"If I told you half the things I've heard about this Jabba the Hutt, you'd probably short-circuit!"
C-3PO to R2-D2[src]

Jabba the Hutt was a Hutt gangster and crime lord who operated from his palace on the Outer Rim world of Tatooine. The father to Rotta, Jabba was a major figure on Tatooine, where he controlled the bulk of the trafficking in illegal goods, piracy and slavery that generated most of the planet's wealth; in addition, he controlled the spaceports and settlements on the planet.

Waning days of the RepublicEdit

During the final days of the Republic, Jabba the Hutt was known to preside over Tatooine's podraces. Notably, he was present when Anakin Skywalker won the Boonta Eve race[8], a momentous event with ramifications not even the mighty Jabba could have foreseen.

The Clone WarsEdit

Following the beginning of the Clone Wars, Jabba's son Rotta was kidnapped by the Confederacy of Independent Systems, in a plot to deny Hutt space access to the Republic's forces. After the group of bounty hunters he had hired had tracked Rotta to Teth but had been returned beheaded, Jabba contacted the Jedi for help. The Separatists allowed for the Huttlet to be returned, but using a counterfeited video Count Dooku tried to persuade Jabba that the Jedi were behind the kidnapping, while in the meantime his own forces were trying to reacquire Rotta. Eventually the Jedi managed to deliver him safely to his parent, which in turn aligned his criminal empire with the Republic.[9]


Jabba perished on his Sail barge near the Great Pit of Carkoon at the hands of Leia Organa. A member of the Rebel Alliance, Leia was captured by Jabba along with her friends Luke Skywalker and Chewbacca as the trio attempted to rescue their friend and ally Han Solo. Jabba had then claimed and dressed Leia as one of his slaves, and was keeping her chained by his side. In an ironic turn of events, Leia strangled Jabba to death using her chain.[2]
