Why are the Hutts so powerful? The origin of the Star Wars clan explored

Bounty hunter, Boba Fett, may have found his antagonists for the spinoff series, Boba Fett’s Book of Disney Plus, in The Hutt Twins, and we explain why the Hutts are so powerful by exploring their origin.

The Star Wars spin-off takes place directly after the events of season 2 of Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian and follows the bounty hunter (Temuera Morrison) and his ally, Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen), as they claim territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt.

Boba Fett’s book features the Hutt twins

Episode 2 of Boba Fett’s Book, titled “The Tribes of Tatooine”, saw Boba travel to Mos Espa to speak with the mayor and Madame Garsa.

Fans were then introduced to the twin Hutt siblings, who appear in the episode as anonymous members of the Hutt clan but noted as cousins ​​of Jabba the Hutt.

Black Krrsantan was also featured alongside them, as the twins reaffirmed Hutt Law while taking control of Jabba’s previous territory.

Why are the Hutts so powerful?

The Hutt Clan, also known as the Hutt Cartel or Hutt Families, is most likely the master of organized crime in the Star Wars universe.

Ruled by the Grand Hutt Council, the Hutt clan had two main sub-clans (or kajidic): the Desilijic Tiure clan led by Jabba the Hutt and the Besadii clan led by Arok.

The clan held great power during the Old Republic era and the Imperial era through its cooperation with the Imperial forces. However, Darth Vader managed to exterminate all members of the Hutt Grand Council except Jabba during the Late Era, as the Empire wanted to overtake their trade.

The clan essentially built their own empire through wealth, intimidation, and connections with the bounty hunters and the Imperial.

As discussed on the Star Wars subreddit, fans also believe the Hutts are so powerful due to their strong physicality and ability to bribe their way to the top.

The clan continues to prevail, as seen in The Book of Boba Fett, even though their leader, Jabba the Hutt, is long gone.

Who killed Jabba the Hutt and how did he die?

Jabba the Hutt was killed by Princess Leia Organa in Return of the Jedi.

When Jabba and his thugs traveled to Carkoon’s Great Pit on his sailing barge, Luke Skywalker ended up attacking Jabba’s thugs – while the Jedi attempted to save Han and Leia.

As Leia was Jabba’s prisoner at the time, she wrapped the chain that bound her to him around the crime lord’s neck and killed him during Luke’s strike.

Jabba’s sailing barge ended up crashing next to the Sarlacc Pitt and his body was desecrated in the explosion.

The leader’s death also occurred as Boba Fett became trapped in the Sarlacc Pitt – an event that was eventually explored during Episode 1 of The Book of Boba Fett.
