Behind the scenesEdit
"Ecumenopolis" comes from the Greek "οικουμένη" (oecumen) meaning "world," and "πόλις" (polis) meaning "city," thus translating to "world-city, a city made of the whole world." The Greek city planner Constantinos Doxiadis coined the term in 1967.
The first ecumenopolis seen on-screen within the Star Wars films was Coruscant in The Star Wars Trilogy Special Edition, released in 1997. The term made its first Star Wars appearance in the Legends novel Coruscant Nights I: Jedi Twilight, in 2008. In Star Wars canon, the term was first used in Heir to the Jedi, a novel written by Kevin Hearne and released on March 3, 2015.
