With the acquisition of Lucasfilm by The Walt Disney Companyall literature in this category was rebranded as Star Wars Legends and designated as non-canonical to any and all new media released after April Zorba the Hutt's Revengea young-adult novel by Paul and Hollace Davidsidentifies Jabba's father as another powerful crime lord named Zorba and reveals that Jabba was born years before the events of A New Hopemaking him around years old at the time of his death in Return of the Jedi.

Andersonpieces together the lives of Jabba the Hutt's various minions in his palace and their relationship to him during the last days of his life.
These stories reveal that very few of the Hutt's servants are loyal to him, with many plans underway among their ranks to attempt his assassination. When Jabba the Hutt is killed in Return of the Jedihis surviving former courtiers join forces with his rivals on Tatooine and his family on the Hutt homeworld Nal Hutta make claims to his palace, fortune, and criminal empire.

Jabba the Hutt's physical appearance reinforces his personality as a criminal deviant. Film critic Roger Ebert described him as "a cross between a toad and the Cheshire Cat. Among Jabba's only displays of any positive qualities within the franchise occur in Star Wars: The Clone Warswhere he demonstrates genuine affection for his son Rotta and is worried by his kidnapping and angered by his supposed death.
In one Expanded Universe story, Jabba prevents a Chevin named Ephant Mon from freezing to death on an ice planet, whereafter Ephant Mon becomes one of his most loyal servants. The original script to A New Hope describes Jabba as a "fat, slug-like creature with eyes on extended feelers and a huge ugly mouth",  but Lucas stated in an interview that the initial character he had in mind was much furrier and resembled a Wookiee. Lucas planned to replace Mulholland in post-production with a stop-motion creature.
Joseph Letteri, the visual effects supervisor for the Special Edition, explained that the ultimate goal of the revised scene was to make it look as if Jabba the Hutt was actually on the set talking to and acting with Harrison Ford and that the crew had merely photographed it. Letteri stated that the new scene consisted of five shots that took over a year to complete.
At one point of the original scene, Ford walks behind Mulholland. This became a problem when adding the CGI Jabba, since he had a tail that happened to be in the way. Eventually, this problem was solved by having Han stepping on Jabba's tail, causing the Hutt to yelp in pain. Also, in order to make Jabba look more convincing, shadows of Han can be seen on his body. Lucas confesses that people were disappointingly upset about the CGI Jabba's appearance, complaining that the character "looked fake".
Lucas dismisses this, stating that whether a character Jabba The Hutt (Return Of The Jedi) - John Williams - John Williams Conducts John Williams - The St ultimately portrayed as a puppet or as CGI, it will always be "fake" since the character is ultimately not real. He says he sees no difference between a puppet made of latex and one generated by a computer. Design consultant Ralph McQuarrie claimed, "In my sketches Jabba was huge, agile, sort of an apelike figure.
But then the design went into another direction, and Jabba became more like a worm kind of creature. One made Jabba appear too human—almost like a Fu Manchu character—while a second made him look too snail-like.
Lucas finally settled on a design that was a hybrid of the two, drawing for further inspiration on an O'Galop cartoon figure flanking an early depiction of Bibendum also known 6 Katares - Nergal - The Wizard Of Nerath the "Michelin Man".
My vision of Jabba was literally Orson Welles when he was older. I saw him as a very refined man. Most of the villains we like are very smart people. But Phil Tippett kept imagining him as some kind of slug, almost like in Alice in Wonderland. At one time he sculpted a creature that looked like a slug that's smoking. I kept thinking I must be really off, but eventually that's where it led up to.
Designed by visual effects artist Phil Tippett,  Jabba the Hutt was inspired by the anatomy of several animal species. His body structure and reproductive processes were based on annelid wormshairless animals that have no skeleton and are hermaphroditic. Jabba's head was modeled after that of a snake, complete with bulbous, slit-pupilled eyes and a mouth that opens wide enough to swallow large prey.
His skin was given moist, amphibian qualities. Jabba's design would come to represent almost all members of the Hutt species in subsequent Star Wars fiction. In Return of the JediJabba is portrayed by a one-ton puppet that took three months and half a million dollars to construct. While filming the movie, the puppet had its own makeup artist. The puppet required three puppeteers to operate, making it one of the largest ever used in a motion picture. Barclay operated the right arm and mouth and read the character's English dialogue, while Philpott controlled the left arm, head, and tongue.
Edmonds, the shortest of the three men he also played the Ewok Logray in later scenes was responsible for the movement of Jabba's tail. Tony Cox, who also played an Ewok, would assist as well. The eyes and facial Jabba The Hutt (Return Of The Jedi) - John Williams - John Williams Conducts John Williams - The St were operated by radio control.
Lucas voiced displeasure in the puppet's appearance and immobility, complaining that the puppet had to be moved around the set to film different scenes. Jabba the Hutt only speaks Huttese on film, but his lines are subtitled in English. His voice and Huttese-language dialogue were performed by voice actor Larry Wardwhose work is not listed in the end credits. A heavy, booming quality was given to Ward's voice by pitching it an octave lower than normal and processing it through a subharmonic generator.
Jabba the Hutt's musical theme throughout the film, composed by John Williamsis played on a tuba. Williams later turned the theme into a symphonic piece performed by the Boston Pops Orchestra featuring a tuba solo by Chester Schmitz. The role of the piece in film and popular culture has become a focus of study by musicologists such as Gerald Sloan, who says Williams' piece "blends the monstrous and the lyrical. Lucas decided Leia should strangle him with her slave chain.
He was inspired by a scene from The Godfather where an obese character named Luca Brasi Lenny Montana is garroted by an assassin. In Mulholland's scenes as Jabba, Jabba is represented as a rotund human dressed in a shaggy fur coat. George Lucas has stated his intention was to use an alien creature for Jabba, but the special effects technology of the time was not up to the task of replacing Mulholland.
Inthe "Special Edition" re-releases restored and altered the original scene to include a computer generated portrayal of Jabba. In The Phantom Menace 's end credits, Jabba was jokingly credited as playing himself.
In the radio drama adaption of the original trilogy, Jabba is played by Ed Asner.
