Talzzi was a language spoken by the Talz, a primitive species native to the planet Orto Plutonia, whose vocalizations sounded like a series of snarls. The language was spoken by Thi-Sen, the chieftain of the Talz, and Medcha Wanto, his scribe. The protocol droid C-3PO was able to translate Talzzi, an ability that found use when representatives from the Pantoran Assembly attempted to broker peace with the Talz in order to end an ongoing war between the Talz and the Pantorans for control of Orto Plutonia during the Clone Wars.
Behind the scenesEdit
- "They have a language barrier. I think that worked very well for the story."
- ―Supervising director Dave Filoni, on how the Talz's language barrier helped further the story of "Trespass"
Talzzi first appeared in "Trespass," the fifteenth episode of the canon animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' first season, though it was only identified as such in the subtitles included for the episode in Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Complete Season One, a box set available on Blu-ray or DVD that included the entirety of the first season of the The Clone Wars that was released on November 3, 2009. The language was identified simply as "Talz language" in the Netflix subtitles for "Trespass." Although a Talz known as Muftak spoke in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, it has yet to be canonically confirmed that the language he spoke was Talzzi.
