Granted, some of them are obvious (Wookiees, humans, etc), but what about all of the others? Greedo's race for example, and even the ones that are only shown but never speak.

    It does vary.

    Which one? Original theatrical, home video, special edition, 3D? I'm sure there's some variances.

Here's a running list of the species seen in the Cantina as of the 2019 4K edition of A New Hope. (This excludes species seen in Chalmun's cantina in other works, such as The Mandalorian.)

This adds up to 33 species, although releases starting at the 1997 special edition replace shots of Lak Sivrak with the new characters Ketwol and Melas, so within a single edition of the film, only 31 or 32 species are seen.

  • I seem to recall (maybe in a statement by George Lucas) that the people in the galaxy far away aren't actually human?

    @DannyMcG They're human according to C-3PO: "Don't worry about Master Luke. I'm sure he'll be all right. He's quite clever, you know... for a human being."

    @Valorum To be fair, so did Greedo.

    @DannyMcG - Asked and answered here. In short, humans in the Star Wars universe are anatomically identical to Earth humans, but unrelated.
