Plural form?Edit

Is the plural form of this creature "Dianogas?" Because if it is, then the first sentence is grammatically incorrect. - TopAce 20:29, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

  • I almost thought I heard both versions, but I've been seeing more of "dianogas" lately. -- Riffsyphon1024 22:05, 14 March 2006 (UTC)
    • The New Essential Guide to Alien Species has it without the s. --Borsk Fey'lya Talk 17:06, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Jabba & SmartnessEdit

In the Inside the worlds of the Trilogy it shows some kind of tentacle creature in one of the torture cells. Could it be A Dianoga? Also how intelegent were they? Quinlanfan 21:45, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

  • I doubt that was a dianoga that grabbed C-3PO in ROTJ. Likely just some other tentacled sentient or primitive species. Does your book show more than a tentacle? 23:24, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Dianoga Edit

Its funny, mayby.

Dianoga Size Edit

The article currently lists a dianoga's size as "3 to 10 meters." Is that the central body, or does that include the length of its tentacles? Maybe this should be indicated somewhere. Darth Sunder 03:27, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Toy Edit

The original Kenner toy for the Death Star playset included a Dianoga in it's trash compactor. The soft rubber form resembled a green, mutant shark with an eye stalk protruding from its nose and its fins ending with tentacles. Obviously, the creature's form has been confirmed by newer, more canon sources. However, I was wondering if anyone agreed that this article might benefit by a mention of that early representation. Thoughts? Medleystudios72 19:01, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Maybe in the behind the scenes section Garadex using the force since 19bby 21:30, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm going to edit the BTS section with that info if there are no objections then. Medleystudios72 19:30, January 26, 2010 (UTC)

Holiday SpecialEdit

Doesn't a Dianoga appear in this?Garadex Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

There might be one in the animated section. I'd have to re-watch to be sure. Medleystudios72 19:30, January 26, 2010 (UTC)

Another BTS tidbitEdit

As a child, I had a copy of a making of Star Wars book and I remember an anecdote of the actors having a laugh on the set. After a take of Mark Hamill being dragged underwater, he comes up with something brown on his armor and Harrison Ford sang (to the tune of Chattanooga Choo-Choo) "Pardon me boy, but is that dianoga poo-poo?" However, as I do not have the source to site, I'm not adding the anecdote to the article. For all I know, I'm confusing memories. However, I wanted to mention it here in case another wookieepedian happens to have corraborating material to site to add the anecdote. And if it's thought relevant.

I just checked Google Books, and Carrie Fisher relates this anecdote (or one very similar to it) in her memoir, Wishful Drinking. You can check yourself if you wish and add that information to "Behind the Scenes." ~ SavageBob 20:41, January 26, 2010 (UTC)
