"We have found a new hope, and the word for that new hope is Jeedai."
Vuurok I'pan to Nom Anor[1]

"Jeedai" was a word for Jedi commonly used by various species throughout the galaxy, most notably during the Jedi Civil War and the Yuuzhan Vong War.

Jeedai was the word for Jedi in Huttese,[2] and was also commonly used by the Yuuzhan Vong. A notable exception among the Yuuzhan Vong was Nom Anor, who used the word "Jedi" instead of Jeedai, indicating the time he had spent in the galaxy prior to the Yuuzhan Vong War. In other cases, Jeedai may have been intended as an insult, or possibly the equivalent of a regional inflection. The Morgukai warriors Bok and Tsyr referred to Jedi as Jeedai.

Behind the scenes[]

In Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, Hanharr's subtitle also uses the word "Jeedai" instead of "Jedi" but since he cannot pronounce words in Basic, it's only an implication that he pronounces the word in a different manner than any other Wookiees. Vossk also uses it in Knights of the Old Republic II.

Various Nightsisters in Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Jedi Alliance call the Jedi "Jeedai".

In first Marvel Comics in French, "Jeedaï" or "Djeedaï" are used to translate Jedi, as other names, in a more French line. However, this translation is no longer used in their current Expanded Universe.
