"Lapti Nek" The Music Video from Jabba's Palace was a music video screened by MTV in 1983 to accompany the release of the "Lapti Nek" record.


The music video is notable in that it appears to be shot from an in-universe perspective, including many deleted scenes, alternate angles and differing edits. This particular version of the musical sequence within Jabba's Palace, which was filmed as part of the 1983 theatrical edition of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, differs just enough that characters who appeared only briefly in the theatrical cut are given significantly more screen time than their onscreen debuts.

The video also makes use of material cut from the final print of Return of the Jedi, originally alluded to by Bib Fortuna actor Michael Carter in an interview on TheForce.Net.[3]




The "Lapti Nek" music video was released commercially on the Star Wars Trilogy: The Definitive Collection laserdisc. Largely forgotten, the video has become more widely known in recent years through video-streaming sites such as YouTube.
