Jabba the Hutt

Jabba the Hutt is a character in the Star Wars movies.

Jabba is of the Hutt race, and like most of his species, he is a gangster. Hutts are a large slug-like race with thick, leathery skin, human-like arms, large dead-black eyes, and wide mouths. An adult Hutt may weigh in excess of several tons. The species displays apparent sexual dimorphism, with the males being larger than the females.

Prior to Episode 4 (A New Hope), Jabba loaned Han Solo a large sum of money, and when the smuggler failed to pay him back, he put a price on Han's head. Greedo attempted to collect the bounty, but was killed for his efforts; the bounty was eventually collected, between Episodes 5 and 6, by Boba Fett.

In Episode 6, Return of the Jedi, Luke Skywalker entered Jabba's palace to free Han Solo.
