"I am saving you the trouble of embarrassing yourself with all the mesa mesa bantha poodoo. Just don't."
―Aro N'Cookkaala, to Han Solo[src]

Gunganese was the native language of the Gungans, an amphibious species from Naboo. In practice, the Gungans often used a pidgin tongue that combined Galactic Basic with Gunganese words and speech patterns.[1] Although stereotyped as exclusively using the pidgin, some Gungans, like Aro N'Cookkaala, spoke perfect Basic.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

In Star Wars Legends sources, the term "Gunganese" was applied to the Gungan-accented pidgin Basic rather than the native Gungan language, which in turn was referred to as "Old Gungan."[5]
