Quechua in Star War’s languages

Date: March / 19 / 2010 + Comments: 0

Probably when George Lucas filmed Star Wars he couldn’t afford the time and the money to create different alien languages, so he took a shortcut and took native languages from around the world to form the languages for his new races. Between this languages, the Quechua and Aymara, native from the Incas of South America was used to conform the Huttese.

The translation has no sense, George Lucas just took words in a random order, considering only its sound and not its meaning.

When Greedo talks to Han Solo (Episode IV) in the second 00:18 Greedo says: Chaskañawi, which means, messy eyelashes.

Jabba the Hutt, Watto, Sebulba, and the Max Rebo Band also talks some Quechua (Huttese).

Jabba the Hutt is speaking Quechua in this scene:

The Max Rebo Band singing Jedi Rocks (Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi. ):

In the second 00:45 the singer Lapti Nek says Imata Munanki, which in Quechua translates to: what do you want?

And FYI the Ewoks speak in Tibetan (Languages in Star Wars)
