Phrases

"E Chu Ta!"" is a Huttese phrase. Huttese is a language spoken by multiple characters throughout the series, most notably the Hutt crime lords like Jabba the Hutt. In translation, the phrase "E Chu Ta" is actually a statement of frustration or a mild insult, similar in its meaning to our real-world expletives. In English, it roughly translates to "blast it" or "d*mn it."

This phrase is most famously used by the droid C-3PO in "Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back." In a confrontation with another Protocol Droid, C-3PO utters "E Chu Ta" as a sign of his irritation and surprise. This use of Huttese, among other fictional languages, adds depth to Star Wars' intricate world-building and local color.
