In The Force Awakens, Han refers to the members of Kanjiclub as "little freaks." This insult doesn't really make sense, given how they ultimately appear in the film.

Were they at one point in the film's production intended to be aliens?

    I don't have an answer to the question of the production's intention, but for just the question of word use, well, human-folk have been using "freak" to insult human-folk for a very long time – Megha Jun 28 '18 at 0:31

    I'm unsure why freak has to mean visually appalling, or alien. It could simply be because of their typically unusual behaviour. – Edlothiad Jun 28 '18 at 5:57

    @Edlothiad Describing them as "little" is what's confusing me more. – Rogue Jedi Jun 28 '18 at 17:35
  • Yes, I don't think I remember any "little" persons running around the space ship, only more or less normal sized persons. – M. A. Golding Jun 28 '18 at 20:09
