"You must be starving. Bring him some dung worms."
Peli Motto about Grogu[1]

Dung worms were edible animals on Tatooine. Around 9 ABY,[2] Peli Motto supplied dung worms for Grogu to eat.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Within the canonical Star Wars continuity, dung worms first appeared in "Chapter 7: In the Name of Honor," the seventh episode of the live-action television series The Book of Boba Fett, which was written by Jon Favreau, directed by Robert Rodriguez, and aired on Disney+ on February 9, 2022.[1]

Dung worms were originally introduced in the Star Wars Legends continuity in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace video game.[3]

  2. The attack on Jabba's Palace, depicted in "Chapter 16: The Rescue," is dated to be around nine years after the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which include the Battle of Yavin, by "Jabba the Hutt and Other Bounty Hunters and Criminals". As the present-time events of The Book of Boba Fett occur shortly after the attack, The Book of Boba Fett must take place around 9 ABY. Additionally, SWInsider.png "A Certain Point of View" – Star Wars Insider 211 states that the Assassination attempt on Boba Fett and Boba Fett's hiring of Krrsantan, which appear in "Chapter 3: The Streets of Mos Espa" and "Chapter 4: The Gathering Storm" respectively, both take place nine years after A New Hope, which means at least two episodes take place exactly in 9 ABY.
