There will be no bargain, young Jedi. I shall enjoy watching you die.
~ Jabba to Luke in Return of the Jedi.
Jabba the Hutt, born as Jabba Desilijic Tiure, is a crime lord and major character in the Star Wars franchise. He is the tertiary antagonist in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi.

He was portrayed by the late Declan Mulholland and voiced by the late Larry Ward.

Appearance

Jabba is an enormous, fat slug-like creature of the Hutt species, Jabba can barely move around in an environment of humanoids and is defenseless on his own, instead relying on numerous henchmen and slaves to get what he wants.

Jabba is best remembered by audiences for his disgusting appearance and enormous girth, which has been parodied numerous times and is commonly associated with obesity, even though in Jabba's case it is an inherent trait of his race.

Personality

Jabba enjoys torture of his enemies, and entertainment from slaves. In the battle between the Republic and the Separatists, and later the Rebellion and the Empire, the Hutts are neutral. However Jabba has Han Solo in frozen carbonite by Boba Fett as his personal "trophy", and refuses to listen to any bargain that the Rebels propose for him to bring about Solo's release, and he is eventually strangled to death by Leia Organa, who he had made into his personal slave, with the chains he bound her with. Jabba is consumed by flames when his ship explodes. Jabba's sexual tendencies aren't fully explored however he forces his female slaves to dress degradingly then later provocatively dance for his amusement. He makes his favourite slaves, such as Oola then later Leia sit next to him and be chained like his personal pet or prize.

History

In his unofficial appearance in the Special Edition version of A New Hope, Jabba meets Han at the Falcon, to demand the money the captain owed him, and to ask why Greedo is blasted.  Han then tells the Hutt that he has a charter and will pay him back with a little exta.  Jabba agreed, but he made it clear that if Han failed again, he would put such a high price on Han's head, that he wouldn't be able to go anywhere without an army of bounty hunters waiting to collect it.  The last time Jabba is seen in this version is when he tells Boba Fett to get moving and they leave.

Jabba the Hutt made his first actual appearance as the tertiary antagonist in Return of the Jedi, which contains the main events described above and includes his death, but was also mentioned frequently in The Empire Strikes Back and was actually created at the time of the first Star Wars movie, where his scene was deleted due to inadequate special effects and budget, but was later added back in for the remake. He also makes a cameo in Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, where he hosts the Podrace on Tatooine. And of course, Jabba the Hutt appears in countless works of the "Expanded Universe".

Trivia

  • Jabba also wants a green lightsaber. He always makes the sounds himself.
  • The whole scene of Jabba CGI's appearance on A New Hope was highly disliked. Mainly because Jabba's design in both 1997 Special Edition and 2004 DVD Release didn't look like his portrayal on The Return of the Jedi. There is also the fact that Jabba's appearance (and himself) was supposed to be a mystery to the audience until The Return of the Jedi came out.
