In 4 ABY, the evening before the Battle of Endor, Nippet was present in Bright Tree Village when the Ewoks captured the Heroes of Yavin. She watched as C-3PO, pretending to be the Ewoks' god, recounted the earlier years of the Galactic Civil War.
Behind the scenesEdit
Some older sources conflicted over whether Nippet's name was spelled Nippet or Nippett,[source?] but more recent sources confirm the one-T spelling.
For many years, fans speculated that Nippet was the wokling sitting in a basket in Return of the Jedi, since Nippet was confirmed to have been in the film. However, this remained officially unconfirmed until Hasbro's 2008 figure (packaged with Leektar) confirmed that Nippet was in fact that wokling.
Nippet was one of six 8-inch plush woklings made by Kenner based upon the six woklings seen in Return of the Jedi. While the character names of Malani, Nippet, and Wiley were established prior in the Ewoks television series, the other three—Mookiee, Leeni, and Gwig—have yet to be attributed to their respective characters seen in Return of the Jedi.
