Tauntauns are creatures in the Star Wars saga. They appear in Disney Infinity: 3.0 Edition as mounts. They were first seen on the box art for Disney Infinity 3.0, and were later seen being ridden by Han Solo in the official reveal trailer for the game.

Star Wars

Tauntauns appear in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. Indigenous to the planet Hoth, they are used by the Rebel Alliance on the planet to navigate its snowy terrain that most of their vehicles cannot traverse. Luke Skywalker and Han Solo are seen riding the creatures in the beginning of the film. Luke is riding one when he is attacked by the Wampa snow creature. The monster kills Luke's tauntaun and takes it and Luke back to its home in a snowy cave. It then eats the tauntaun, with the intention of making Luke his next victim. When Luke does not return to base at his scheduled time that night, Han takes a tauntaun out in the snow to rescue him. He finds Luke, who has escaped the wampa's clutches, but his tauntaun dies from overexposure to the cold. Freezing and with no way to return to base, Han takes Luke's lightsaber and cuts open the stomach of his dead tauntaun to give his friend a warm place to sleep for the night. In the morning, a group of Rebels in Snowspeeders find them and transport them back safely to base.

Disney Infinity 3.0

Tauntauns will appear in the game as rideable mounts. They have been seen in promotional media on their native planet of Hoth, but also on Tatooine. There have also been seen baby tauntauns, which seem to function as critters. Additionally, there seem to be Tauntaun heads mounted on the wall inside Jabba's Palace.


  • The Tauntaun is the first mount in the games to have two legs.
