Behind the scenesEdit

The wapota appeared in early drafts of the screenplay for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Concept artwork of the creature by Matt Allsopp, Jake Lunt Davies and Luke Fisher appears in the reference book The Art of Solo: A Star Wars Story, which describes the wapota as an "elephant-sized naked mole creature" with a giant drill on its face, which is spooked by the riot incited by L3-37 and DD-BD on Kessel, resulting lumbering foot chase as Han Solo and Chewbacca make their escape.[1] Although not named, the creature made its first canon appearance in Solo: A Star Wars Story: A Junior Novel, where it is described as "a gargantuan, ten-legged shape with what appeared to be an enormous oscillating drill strapped to the front of its head".[2]
