Star Wars hard-cores will know John Coppinger as the sculptor of “Jabba the Hutt”, and Toby Philpott as one of the 8 operators who manipulated the complex animatronic puppet. John and Toby help us understand how they brought the ruthless gangster to life, what each team member was responsible for managing, and how the directors gave direction to the 15′ 6″ “Jabba” on the set. Known to some by his full name of Jabba Desilijic Tiure. “Jabba” was representative of corruption, and had an affinity for gambling, torture, and slave girls. One-time slave girl, Pricess Leia Organa, would become his demise in “Return of the Jedi” (circa 1983).
