Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Ketwol first appeared in the 1997 Special Edition re-release of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, in which he was portrayed by a puppet created by special effect artist Howie Weed. Ketwol's puppet was the same puppet used for Melas, except turned around. The back of Ketwol's head became Mela's face and Ketwol's trunk and tusks were concealed by Melas' turban.

"From the Ketwol creature I was also able to create another Cantina creature called Melas. Effects supervisor John Knoll noticed that the back of our Ketwol puppet's head looked like a completely different creature, so we turned it around, redressed it with new clothing, and shot it as a separate character. Two monsters for the price of one!"
