Trivia: The boy who is the Golden Child isn't really a boy at all. The director's cast a young girl named J.L. Reate to play the part. As for the lack of hair, no prosthetics or rubber used here, as they really did shave her head bald.

Question: Does anybody know why Sardo Numspa can't pronounce J's? Such as when he pronounces Chandler Jarell as Yarell. I've looked but can't seem to find any explanation.

Answer: A lot of non english speaking countries have trouble pronouncing the letter J as it does not appear in their alphabet. It is a fairly recent addition to the english language too. Previously words that now start with a J would have began with an "I" sound as in "Iarell".
