Here's What It Was Like Inside Jabba The Hutt

Jabba the Hutt fans, have we got a geekout for you.

"Filmumentary" maker Jamie Benning interviewed Jabba puppeteer Toby Philpott over Skype about his work inside the gelatinous villain of "Return of the Jedi." Then Benning combined Philpott's words with behind-the-scenes footage to make the mini-documentary "Slimy Piece Of Worm-Ridden Filth: Life Inside Jabba The Hutt."

Getting the slug-like bad guy to move and express himself was no easy task in early 1980s animatronics, sometimes requiring multiple men inside the massive puppet, as the video recalls.

But whenever Jabba filled the screen, the effort clearly was worth it.
