THE HUTT CONNECTION
Reddit user 4LOM posted that Star Wars: Episode IX will be introducing a new Hutt crime lord. Continuing J.J. Abrams’ tradition of characters conveniently running into each other, the new Hutt will be Jabba’s son Rotta.
Rotta first appeared in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars film, nicknamed by Ahsoka Tano as “Stinky.” He was kidnapped as a baby during the Clone Wars to discredit the Jedi Order and cause the downfall of Jabba. The Jedi send Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, and a team of clone troopers to rescue the baby Hutt.
