Endor was a gas giant located in the Endor system, a binary star system positioned in the Moddell sector of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories. Located in grid square H-16 on the Standard Galactic Grid, it was connected to Cerea and Bakura by a hyperspace route. The planet was orbited by nine moons, the largest of which was known as the Forest Moon of Endor.
Behind the scenesEdit
Endor was originally created for the 1983 film Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, where it appeared as a distant orb, labeled "Planet Endor" by special effects storyboards, above its Forest Moon, not large enough to be definitively labeled a planet.
In the earliest drafts of Return of the Jedi, the Forest Moon of Endor, then known as the "green moon," instead orbited the Imperial capital world of Had Abbadon, which would later evolve into Coruscant.
