The Crime King

If Star Wars could have a signature “Godfather,” it would be Jabba the Hutt. Sure, he seems to have been sliming around since forever, making an appearance in nearly all of the first Star Wars film installments, and running crime circuits across a multitude of planets.

This smuggler, crime lord, and mob boss is not to be trifled with, no matter how slow-moving he may seem, and we want to learn more about him as one of the Star Wars stories we want to see on Disney Plus.

But, much like Palpatine, Jaba seems to appear from out of nowhere. In the films, he just appears, already an established crime boss and there’s no background about where he came from, how he managed to make so many criminal connections and why no one has tried to assassinate him despite his numerous sleazy dealing.

It’s actually fascinating how loyal Jabba’s minions are and it makes us wonder how he came to be at the core of the galaxy’s criminal dealings. We know he’s not going off his looks or his ability to sweet-talk his way out of a hairy situation.

Jabba has all this power, but why? What makes him so special and capable? We’d love to see his upbringing, who trained him if his whole species is known for this lifestyle, and if Jabba had any enemies who made honest attempts to get Jabba out of the picture. It would be a dicey show worth a binge.
