Behind the scenesEdit

Originally, the kaadu were to be native Tatooine beasts of burden.[5] However, due to the evolving story of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, which called for the Gungans to be beast-riding soldiers, the kaadu was transported to Naboo,[6] and the eopie was created in its place from modified concept art of the kaadu.[5] Upon their transfer to Naboo, the kaadu were given aquatic characteristics, particularly a duck-billed snout and smoother skin.[6]

Kaadu sounds were provided by recordings of pigs' grunts and whales' breaths.[7]

Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia classifies kaadu as reptavians, while Ultimate Star Wars and the Databank say they are avians. As the species has more reptavian than avian traits, this article uses the former classification.
