The sarlacc is a fictional creature in George Lucas's science fiction saga Star Wars. It first appeared in the film Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983) as a multi-tentacled alien beast whose immense, gaping mouth is lined with several rows of sharp teeth. In the original Return of the Jedi, the sarlacc is simply a barbed hole in the desert sand which characters fall into and are consumed; some are pulled into the sarlacc's mouth by its tentacles. Lucas changed the sarlacc's appearance in the 1997 Special Edition of the film by adding computer-generated tentacles and beak that emerge from the opened mouth. Besides Return of the Jedi, the creature and others like it are featured in Star Wars literature. Like other aspects of Star Wars, the sarlacc became a part of popular culture. The creature was incorporated into the merchandising campaign that accompanied the release of Return of the Jedi. It is the subject of analysis and humor in works of literature unassociated with Star Wars.
