JABBA THE HUTT

Name:  Jabba the Hutt, Jabba Desilijic Tiure

Features:  Gross looking oversized slug

Source:  Star Wars

Habitat:  Outer Space



Jabba the Hutt is an alien that resembles an enormous overgrown slug.  He has large red eyes, a crooked nose, a very long slit for a mouth, a pointed tongue and a triple chin.

He has two small arms in proportion to the rest of his body, a very large worm like torso and a large & long tail.  His skin is moist, amphibian like and he oozes green slime and has a horrible stench.

This fictional alien character is extremely disgusting in every way imaginable.

In the Star Wars films, Jabba makes his first appearance in Return of the Jedi.  He uses his status as a powerful crime boss on Tatooine to hire some bounty hunters to capture a heroic smuggler known as Han Solo.

His formal name being His excellency Jabba Desilijic Tiure of Nal Hutta, Eminence of Tatooine.  He was a crime boss and a member of the Grand Hutt Council.  His palace was situated on the Outer Rim world of Tatooine.  Since he controlled most of the illegal goods trafficking, slavery and piracy in the area – his business ventures generated most of the planet’s wealth.

He is the perfect example of over the top gluttony, greed and lust.  He is disgusting, vile and has an insatiable appetite.  Jabba the Hutt amuses himself in humiliating and torturing his subjects as well as his enemies.  He even had a laughing side kick that kept by his side named Salacious Crumb.

He speaks the fictional language of Huttese.  Many of his phrases are available online via sound clips;

  • Wee now - kong bantha poodoo
  • Eejah wahnkee Chewebacca
  • Jar-wa ju nichu-a
  • Bolkubok-u-chala
  • Bon gon wan she co, cah


Some of Jabba’s famous quotes are;

  • This bounty hunter is my kind of scum, fearless and inventive.
  • You weak minded fool!  He’s using an old Jedi mind trick.
  • Bring me Solo and the Wookie.  They will all suffer for this outrage!


Just in case you have not watched Return of the Jedi yet – stop reading now.


Jabba the Hutt was eventually choked to his death by Leia Organa with a chain.  When opportunity strikes - she grabs the chain that he has kept her captive with, wraps it around his neck and pulls back with all her might.

Jabba the Hutt tries to grab at the chain with his little arms as he slowly chokes & while his tongue is flopping about. Leia keeps puling back until his tail twitches about and he lets out his final gasp.

How does she break free from the chain?  Why R2D2 comes to the rescue and zaps the chain, breaking it.
