Inspired by Why are there so few familiar species in The Force Awakens?

Can someone list what intelligent species appear in both movies?

Obviously Gungans and Neimodeians are only in TPM, while humans and Hutts are in both.

But what about Aqualish and Devaronian - do we see any of them in TPM?

  • So you want two lists of species that comprehensively describe every species in each film, and another that highlights the overlaps? – 1252748 Jan 6 '16 at 6:31
  • And just these two film or prequels and sequels (not counting ep. VII). I think it would be shorter to provide species that were in both. – Zikato Jan 6 '16 at 6:34
  • fair enough - i've limited the question to just common species between the two movies... – HorusKol Jan 6 '16 at 8:42

    @ToddWilcox - yes, depending on which version you're watching... – HorusKol Jan 6 '16 at 22:08

Hutts (Special Edition only):

Hutts 1 Hutts 2


Humans 1 Humans 2


Jawas 1 Jawas 2


Rodians 1 Rodians 2

Tusken Raiders/Sand People:

Tusken Raiders 1 Tusken Raiders 2


Wookiees 1 Wookiees 2


Bith 1 Bith 2


Aqualish 1 Aqualish



I can't find any good pictures, but there are apparently Ithorians in the senate scenes of The Phantom Menace.

  • would you mind only adding ones that aren't already listed? would you mind only adding ones that aren't already listed? (which I think would just be Hutts at this point) – NKCampbell Jan 6 '16 at 23:08

    @NathanK.Campbell I decided to do all of them, with pictures as evidence, to improve on existing answers. Is that ok? – Rogue Jedi Jan 6 '16 at 23:10
  • That makes sense. My answer links to StarWars.com Databank which has the "Appearances" reference but I don't mind! Carry on! – NKCampbell Jan 6 '16 at 23:13

    @RogueJedi Oh. I guess it's possible the image could be from Ep. 1, 2, or 3. Not 100% sure. Oh well. Enjoy the Wookiee image; I added the zoom and stuff myself. :) – RedCaio Jan 7 '16 at 0:28

    @RedCaio my research turned up that the Ithorian image was from a cut scene of TPM so I wasn't going to include it either - but the StarWars.com Databank indicated that Ithorians were in TPM so I left it – NKCampbell Jan 7 '16 at 0:33

    Banthas, weren't there a couple in the pod racing scene? – CBredlow Jan 6 '16 at 23:08
  • @CBredlow Banthas aren't intelligent. – Rogue Jedi Jan 6 '16 at 23:16
  • @RogueJedi HorusKol stated in a comment that non-intelligent is ok for the list – NKCampbell Jan 6 '16 at 23:28
