Bekk Tunit was a famous podracer who crashed at some point prior to the invasion of the planet Naboo[1] in the year 32 BBY.[2] One of Tunit's gloves was recovered from the crash site and by 32 BBY it had come into the possession of the Toydarian junk dealer Watto, who kept it on the trophy shelf of podracing memorabilia within his shop in the city of Mos Espa on the planet Tatooine.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Bekk Tunit was first mentioned in canon in the 2016 reference book Star Wars: Complete Locations.[1] The mention of Tunit in the book is a reprint of information from Tunit's first mention in the 2000 Star Wars Legends reference book Inside the Worlds of Star Wars: Episode I, which was written by Kristin Lund.[3]
