100 Days of Star Wars Trivia – Day 77: Hutt


Day 77:

Master makeup artist and puppet designer Stuart Freeborn created many creatures for the original Star Wars trilogy. Among them are Yoda and Jabba the Hutt. The crime lord Jabba the Hutt was a massive puppet that took up to seven puppeteers to operate. It weighed around one-ton and was difficult to move around the set. That probably explains why Lucas reverted to a CGI Hutt for his special edition of “A New Hope.”

In the 100 days of Star Wars trivia series, we share 100 unique facts about the Star Wars franchise as we count down the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on December 18, 2015.
