6. Rotta the Hutt

While Jabba the Hutt is long dead, and it appeared as though Bib Fortuna was heading the Hutt crime family before being killed by Boba (who appears to have taken his place), there may still be other Hutts out there to challenge Fett.

One of the Hutt’s in question who may be alive to challenge Boba in an attempt to reclaim Jabba’s palace and the role as head of the crime family is Jabba’s son, Rotta the Hutt.

Rotta was first introduced in The Clone Wars animated movie as a young child who was kidnapped from Jabba before being rescued and returned to him by Ashoka Tano.

That was several decades earlier, so while Rotta was just a child then, depending on how his species ages and if he is still alive, he could very well be a grown adult and could hypothetically be reintroduced as an adversary for Fett.

For all we know, Fortuna may have only been heading the Hutt Family until Rotta came of age to take over himself, And while Fett claimed the throne, he may not have killed the actual head of the family.

The bottom line is, bringing back Rotta in a more prominent role could be an interesting way for the series to go, and feuding crime families is a new kind of story we’ve yet to see in Star Wars in a live-action form.
