Behind the scenesEdit
Manaan, along with the native Selkath, first appeared in the 2003 Star Wars Legends video game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Manaan became a part of Star Wars canon after it was mentioned as Mantu's homeworld in his entry in the now-discontinued Encyclopedia, an entry that is also present in the Encyclopedia's replacement, the Databank. Mantu was a Selkath bounty hunter introduced in "The Box", an episode from the fourth season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Manaan's status as a planet and homeworld of the Selkath species was restored by its entry in the Databank.
