    Jabba the Hutt tells Bib Fortuna: I told you not to admit him( paraphrasing) . How did Jabba know Luke was on his way to save his companions?

    He would have little birds everywhere, with communication devices. I am guessing that is how he would know. Maybe Luke didn't care about being seen landing his ship and all.

    Luke (in his hologram message to Jabba): "I seek an audience with Your Greatness to bargain for Solo’s life." Which is followed by a veiled threat of: "...enable us to avoid any unpleasant confrontations."

    Jabba knew Luke was coming because Luke told him so in the message :)

    What Angelman said above me.

    Also, at this point in time everybody in the galaxy knew Luke, Leia and Han as a team. I believe Jabba knew it was only a matter of time before Luke showed up on his doorstep, looking for his best friend.

    I love the idea that Fortuna was expected to say: "Sorry, Skywalker, I'm not allowed to let you in..." and Luke would just turn around and walk away...

    I think he anticipated that Luke set up the trap by using his droids, threepion and R2. Something along those lines, so yeah, anticipation!

    I love that the same crack security team that let some rando walk right up to Jabba with a concealed bomb, was expected to keep anyone out at all :D

    LUKE: Hello there. Can I see Jabba please?

    SCROTUM-BOT: Maybe. You’re not Luke Skywalker are you?

    LUKE: What? Me? No. No no no no. No, I’m . . . uh, I’m . . . Duke. Yeah - I’m Duke, um . . . Air . . . Strutter.

    SCROTUM-BOT: Duke . . . Airstrutter?

    LUKE: Eeeeyep.

    SCROTUM-BOT: . . . . . . oh, what a relief. Sorry man, I’m just on pretty thin ice right now after letting some Wookiee wrangling weirdo with a grenade in earlier. Alright then, Nuke-

    LUKE: Duke.

    SCROTUM-BOT: Fluke, come on in . . . . . . . . . . . whoa whoa whoa - hold up a tick!

    LUKE: Yes?

    SCROTUM-BOT: Sheesh, I almost forgot to ask. Why are you here?

    LUKE: Right, I . . . uh . . . have a gift for Jabba.

    SCROTUM-BOT: Geez, the boss sure is getting a lot of gifts lately. OH CRAP!! Is it his birthday? I think it’s his birthday! Oh man, Kook-

    LUKE: Duke.

    SCROTUM-BOT: Juke, you think you can do me a solid and say the gift is from both of us?

    LUKE: . . . sure . . . no problem.

    SCROTUM-BOT: Ah, you’re the best, man. OK, Mook, go on through . . . . . . phew, that was pretty close. I really gotta start paying more attention.

    To add to this. By the time Jabba saw the recording, the Rebellions was growing and no doubt its exploits were being told across the Galaxy.
    Even without the recording, Jabba would have know Skywalker was going to come knocking one day or another... Besides, why else would Fett stick around... for Sy Snootles? I think not. A good gangster knows who his enemies are...

    "There's a war coming, Ned...."

    After the play-time he had with his sister, how could he not expect to get his slimy ass busted?

    I think the real question is why did Jabba let Luke out of the rancor pit when he knew he had Jedi training and could have left him to starve to death in there.

    When did Jabba “let Luke out”? Luke staged a daring escape, and even then he was still sent to be executed.

    Luke saved himself from the rancor yes my question was after that why did he take Luke out of the rancor pit to be executed when he knew he had Jedi training. When he could have just left him to starve to death in the rancor pit.
