The fingerlip garpon was a species of scalefin fish found in the oceans of the planets Ahch-To and Corellia. The fish had silver-scaled bodies with long thin lower jaws that extended far beyond their broader upper jaws below their nostrils and black eyes. The species possessed a pair of fins extending from just behind their gills and a tail fin. The fisherman of Coronet City on Corellia, and members of the sentient Lanai species on Ahch-To caught fingerlip garpons for food. In the year 34 ABY, the Lanai caretaker matron Alcida-Auka prepared a garpon with a fish scaling knife in the Jedi village where Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and the scavenger Rey were residing.
Behind the scenesEdit
A fingerlip garpon first appeared in the 2017 film Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi. The prop was not named in the film, but received identification in Star Wars: The Last Jedi: The Visual Dictionary, a reference book written by Pablo Hidalgo and released in conjunction with the film. The prop was then reused in the 2018 film Solo: A Star Wars Story.
