Moota Engatoo was a male merchant who was active during the reign of the Galactic Empire. In the year 2 BBY,[source?] he was present at a remote outpost on the desert planet of Tatooine; and there he told young Padawan Ezra Bridger some information on where to go next in his search for Maul, the former Sith Lord who intended to kill Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Behind the scenesEdit
The character Moota Engatoo was intended to appear in "Twin Suns," the twentieth episode of the animated television series Star Wars Rebels' third season. Engatoo was fully designed prior to being cut from the episode due to time constraints. In the early drafts of the episode, Ezra Bridger was supposed to go to Tatooine along with his master Kanan Jarrus and follow a path of clues left by Maul, including a visit to a remote outpost where Engatoo would give Bridger some information that would lead to Maul. The idea of Jarrus' involvement was ultimately abandoned and Bridger was guided by the holocron fragments instead of clues.
