Documentary: “Slimy Piece of Worm-Ridden Filth – Life Inside Jabba the Hutt”

February 11, 2015 – Jabba the Hutt, perhaps the most expensive puppet to create and operate in movie-making history, has quite a story to tell from the inside looking out. In this fascinating fan-made documentary made by Jamie Benning, get the inside scoop (literally) from one of the puppeteers, Toby Philpott. He describes the tremendous amount of work and coordination it took to bring Jabba the Hutt to life.

Toby Philpott, one of three puppeteers crammed inside Jabba the Hutt, operates some of the Jabba controls in "Return of the Jedi".

The 20-minute audio interview of Toby Philpott is interlaced with various sketches and behind-the-scenes footage like you’ve never seen before. Utterly fascinating….
