BiographyEdit

Ama

Amanaman.

Amanaman resembled a yellow, giant, shriveled planarian, with long gangly arms, and a green back and stripe pattern. Amanin were also known by the colloquial name "head hunters" due to their tendency to collect their victims' heads as souvenirs, and Amanaman was no exception; for a time around 4 ABY he wielded a staff from which three prized heads grotesquely hung, and kept a dried decapitated corpse, all from unidentified victims, at his side. At his most, he collected 35 heads displayed on posts around the palace complex.

Behind the scenesEdit

Amanaman appeared in Return of the Jedi and was played by puppeteer Ailsa Berk. Since Amanaman does not speak, Ailsa is officially credited as a "mime artist."

Amanaman can be seen several times in Jabba's Palace. He is first seen when Jabba reveals Han Solo frozen in carbonite. He can also be seen when the Max Rebo Band performs—although he is reclining so he is hard to spot—and he is seen again when Leia and Han are discovered, and the last time he is seen is when Luke and Han are sentenced to death.
