Noisily, the main gate lifts to flood the blackness with blinding LIGHT and reveal the silhouetted figure of LUKE SKYWALKER.


Dan Telfer



  • Starts with a mysterious figure entering Jabba's Palace
  • Ends with Luke Skywalker confronting Jabba the Hutt.
  • The iconic Slave Leia is introduced in this scene.


  • Luke Force chokes someone instantly without giving it a second thought.
  • The staging of this sequence makes it look very fake. The guards should be more surprised or shocked.
  • This is another great sequence for the musical remake of the movie.
  • The audience is supposed to think that Luke is slipping towards the Dark Side. This is the first time we see a "good guy" doing something bad.
  • Who taught Luke to Force choke? Yoda? If so, did they practice on each other in the beginning.
  • The term "Force choke" was popularized in EU - it wasn't really a concept when the movies were first released.
  • Why this sequence is staged the way it is. Was it done to avoid Luke violently killing anybody?
  • Luke is the first person to be on Bib Fortuna's wave-length. Bib Fortuna is truly an alien from another system.
  • This sequence feels too rehearsed and over-directed. Great moves but with a very awkward feel and silly dialogue.
  • Close up of Jabba sleeping as Salacious Crumb looks at either Jabba's tail or Leia.
  • Everyone is sleeping again, so when is all the action at Jabba's Palace taking place? This must be the morning after Leia was captured during the night.
  • Where did Leia's outfit come from?
  • This sleeping scene looks ever worse than the first scene.
  • Only Leia, Bib Fortuna, Salacious Crumb and the guards are awake. Maybe the guards only just woke-up and that's why they're not at their best.
  • Lando could have killed Jabba there and then but he may have known that Luke was close by and didn't want to start a fight. Lando has the worst job of our heroes and has to work the hardest.
  • The hosts try to figure out the plan - again.
  • Everyone that arrives for the rescue gets captured almost straight-away; only Lando has held his cover.
  • Why didn't Lando warn Leia that it was a bad time to release Han from the carbonite?
  • Why Lando lowers his mask the couple of times that he does.
  • Everyone in the palace knows all about the plan and Lando and everything.
  • Slave Leia, Carrie Fisher and audience reactions.
  • The few female characters in Star Wars.
  • Aunt Beru cosplayers.
  • What is C-3PO doing in this sequence? He's just standing facing the back wall.
  • C-3PO is basically useless for this whole gambit and does very little translation.
  • Changes to Wookiepedia following the Disney purchase - canon versus Legends.
  • EU material making its way into canon (e.g. Coruscant).
  • Bib Fortuna recognizes Luke Skywalker right away - maybe from the earlier hologram.
  • Independent Star Wars movies from the other character's points of view. This would be a great extra on a DVD-ROM.
  • A Bib Fortuna solo movie would be very surreal.
  • Bib Fortuna's prosthetic teeth would keep flying out during filming.
  • Support the Show.
