Harbin-re was a planet[2] in the Harbin-re system of the Inner Rim.[1] During the Imperial Period, it was famous for its Neoclassical operas, of which Galactic Emperor Palpatine was a fan.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

Harbin-re was introduced in Paul Sudlow's article "Galaxywide NewsNets," published in the Star Wars Adventure Journal 5 (1995). The article did not elaborate upon the subject past its name and connection to opera, and it was not until the publication of The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia (2008) that Harbin-re was confirmed to be a planet. The Essential Atlas (2009) included a listing for the Harbin-re system in its index, clarifying the general location of the world.
