fun fact of the day

I came across this while reading about the production of Star Wars (Episode IV).

The language spoken by the Jawas (the hooded aliens of Tatooine) was created by recording speakers of the African Zulu language and electronically speeding it up. The language spoken by Greedo, the green alien killed by Han Solo, is the Peruvian language Quechua played backwards.

EDIT:

In The Return of the Jedi, "several Ewok lines are in the Filipino (Tagalog) language. Most Ewok lines, however, were inspired by the Kalmuck language, spoken by nomadic tribes living in Central China."
