You might be asking, “Who?” Well, if you’ve seen Return of the Jedi, then you’ve absolutely been treated to the musical stylings of this peculiar character. The lead singer for the Max Rebo Band, Snootles has always wanted to make it big (even if her grating screeches kept her from true stardom).
If nothing else, Snootles is a character who gets far more screen time than she deserves. We will admit, though, that she does do a good job doing the Hutt clan’s dirty work. Against our low expectations, she murders Ziro the Hutt in cold blood (for Jabba) and actually becomes a semi-important part of the criminal underworld.
And, to make her situation even sweeter, the Jedi arrive soon after and blame Cad Bane for the crime (not a terrible assumption, to be honest). Who would’ve thought? She’s exhausting to watch and hopelessly annoying. And that voice. Ugh. It’s absolutely unbearable.
So yes, we didn’t ask for more Snootles at all but we aren’t entirely sorry she comes back to grace Star Wars canon. Let’s just keep her in tertiary character territory, yeah? We don’t need any more of her.
Hard pass on a Sy Snootles origin series.
