The Mandalorian's baby Yoda has captured the public's heart, so one fan tried to visualized what a young Jabba the Hutt could look like and the result isn't as adorable as one would hope it would be. Lucasfilm and Disney+ scored an instant hit with the very first Star Wars live-action show created by Jon Favreau and starring Pedro Pascal's Dyn Jarren. In just three episodes, people have been liking where the narrative is going thus far, and of course, everyone's fawning over the adorable Force-sensitive infant from the same species as Jedi Master Yoda who remains unnamed.
Known mostly for his nefarious ways, particularly holding Leia (Carrie Fisher) as his slave in Return of the Jedi, Jabba the Hutt is one of the many memorable characters from the Star Wars universe. One artist, however, attempts to make him more cute the same way The Mandalorian did with their baby Yoda, but it's safe to assume that given the end result, Lucasfilm won't be planning on a Jabba backstory any time soon.
Courtesy of digital artist Saby Menyhei is a mock-up artwork on what an infant Jabba the Hutt could actually look like. Sadly, it doesn't look adorable the way The Mandalorian was able to do with baby Yoda, although it's worth noting that some find him cute in the comments section of the ARTSTATION post.
Actually, Star Wars has already shown fans what an infant Jabba looks like in The Clone Wars movie from 2008. In the animated film directed by Dave Filoni (who also directed The Mandalorian's premiere episode), Jedi Master Yoda tasked Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and his new Padawan, Ahsoka Tano to retrieve Jabba's kidnapped son. From there, it became a race to the child as Count Dooku (who was behind the abduction all along) also wanted to be the one to "save" the kid so as to get on the crime lord's good side in order to get his support for the Separatists. While the infant isn't necessarily Jabba, it did bear resemblance to Menyhei's creation.
Thanks to the emergence in popularity of baby Yoda The Mandalorian, the Star Wars fandom is starting to get more interested in the franchise's other creatures and what they can possibly look like during their youth. And considering the plethora of beings that George Lucas created for this universe, there's no scarcity when it comes to the possibilities posed by the arrival of an infant Yoda.
