Can-cell were a species of flying insect found of a number of planets across the galaxy, including Kashyyyk,[1] Aleen,[2] Ryloth,[3] Rodia[4] Taul,[5] and Teth.[6] The sentient Wookiees of Kashyyyk believed seeing a can-cell brought the viewer good luck and based the design of their Raddaugh Gnasp fluttercraft on the odd looking creatures. Can-cell were attracted to the buzzing sound made by Wookiees' Oevvaor jet catamarans and would often congregate at landing pads where the vehicles could be found.[7]

Behind the scenesEdit

The script for Episode III described a scene of Yoda escaping the battlefields of Kashyyyk by riding atop a can-cell, described as "a large alien flying insect."

Also in Revenge of the Sith, a smaller can-cell can be spotted in the Dagobah landing of Yoda in the deleted scene. In the first sweeping shots of Utapau, a similar creature is seen.

Can-cells showed up a few times in The Clone Wars series as well, on Teth, Rodia, Aleen and Ryloth. The creatures made a canon return in Star Wars Special: C-3PO 1: The Phantom Limb.
