A criminal empire was led by Jabba the Hutt. Its base was Jabba's Palace on the desert planet of Tatooine.


In 22 BBY, Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, along with his Padawan Ahsoka Tano returned Jabba's son Rotta, to Tatooine in hopes of the Galactic Republic gaining access over the Hutt's secret hyperspace routes against the Confederacy of Independent Systems despite sabotage from Asajj Ventress and Sith Lord Count Dooku. Subsequently the Hutt Clan, became an ally of the Galactic Republic signing a treaty with them.[5]

When Han Solo, Jabba's favorite smuggler on his payroll, was forced to jettison a shipment when the Millennium Falcon was boarded by Imperial authorities. Furious at the loss of a part of his empire's fortune, Jabba demanded compensation for the lost cargo, but as Solo didn't recompose, the crime lord sent bounty hunters after him. When the Rodian Greedo was killed by Solo, Solo spoke with Jabba at Docking Bay 94 in Mos Eisley and Jabba gave him more time. Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, in which the Alliance to Restore the Republic, with Solo's help, managed to destroy the Death Star,[1] the Empire decided to negotiate with an envoy in Jabba's employ on Cymoon 1, in the Corellian Industrial Cluster. Sith Lord Darth Vader, was send as the Imperial negotiator with the intent of forcing Jabba's envoy in a deal favorable to the Empire. The envoy's vessel was hijacked by the Rebel Alliance, and with a team of rebels including Solo, they used it to assault and destroy Weapons Factory Alpha on Cymoon 1.[8] Emperor Palpatine sent Vader to Jabba's Palace to negotiate. Once there, Jabba was not interested in negotiating with Vader, and his Gamorrean guards were sent to eliminate the Sith, but Vader killed Jabba's guards and briefly choked Jabba in order to show what his fate will be if he didn't listened to him.[3] The next day, Vader ended his negotiations with Jabba and left his palace.[9]

Three years after the Battle of Yavin, Boba Fett was hired by Vader track down the Millennium Falcon. Following the ship to Cloud City, Solo was frozen in carbonite and taken to Jabba by Fett.[10]


One year after Solo's capture, Solo's friend Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and his rebel party attempted to convince Jabba to liberate Solo. Skywalker sent the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 to Jabba's Palace to negotiate with Jabba via hologram. The offer was so generous, but the Hutt was uninterested in Skywalker's proposal. Skywalker presented at his palace and after Jabba tried to execute him, he killed Pateesa, Jabba's pet rancor.[2]

Furious about his pet's death, Jabba attempted to execute Skywalker's friends at the Great Pit of Carkoon as food for the Pit's Sarlacc. Jabba and the members of his empire went to the Pit aboard Jabba's sail barge. Skywalker warned Jabba once more, but he chuckled the young Skywalker's warnings. This decision costed Jabba not only his empire, his life also, as Luke's sister Leia Organa, who Jabba made his slave, choked him to death with a chain. At the end, members of Jabba's empire fell into the sarlacc's mouth or were killed by Organa and Skywalker blew up Jabba's sail barge.[2]
