Significant and popular locations in the uncanonical stories are finally listed under the collective term Legends .

Basics about the Star Wars galaxy

The Star Wars galaxy has a diameter of around 100,000 light years and consists of over 400 billion stars , of which around 3.2 million are habitable planetary systems . It is inhabited by innumerable intelligent species.

The galaxy is "onion-shell-shaped" divided into several areas. Starting from the center of the galaxy, they spread out in a ring to the edge of the galaxy. The innermost region is the so-called deep core, the outermost regions are the Unknown Regions and the Wild Space.

Deep core

The innermost region is the deep core. At its center (similar to real galaxies such as the Milky Way ) is a supermassive black hole . Because of the strong gravitational distortion of hyperspace , this region has long been considered inaccessible. It was not until the time of the galactic empire that Palpatine's hyperspace pathways were found as part of the research and exploitation program.

Core worlds

The core worlds are the most densely populated area in the galaxy and are home to the richest and most influential planets in the galaxy. They form the end of numerous important trade routes and are the cultural, political, financial, technological and scientific center of the galaxy. Here the Galactic Republic was founded and the original planet of the humans is also assumed to be in the core systems.

Major planets: Coruscant , Corellia , Kuat , Hosnian Prime


The region known as the Colonies is home to the planets that were first colonized after the core worlds. Some of them are part of important trade routes and are therefore very wealthy.

Major planets: Carida , Cato Neimoidia

Inner edge

After their colonization, this region was known only as "The Edge" for a long time, as it represented the outer limit of the known galaxy at that time. When the Galactic Republic then expanded beyond this "edge", this designation no longer made sense, but out of respect for the old name it was only specified to "inner edge".

Major planets: Onderon , Jakku

Expansion region

The expansion region is rich in raw materials. There are only a few planets in this region, but these are important because of their exports to the whole galaxy. This area is also of strategic importance as it represents the direct connection from the interior to the central edge.

Middle margin

Most of the planets in the Middle Rim are populated by natives or colonists who use most of their world for themselves. Others are only important because of their natural resources or are ignored. The rather large distance to the core caused less attention to be paid to these stars. For many who traveled towards the outer edge, the region was considered the last civilized area. However, it also struggled with the fringes of piracy that reigned in the Outer Rim.

Major planets: Naboo , Kashyyyk , Takodana , Jedha

Outer edge

The Outer Rim is the largest region in the known galaxy. For a long time, the Outer Rim was considered a legendary region full of horrors that no one went to voluntarily. Criminal organizations such as the Hutten clan, syndicates, and slave traders ruled much of this region. Even after colonizing numerous planets of the Outer Rim, the Galactic Republic had little influence here, so lawlessness often prevailed. B. slavery on many worlds as normal. The Empire had built the Death Star, among other things, to control the Outer Rim.

Major planets: Mon Cala , Kessel , Sullust , Geonosis , Mustafar , Tatooine , Savareen

Unknown regions

The unknown regions are located in the western part of the galaxy, they are mapped, but largely undiscovered. Because of the strong gravitational distortions , solar storms and other obstacles, they do not allow flight with hyperdrive.

Major planets: Ilum , Starkiller base (place of origin)

Wild space

The “wild space” borders the unknown regions, the only known region that is not really used by anyone. For the most part, it lies outside of the known galaxy map and is therefore neither mapped, nor explored, nor inhabited. However, there are a few planets that have been colonized by intelligent species.


The Star Wars canon includes the movies, the series The Clone Wars and Rebels as well as all other Star Wars media that have been released and newly published since April 2014 (with a few exceptions) .

As a result, Luke became one with the Force on Ahch-To, whom he had not left since his arrival, and died. A year later, after her duel against Kylo Ren , Rey fled again to Ahch-To, only to go into exile after her failure, as did her master Skywalker.

Daytime temperatures rarely exceed freezing point, even in the more moderate equatorial zones, and values ​​well below are not uncommon. A third of Hoth consists of open ocean, the rest of either ice-covered continents or sea under thick ice. The planet's mighty glaciers are criss-crossed with caves and crystalline geysers break through the cold surface.

The rebel alliance had set up a base on the ice planet and secured the area with echo bases and sensors. In a battle this base was destroyed by the Empire.

The entrance to the caves was an ancient, hidden Jedi temple, which the young people used as a meeting place and meditation place before they went on the sacred search for the crystals.

