Top 10 PT Creatures According To Me

Top 10 PT (movie) creatures according to me:

There are so many creatures created for the just the prequel saga alone, not counting the Clone Wars. Terryl Whitlach designed a lot of them for TPM and there were plenty more created for AOTC and ROTS. Picking just 10 is tough!

10. Gualaar

A what? These were the unicorn-like creatures used in Padmé’s funeral scene in ROTS. This and similar equine type creatures were created as royal horses for TPM but these were the most visible and weren’t used until Episode III. Beautiful and regal.

9. Shaak

I like big butts and I cannot lie…

Seriously though, these were created for TPM and supposedly seen in one shot (I can’t think of what point in the movie) but were prominently featured in AOTC during Anakin and Padmé’s picnic romp.

8. Sando aqua monster

There’s always a bigger fish.

7. Eopie

Tatooine’s answer to camels.  And like camels they poop all over the place and cut the cheese a lot.

6. Aiwah

Flying whales!

5. Nuna

They’re little and barely noticeable but one of those creatures that add detail and life to the GFFA.

4. Acklay

One big scary grasshopper.

3. Reek

This bull-like horned lizard makes for great transportation once you’ve calmed it down with the Force.

2. Nexu

Soft nexu warm nexu little ball of fur…

1. Boga

Fast, fiercely loyal (Obi-Wan’s boga saved his life after all), cool-looking, able to climb anywhere, and I love its call.

    I always liked the Reek, it has a cool lizard-rhinovirus appearance.

    Oh, and yes, there is always a bigger fish ;D

    The only creature I don’t recognize from the PT is the Nuna. I’d have to say my favorite creature is the Eopie. They’re not only present in the movies, but also in books written after the movies came out.

  3. Noah Evans (The Artist) Says:

    In addition, although weird creatures, The Shaak were a good choice of creature for the Anidala scene in Star Wars 2

    (also, didn’t see that description coming :P)

  4. Adam D. Bram (The Nilbog) Says:

    Hate to be “that guy”, but I believe Boga was the name of the individual. The species I think is called a Veractyl or Dragonmount.

    Then again, not sure if that was changed after the fact or just not explained well until later works.

  5. Edward Diego Says:


    You can see the Shaaks in TPM when the trade federation tanks approach the gungan army on the peak of the big grass hill on the right side. Hard to see, but they are there.

  6. hansolo1138 Says:

    Nice! The veractyl, or Boga, is my favorite PT creature too!

  7. Jacobesico Says:

    Forget Anakin falling to the dark side!

    The most tragic event in Revenge of the Sith is Boga’s death. It gets me every time. 😦

  8. LadyJediScientist Says:

    Great list! One of the many things I love about the Prequels is the wide variety of wildlife & creatures present in the films. I adore Terryl Whitlatch’s book & I really wish there were two more volumes for Episodes 2 & 3😫

  9. jayoungr Says:

    Still laughing at the Nexu description!

  10. Rebel Je'Daii (@SWForce4EU) Says:

    🙂 I’ve got that book with Star Wars creatures with a cover like dewback hide! I love the art in it.
    Where did you get the pic of Gualaar? That almost looks like a china model of it or something! It’s very cool.
