The Sarlacc lived in the Great Pit of Carkoon in the Dune Sea on Tatooine. Only its mouth appeared above the surface of the sand. Little was known about its biology, but those unlucky enough to fall into its beak were rumoured to be digested over a thousand years. It was notably used to execute enemies of Jabba the Hutt. It was while he attempted to execute Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Chewbacca that his Sail Barge exploded, killing the Hutt.
Role in LEGO® Star Wars
The Sarlacc appears in the games Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy and in Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga in the level The Pit of Carkoon, the second level of Episode VI. It is relatively unseen, but appears in a cutscene when Boba Fett falls into its gaping maw.
