Gi Shatta Gasha was a Huttese phrase of exultation and praise.


The words were shouted during the victory celebration over the Trade Federation after the Invasion of Naboo in 32 BBY.[1]

In 4 ABY, news broke that the Rebel Alliance had triumphed at the Battle of Endor and Galactic Emperor Palpatine was confirmed dead, along with his right-hand man, Darth Vader. In reaction to the news, uprisings and spontaneous celebrations broke out across the galaxy. Several individuals were heard shouting this phrase during the Coruscant Uprising on Imperial Center.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

For some time, it was rumored that the phrase being shouted at the ends of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace was "The Son of Suns!", a phrase originating from some of the earliest Star Wars draft scripts as a prophetic quote from the Journal of the Whills referencing the 'Chosen One'. However, Matthew Wood, supervising sound editor on the Star Wars prequel trilogy, established that the phrase that was shouted during both celebrations "was the result of Ben Burtt making up some Huttese language because, after all, not everyone in the Star Wars galaxy speaks Basic."[3] However, the 2013 novel Darth Maul: Shadow Conspiracy introduced another Huttese phrase, "Gi Dopa Gasha"—meaning "the two suns." This indicates that the Huttese word gasha does mean "sun."[4]
