Greedo (or Greedo the Young) is a fictional character from the Star Wars universe. He is portrayed by Paul Blake in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.


Star Wars: A New Hope[edit]

Greedo appears in Star Wars as a Rodian bounty hunter working for Jabba the Hutt. Jabba hires him to capture Han Solo, who lost the Hutt's cargo during a smuggling assignment. Greedo tracks his target to the Mos Eisley Cantina on Tatooine, where Han kills him with a concealed blaster.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars[edit]

Greedo also appears in the 2010 Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode "Sphere of Influence". In this series, set 20 years before A New Hope, Greedo is hired by the Trade Federation to kidnap Baron Papanoida's daughters, Che Amanwe and Chi Eekway. He is ultimately foiled by Ahsoka Tano.


Paul Blake played Greedo during the main shooting, while an articulated head was built afterward and used by Maria De Aragon for pick-up shots. Linguist Larry Ward voiced Greedo in Star Wars: A New Hope, with Tom Kenny providing the voice in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series.
