“Life Inside Jabba the Hutt” Is Not a Porn Fanfic, but Is a Great Documentary Short


From hearing “Jabba” speaking English on set to seeing the little person hidden in his tail, this documentary short will make you understand why George Lucas much prefers CGI even though the puppet is way cooler – the sheer effort it took to pull off the Hutt’s performance is amazing. And the clever way the editing hides a multitude of weaknesses shows you just how budget limits can lead to creativity.

Yes, digital is a LOT easier – but sometimes, having people suffer for their art is better for the end product.
