This article is about the real-world author. You may be looking for Palob Godalhi or the Rodian Pablo.

Pablo Hidalgo (born October 12, 1974) is a Chilean-Canadian creative executive and author currently working for Lucasfilm within the Lucasfilm Story Group. He is known for his creation of material ranging from West End Games role-playing game (RPG) resources to content for StarWars.com, where he went under the screen name of Pabawan. He is also a founding member of the Star Wars Fanboy Association. He served as Internet Content Manager for Lucas Online until 2011, and also worked as a comics writer on StarWars.com.

Until January 2000, Hidalgo wrote and managed the Star Wars Index at echostation.com, when he abandoned the project to work for Lucasfilm.

He had a cameo playing Janu Godalhi (an anagram of Pablo's real-life father, Juan Hidalgo) in Revenge of the Sith and was also referenced with the character Palob Godalhi.

After The Walt Disney Company acquired Lucasfilm, Hidalgo was assigned a job within the[1] still newly formed[2] Lucasfilm Story Group, a small group of Star Wars experts whose main purpose is to create and maintain one cohesive canon, thereby eliminating the previous hierarchical canon. Hidalgo is currently a creative executive in story development at Lucasfilm, as well as one of the members of the Intellectual Property Development Group.[1] He is well known for writing the reference books that accompany the release of new movies.

In addition to his Star Wars work, Hidalgo has written or coauthored reference guides for both the G.I. Joe and Transformer franchises.[3]
