queen.”
