    Question Try to explain this!!!

    I watched ANH SE again today and I noticed one of Han's lines to Jabba didn't add up:

    "Jabba, you're a wonderful human being."

    Okay, I know George didn't plan on Jabba being Jabba and all of the real life answers.

    But what about the Star Wars universe? Jabba isn't a human! He's a Hutt! Was Han being sarcastic? What's your take on this?

    2 its a movie

    3 if dogs and cats and bears and stuff walked around talking i think we could also consider them human beings if they did everything we did.

    4 its a movie

    I agree with Darth Vellner, I take it to be insulting to Jabba to call him human rather than a Hutt.

    By choosing not to decide you still have made a choice.

    When the film was shot, they had a human stand in as Jabba. At the time, he didn't plan on Jabba being a large sluglike creature. That is why Han looks awkward when steps on Jabba's tail. Harrison Ford walked behind the actor. They used computer graphics to make him step on Jabba's tail.
    If I remember the interview with Lucas in the begining of the tape, he left that line in because he thought it was funny. So yes, it is sarcasm.

    I figured it was for a bit of humor. I never watched the interview though, but I agree that it was kind of funny.

    I think it was just supposed to be funny. It sounds a little strange to me, though.

    I third that, or whatever. It's meant as an insult to Jabba.

    EU explains how Hutts see themselves aboce all other life forms, and I also feel that Lucus felt it was an insult to Jabba too.
