Star Wars Moment 2 by VegasMike Star Wars Moment 2 by VegasMike
This image is my submission for the ILM Art Department Star Wars Challenge. The object was to create a new story moment using the original designs from Star Wars IV-VI. My new story moment was:  Leia has come to Jabba's palace to rescue Han. When negotiations fail she finds herself face to face with the Rancor. After evading his moves she manages to climb up his back. She places her hand upon the Rancor's head and uses the force to take control of the Rancor's mind. The Rancor destroys the cage leading to Jabba's throne room and grabs him from his toppling throne. The Rancor lets out a roar at his former master and then bites his head off, throwing the body to the floor. Leia then uses the Rancor to make her escape.

This is utterly awesome and I wish it had been what happened in the movie!

That's poetic justice! Jabba gets destroyed by his own pet!
If anybody remembers the Redwall Abbey series, in one of the books, (Mariel of Redwall) the villain meets his end by way of his own pet as well!

If you a looking for a different perspective on the Rancor, you might want to check out this short story. starwars.wikia.com/wiki/A_Boy_…
The Rancor keeper crying after it gets killed is played for laughs in the movie. But the background story of that scene is heartbreaking,

This feels especially like poetic justice if you throw how Jabba treated the Rancor in Legends.

Beautiful :love:
The Rancor should not only bite Jabbas head off, but after throwing the remains to the ground, he should show his contempt to his cruel former master, by trampleing what is left, to a pulp, so that nothing remains of this vile creature.

No. Most certanly not. For Jabba, the Rancor was a mere tool, something to attract paying spectrators. If the Rancor had any friend inside the palace, it was Malakili, who planned to set the Rancor free, as soon as he heard, Jabba planed to let it fight a Krayt Dragon. A battle the Rancor would have lost. Unfortunately, Luke Skywalker came, before the plan could come into effect

Okay this is cool. For some reason I could see the Rancor swallowing old Jaba whole. Kind of like watching a bird swallowing a bird. Good work

Nice.  I always thought having a huge cannibalistic creature underneath you was probably a bad idea.  It's unfortunate that the Rancor did not get its revenge nor did it escape Jabba's palace.  I would have liked Oola to be the one to see Jabba get eaten.  It is a more karmic death than Leia dealing the killer blow.

I Think they should feed that evil lump of fat to the Sarlacc instead-but it would probably choke on him.
