«I have come for the bounty on this Wookiee.»
―"Boushh" speaking UbeseGnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]

Ubese,[2] also known as Ubesian,[3] was a language that sounded like a scratchy, guttural monotone.[2] Princess Leia Organa learned Ubese using Ebenn Q3 Baobab's Easy Ubese Phrase Book.[4] She spoke the language when she infiltrated the palace of Jabba the Hutt on the planet Tatooine[1] in the guise of the Ubese bounty hunter Boushh.[5] The protocol droid C-3PO was fluent in Ubese, and translated it for Jabba when his master was having a conversation with "Boushh".[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Ubese first appeared in the 1983 film Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.[1] Although the language was not named on screen,[1] it was identified as such in the subtitles of the 2006 Limited Edition version of the film on both re-mastered and original cuts.[7]
