Star Wars reveals what Jawas look like under their hoods and we don't like it

Star Wars reveals what Jawas look like under their hoods and we don't like it

Finally, the truth

Star Wars fans still don’t fully know what a Jawa looks like underneath its hood, but they know it can’t be good.

The ever-expanding Star Wars universe isn’t short of its mysteries, like what species do Yoda and Grogu belong to, and unfortunately those mysteries are very rarely answered.

Check out our interview with the developers of Star Wars Outlaws below.

So it’s up to fans to take what pieces we do have and try to fit them together in any way they can, even if the picture at the end is the furthest thing from the truth.

One mystery that's actually bothered me for a few years is what a Jawa looks like underneath its hood, and like most Star Wars mysteries, fans have their theories.

If you don’t recall what a Jawa is, they’re the little guys with brown cloaks and glowing eyes. They’re mostly seen on Tatooine and are junkers, grabbing whatever bits and pieces they can get their grubby little hands on and selling it for a profit.

They’re the ones who sold R2-D2 and C-3PO to Luke Skywalker and his uncle Owen, and they’ve also given Din Djarin a run for his money when they stripped the Razor Crest of its parts.

While they’ve never had their faces shown, concept art from artist Ralph McQuarrie, who worked on the original trilogy, seems to suggest they have normal human-like faces with fancy goggles and other facial accessories, which explains the glowing eyes.

Other interpretations show them as little ghoul creatures with charred-looking skin, but if we’re going to pick a “canon” look, the concept art is probably it.

The Jawas tread a fine line between cute and creepy, and the allusions to what they really look like isn’t doing the little desert goblins any favours.
