Jawas were typically short natives of Tatooine. They were passionate scavengers, seeking out technology for sale or trade in the deep deserts in their huge sandcrawler transports. A band of Jawas was responsible for locating C-3PO and R2-D2 and selling them to Luke Skywalker’s uncle Owen Lars.

At all times, Jawa faces remained obscured by a shroud of cloth to retain moisture, hide their identity and dissipate their body heat. Polished orange gemstones were embedded within the fabric to protect the Jawas’ sensitive vision from the bright sunlight



We have reason to believe Jawas now live in Morocco. It would seem that they have adopted humanoid features, but still retain their distinctive hoodies.

    Say hi to Jabba. He is still in Tatooine, isn’t he?

  2. “Tatouane” (the French spelling Tatooine) is in northern Morocco. Not sure if we’ll be passing there. But if you recall, Jabba was killed by his slave girl, Princess Leia. In any case, you can say hello to his descendant, Jibby Jahat and his fat wife 🙂