After the end of the Clone Wars, the Galactic Empire became aware of Ilum, whose extensive cyber crystal deposits were of great value for the construction of the Death Star super laser. The Empire began a massive mining of the crystals, which over time greatly changed the surface of the planet.

A few years after the fall of the imperial regime, Ilum was used as a secret First Order base of operations. This accessed the existing quantities of cyber crystals with which the ice planet was transformed into a mobile super weapon with devastating destructive power: the Starkiller base .

Wadi Rum ( Jordan ), setting for Jedha.

Jedha is a remote desert world that is permanently winter. The planet was a destination for pilgrims from across the galaxy in search of spiritual guidance from the Force. For many religions, including the Jedi, Jedha City in particular was a holy place. The researchers' opinions on Jedha differ. Some believe that the name of the Jedi comes from the name of the planet, others believe that it is exactly the other way around. It is agreed, however, that the history of Jedha and that of the Jedi was closely linked.

The Galactic Empire took over the planet and had the cyber crystals found there removed to guarantee the energy for the Death Star's main weapon. Some rebels under Saw Gerrera involved Imperial occupation forces in a skirmish, but were killed along with their base after a trial use of the Death Star. This attack severely damaged the entire planet, even if it remained intact.

The few islands were originally inhabited by the Mon Calamari , the seas by the Quarren . However, both species are able to live both underwater and in an oxygen-containing atmosphere. With the help of the quars, the calamari managed to build huge floating cities. The special thing about it was their architecture, because the buildings and ships of Mon Calamaris were modeled on marine animals and had no corners or edges.

During the era of the Empire, the Mon Cala shipyards became the main supplier of capital ships to the Rebellion and later the New Republic.

The Etna volcano in Italy (here 2011).

Mustafar is a volcanic planet on which Obi-Wan Kenobi and his former student Anakin Skywalker , who by then already had his new name Darth Vader , fought the all-important final battle of Revenge of the Sith . Vader lost this and survived only badly wounded, whereupon he received his life-sustaining, feared appearance. Years later, he built his personal castle on the site of his greatest defeat, which served as his headquarters. In 35 NSY, Kylo Ren found one of two Sith pathfinders near the ruins of Vader's castle.

The active volcano Etna erupted during filming, which is why George Lucas sent a film team to take external views that could later be inserted into the background of the film scenes.

The "wet farm"

Tatooine is an Outer Rim desert planet orbiting a pair of twin suns (Tatoo 1 and 2). Away from important trade routes on the edge of the Outer Rim Territory, it is a refuge for smugglers, criminals and people who don't want to be found. Otherwise, apart from wet farms, it doesn't have much to see. In addition to the hot desert, there are other great dangers on Tatooine: The sand people repeatedly carry out raids.

Filming location of Mos Espa, hometown of Anakin Skywalker, northwest of the city of Tozeur in Tunisia .
Death Valley

Tatooine was the home planet of Anakin Skywalker and his son Luke Skywalker . Indigenous forms of life were the Tusken robbers and the great bantas. The bantas were often used as pack animals and mounts by the Tusken. Another intelligent species were the Jawas. Jawas are mostly scrap dealers and lived nomadically in their large sand crawler vehicles.

Prior to the Empire, Qui-Gon Jinn , Obi-Wan Kenobi , the Queen of Naboo, Padmé Amidala and their entourage had to make an emergency landing on Tatooine because their hyperspace engines were damaged. They met the young Anakin Skywalker, a slave whom they could buy free by winning the pod race and leave the planet with him. Anakin later returned to Tatooine as a Jedi in search of his mother, Shmi Skywalker , who had to remain on the planet as a slave. However, Anakin learned that Shmi was kidnapped by Tusken robbers and taken to their camp. He saw his mother only briefly before she died of exhaustion. It was a crucial moment on Anakin's journey to the dark side.

Mos Eisley was one of the larger cities of Tatooine and housed one of Tatooine's main spaceports . She starred in Star Wars and Return of the Jedi . Luke Skywalker, the droids and Obi-Wan Kenobi first met Chewbacca and Han Solo in the local bar, Chalmun's Cantina , which was home to all kinds of species like Ithorians, Duros and Aqualish .

Many years later, after defeating the First Order and the Emperor, the Jedi student Rey buried the Skywalker twins 'lightsabers in the sand near Owen Lars' former wet farm.

