Star Wars original trilogy – aliens everywhere you look

Think there aren’t many aliens in the original Star Wars trilogy?

It’s an easy mistake to make since it’s the human beings who are front and centre most of the time; but as this brilliantly-playful video from Star Wars Kids make informatively-plain, there are way more aliens in the three films that you might remember.

The best part is that they have some pretty cool names, evidence that George Lucas and the writers got their imaginations fired up in a big way and went for poetically-cool rather than just plain prosaic.

So wade on in and discover the plethora of alien species that lurk far beyond the most obvious scene at the Mos Eisley cantina and glory in the well-named diversity of a galaxy far, far away.
