Star Wars Squee - Day Four

Hutts, Ewoks and Mynocks, OH MY!


Okay, I had intended to get this done last night and then got home and... didn't. But that's not the point!

Today's conversation post is about the life - and wildlife - of the Star Wars universe! Everyone I hear, these days, is always talking about how amazing the universe is that James Cameron built for Avatar, and how nothing had ever been done like that before.



Just in Star Wars (Episode IV, if you're technical), we have the following races ON SCREEN: (and most of them are in the Cantina scene...)

Abyssin
Advoszec
Anzat
Aqualish
Arcona
Bith
Brizzit
Chadra-Fan
Defel
Devaronian
Duros
Droids [Okay, I added this in. They are a species, after all]
Givin
Gotal
H'nemthe
Human [Han Solo, Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, etc]
Ithorian
Jawa
Kubaz
Lamproid
Lutrillian
Mantellian Savrip (Appears in hologram)
Morseerian
Bimm (near-Human)
Nimbanel
Qiraash
Quor'sav
Ranat
Rodian [Greedo]
Sakiyan
Saurin
Shistavanen
Siniteen
Snivvian
Stennes Shifter
Talz
Ghorfa [aka Tusken Raiders aka "sand people"]
Vuvrian
Wookiee [Chewbacca]
Yam'rii

And that doesn't even include the womp rats, bullseyed for target practice!

For a full list (at mostly present) of the species in the Star Wars universe - Expanded, included - check THIS LINK. <-- Never doubt the fans and their over-attention to details ;-)


So.. do YOU have a favorite Star Wars species? How about a character?

I really think that this is what sucked me into these movies seeing as science fiction wasn't something I cared much for as a kid. The diversity and the immense creativity that went into all of these different species is enough to make you sit and watch, just to see what comes next.

It's been a long time since I've watched any of them, but one of the things I always remember clearly is the cantina scene, not even sure which movie. The band sticks out in my mind and I remember laughing and being slightly afraid the first time I saw it all.

The Cantina scene is in the first movie.

The one that always terrified me was Luke in the Rancor pit, in Jedi. Well, really, any of the scenes involving Jabba the Hutt gives me the creeps :D

Completely unrelated.. but have you heard CopaCantina?

Ah, okay - thank you!

*shudders* Yeah, I can completely understand why anything dealing with Jabba the Hutt would creep you out. As a side note, I had a giant hamster at one time (he was a two-handed hammie, he was so big) and one of my husband's friends started calling him Jabba the Hamster. LOL He was much cuter than the Hutt, however. :)

No, I've never heard of it, what is it?

If anyone ever tells you this is by Wierd Al, just smack them.

And it's SO appreciated!

It just occurred to me that Weird Al did do a Star Wars song though called "The Saga Begins".

(and hopefully this works, I'm not very good with these things)

That, he definitely did. And it made me like the song. *nods* And there's a Yoda one, too.

There's another one out there for Yoda, set to Ricky Martin, but that one is not Wierd Al.

I love the cantina scene in the first movie, and was amused when the band made another appearance in Jedi.

My favorite character would be Yoda.

I always wanted to see the Jawa's without their sand protective clothing on...did their eyes really glow or what? lol.

Was always a Han fan...but when Ewan took over Obi-wan...well, he had me hooked there for sure :D