The planet has appeared in six Star Wars films so far . Most of the recordings were made in Tunisia. The name comes from the local Berber town of Tataouine . Other locations were Death Valley National Park and the Buttercup Valley of the Yuma Desert in the USA. Tatooine is the nickname of the exoplanet Kepler-16b .

Utapau is a planet in the Outer Rim that was neutral at the time of the Clone Wars, so it belonged neither to the Republic nor to the Separatists. It is covered by barren rocky landscapes with only very little vegetation, which are repeatedly broken through by huge holes, the gullet holes . These holes extend hundreds of meters deep into the subterranean ocean that encompasses the entire planet. In these holes are cities that were built on the rock walls, such as the capital Pau City. The planet is inhabited by the Pau, large, long-lived humanoids, the Utai, smaller creatures that do not have such a long life, and many birds and reptiles, such as the dragon horses. On one of these, Obi-Wan Kenobi pursued General Grievous , who had conquered the planet before the attack on Coruscant and was using it as the headquarters for the separatists. It was here that he was finally killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi while trying to escape and after sending the separatist leadership into the Mustafar system. Utapau was finally liberated by the republic.

The term Advanced universe (Engl. Expanded Universe ) were in Star Wars all licensed -Context Star Wars passed materials outside the movies. The expanded universe includes books, comic books, games, and other media that expand the stories told in the films. The expansion of the Star Wars universe began in 1978. With the takeover of the Star Wars brand by Disney in 2012, Disney announced that the formerly expanded universe was no longer part of the official canon and would continue to exist independently under the collective name of Legends . This section lists places that fall under this collective term. Some of the planets mentioned here already exist in the current canon, but have not yet achieved sufficient relevance through mere mentioning in the new media and are therefore initially listed here.


Duro is a core world on the Corellian trade route. The atmosphere of this planet was highly toxic, almost nothing grew on the surface and only a few robust insects lived on it. The inhabitants of the planet, the duros, lived in orbital cities above the poisonous sulfur clouds; the capital is Bbuburru City. During the Yuuzhan Vong War, some 20 years after the fall of the empire, the surface was home to many of Selcore's refugee settlements; the Gateway main settlement was headed by Leia Organa Solo.

Korriban is a world covered with arid deserts and mountains and the home planet of the Sith. It is on the edge of the old Sith Empire. After the first Jedi Civil War, which took place many millennia before the events of Knights of the Old Republic, the renegade Jedi, under the leadership of Xendor, fled to Korriban and named their faith after the primitive inhabitants, the Sith, of whom they looked like gods were worshiped. Korriban is home to many of the most dangerous and aggressive beasts in the galaxy. They are said to have been corrupted by the dark power inherent in Korriban. One of them was the tuk'ata, a wolf-like animal whose power immunity makes it a serious opponent. Tuk'ata live in packs and never attack alone. They are also drawn to power. The Valley of the Dark Lords, at the end of which there was a Sith Academy at 4000 VSY, was the burial place of the four greatest Sith Lords of Korriban: Naga Sadow, Marka Ragnos, Ajunta Pall and Tulak Hord. Naga Sadow's grave contained part of the starforge's site plan. It was said that on his return Darth Revan found Ajunta Pall's grave and met his ghost there, from whom he received the old sword from Ajunta Pall's grave. At the time of Darth Revan the academy was directed by Master Uthar Wynn. Almost 3000 years later, in the time of Darth Bane, there were many new academies in place of the old Sith Academy above the Valley of the Dark Lords, which were located in old Sith temples. Korriban's academies then trained the best of the Sith. Korriban was only sparsely populated at all times, as the planet was firstly very dangerous and secondly completely sterile. The only settlement was Dreshdae, an outpost of the Czerka Corporation.

Manaan is a planet almost completely covered by water that was on the edge of the Republic without belonging to it. Manaan was the hometown of the Selkath, an amphibious form of life that communicated with a language of slurping sounds that was difficult for others to understand. Manaan was the only known planet where the powerful medicine Kolto could be mined. It was the most powerful cure in the galaxy and was both anti-inflammatory and highly wound healing. Kolto was the substance that was in the tanks in which the injured were treated to regenerate. Later it was replaced by the stronger substance Bacta that in Episode V appears.

Manaan only had one city, Ahto City , which was because the Selkath lived underwater. Ahto therefore mainly served as a station for refining and selling the Kolto. Although the Republic and the Sith Empire fought for Manaan in the war described in " Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic ", it remained strictly neutral, even if more and more voices were voiced for the Sith to be despised.
