Elephants in Disguise: The Creation of The Bantha

All these years and I had no idea that the Bantha's from Star Wars were actually Elephants in costume. I figured they were giant muppets or something?


  1. Well, I'll be damned...that's news to me, too! "Fodder" for thought.
    (This epiphany now has me wondering what sort of critter they conscripted and modified to play the Rancor. Oooh, and the Sarlacc!)

  2. I saw a special of behind the scenes making of Star Wars ( Late 70's made for TV...)... It showed footage of this... Never seen any stills ....till now...
