The Secrets of Bobbajo

bobbajoThe first ever character that we’ve seen form The Force Awakens was this weird but cool looking creature called Bobbajo, during the first Force for Change video back in 2014. Now EW takes a closer look at the creature, explaining how exactly the puppet works, and who exactly is Bobbajo.



From Entertainment Weekly:



I am not a huge toy fan, but this little fella will look incredible as an action figure. I really hope they do one. Brilliant design.

    I bet Bobbajo knows Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes. I’m thinking there is possibility of a Quick Stop on Jakku.

    Is that how it’s pronounced. I always pronounced like “bob-aah-ho”

    This guy is my favourite new creature because he reminds me of a Jim Henson creation. You can imagine him in Labyrinth.

      Bet someone’s written slash-fic about him and the one in that film.

    Haha! It’s funny how much this comment section is dying in the last few days due to people not wanting to be spoiled. I think it’s kind of futile seeing as how we still don’t know about huge chunks of the film yet and we are less than a week away. I know we’ll get some token major revelation stuff in the next few days or so but clearly not everything.

      We know that Rey gets a lightsaber and that Snoke is 70% confirmed to be Darth Plagueis. That’s not everything, but it’s certainly something major.

        Rey’s not surprising to anyone who has been on this site more than a week. Especially since she’s the star of the film.

        As for Plagueis, It’s not him because he’s a Munn and they said Snoke is a new species.

        • December 13, 2015 at 1:59 am

          A species that we haven’t seen in the films before, actually. Other than a brief shot of a Muun in Attack of the Clones, that holds true. We’ll just have to wait and see.

          • December 13, 2015 at 7:50 am

            We did see him though and in III too I think. The only way this theory holds any water is if they change Plagueis’s species but Lucas was pretty adament about him being a Munn for some reason.

            Snoke supposdly looks like a Munn but Kylo looks a lot like Revan too. I remember seeing some dignitaries concept art from Jedi that looked like a Munn too which is probably where the species came from and possibly Snoke since they seem to be using a lot of unused McQuarrie ideas.

    I dont understand how so many people thought the prequels were “racist” when you got this monstrosity lugging about…Looks “racist” to me…no more than the Nemoidians were.
