""This is a thermal detonator…*clicks tongue*…that I just armed"
"That's a rock!"
"No it's not."
"Yes it is! And you just made a clicking sound with your mouth!"
Lady Proxima and Han Solo[1]

Yuzzum singer Joh Yowza had a large mouth

A mouth was a feature of anatomy found in many species which was used to eat, speak, and breathe. The Kallidahin did not have mouths, but could still breathe and speak.[2] Ithorians had two mouths, one on either side of their neck,[3] and their unique throat structure prevented them from speaking Galactic Basic Standard, although an Ithorian technician appeared to be able to speak it.[4] Cosians were a species that had faces that elongated into beaked mouths.[5] The Shawda Ubb Rappertunie, a member of the Max Rebo Band, played an instrument known as a Growdi Harmonique, which required the use of his fingers, toes, and mouth.[6]

Behind the scenes[]

Mouths first appeared in the 1977 film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, the first installment of the Star Wars original trilogy.[7]

During the production of A New Hope, the mechanism to move Greedo's mouth broke just before he needed to be shot. Maria De Aragon, who played Greeedo in close-up shots, was then asked to put a clothespin between her teeth to move Greedo's mouth, making Greedo come to life.[8]
