Re: More Star Wars films announced

Yep. And it works brilliantly to this day, big giant praying mantis drinking at the bar notwithstanding. One of the coolest and most atmospheric scenes in the entire history of sci-fi/fantasy cinema.

For the record, the praying mantis alien in the Cantina was a female Yam'rii named "Kitik Keed'kak" and Hasbro has released her as an action figure not once, but twice over the last nine years. Although the prop costume in the film was green the action figure and backstory for the character depict her as a brownish insectoid life form.
