The Jabba Movie

The only way I could see this working is if it’s an anthology film in the spirit of the old Tales from Jabba’s Palace short story collection. Do a frame story with Jabba and then a handful of segments following different characters present at the palace. You could play around with genre a whole lot. There could be a Western segment, a horror segment, a gangster film segment, etc.

A Spinal Tap style story about the Max Rebo band would be awesome. Was playing Jabba’s palace a top of the line gig, or a descent into obscurity?

A Jabba movie would be at the very bottom of the barrel. Maybe in 10 years when they hit rock bottom they’ll go for that. I hope Patrick Warburton voices Jabba.

So you wanna be a rock ‘n’ roll star?

I wouldn’t mind seeing some more of the Rancor - the best thing about JEDI, imo.

Actually this could be more interesting than Han Solo or Obi-Wan films…

A movie with Jabba as the protagonist could never work. You can’t make a relatable character out of a massive immobile slug. A movie centered around Jabba’s Palace and his criminal empire in general could possibly maybe work, but it would take an auteur to pull it off right. If it was done right though, it might actually be something fun and original. But I’m not holding my breath.

The protagonist would have to be someone in his circle trying to gain favour or obtain wealth, or just escape. Something like that. Then you can have lots of underworld betrayals and clashes like a real gangster movie. We can revive Nar Shardaa, and throw in Bossk and 4-LOM for good measure. Problem is Jabba is presented as a 100% evil mollusc who lives like a medieval lord throwing people to their deaths and stuff, not a calculating mastermind.

They could make something like Casino (1995). So basically the protagonist would be one of the Jabba’s lieutenants sent to, let’s say, Nar Shaddaa or Coruscant to establish a crime syndicate for him there.

I wish I had the time and patience to replace Brando and DeNero with the CGI Jabba circa 1997. Now that would be a trilogy worth watching.

Already reestablished as of the second arc of the ongoing Marvel comic 😃

It should consist of Jabba reviewing different pizza places, climaxing with him reviewing Pizza Hut and saying that’s the best pizza that he’s ever ate.

If Plagueis shows up in the ST, not only will I refuse to watch the movies, but I won't so much as watch the trailers, either. - DuracellEnergizer
