"You're listening to the Grand Army of the Republic broadcast, the Voice of the Outer Rim. This next one goes out to the Mud Jumpers of the 224th, slugging it out on Mimban. Keep your heads down and your seals tight, boys."

Mimban was a swamp planet located in the Circarpous sector of the galaxy's Expansion Region that was the homeworld of several intelligent species, including the Mimbanese. For many decades, it was the site of conflict between its natives and mining interests attracted by the planet's deep hyperbaride mineral deposits. During the Clone Wars, the Mud Jumpers of the Grand Army of the Republic's 224th Division helped the Mimbanese Liberation Army repel the invading Separatist Droid Army. Following the rise of the Galactic Empire, the 224th returned to Mimban as part of the Imperial Army to subjugate the Mimbanese and ensure Imperial energy mining operations continued unabated.

DescriptionEdit

Mimban was located in the Circarpous sector of the galaxy's Expansion Region,[2] in grid square O-12 on the Standard Galactic Grid.[1] Located in a remote star system,[2] the planet was connected to Attahox and Gyndine by a hyperspace route.[1] Its atmosphere's thunderstorms made the planet's sky perpetually overcast, while its marshlands were always draped in mist.[6]

HistoryEdit

During the Clone Wars, the Mud Jumpers of the Grand Army of the Republic's 224th Division fought on Mimban[7] in the year 22 BBY.[8] Controlled by the Galactic Empire,[5] Imperial swamp troopers served on the planet.[6] Han Solo was a serviceman on Mimban,[9] and later befriended Chewbacca whilst the Wookiee was in Imperial captivity on Mimban.[10]

Behind the scenesEdit

"Bog Planet—We used it in the [Foster] book and was one of the original ideas [in the earliest Star Wars scripts]. It could be the place where Luke Skywalker learns."
George Lucas[src]

Mimban was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in "Rookies,"[7] the fifth episode of the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' first season,[11] which originally aired on October 24, 2008.[12] Originally created as the Bog Planet in the earliest scripts of the 1977 film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope,[13] it first appeared in Splinter of the Mind's Eye, a 1978 Star Wars Legends novel written by Alan Dean Foster.[14] Concepts for Mimban were later reused for Dagobah in the 1980 film Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.[13]

Early concept art for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story used Mimban as a setting, before Jedha was developed to replace it.[15] The planet appeared in the 2018 film Solo: A Star Wars Story.[6]
