    Greedo reminds me of my viewing of Star Wars Rebels: Gathering Forces last night with my girlfriend and her daughter. Girlfriend has seen SW once, but remembered very little, and her daughter (21) has never seen it. Anyway, they noticed the Rodian cyborg in Rebels and found him cute, so I showed them a Greedo action figure which they sort of liked, mildly enthusiastic. I informed them that the original Rodian - Greedo - spoke in an alien language and required subtitles, then played the Han Vs Greedo scene from A New Hope on my home cinema system. My gal's daughter who is a student of the Japanese and Korean languages, claimed there were words in Greedo's sentences that were Far Eastern in origin, but not enough to create comprehensible phrases. I had a chuckle when Han suddenly opens fire on Greedo, which ramped up my sound system. To be honest, neither women were more than diplomatically interested in SW and their attention was drifting from Han/Greedo until the blaster-bolts sounded, which made them jump, heehee ;) A small victory in a sea of indifference.

    Actually, I remember to hear/read somewhere that Greedo speech was based on Quechua, a South-American language

    Yes, I thought that and it has been confirmed officially, but my co-viewer was sure there was some other language in the mix.

    a simplified version of Quechua, an indigenous language of the Andean region of South America.

    Was Nien Nunb's language some African dialect run in reverse? My memory is terrible on these matters.

    Kipsang Rotich was an African student who voiced Nien Nunb in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. He used his native tongue of Haya as if it were Sullustese. He was not credited in the movie.

    On Genndy Tartakovsky's Clone Wars (3rd season, Volume 2 DVD), the Nelvaanese language is based on Hungarian and Russian, since these are the nationalities of Tartakovsky's wife and himself, respectively

    Ben Burtt did a lot of the sounds & dialects in the Star Wars films. He used a lot of tricks & tips.

    George Lucas coughing & sick was later used for General Grievious. ;)
