"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[2] planet located in the galaxy's Expansion Region, in grid square O-12 on the Standard Galactic Grid, that 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.[2] During the Clone Wars, the Mud-Jumpers of the Grand Army of the Republic's 224th fought on Mimban[3] in the year 22 BBY.[4] During the reign of the Galactic Empire, Imperial mudtroopers served on the planet.[2]

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,"[3] the fifth episode of the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' first season,[5] which originally aired on October 24, 2008.[6] Originally created as the Bog Planet in the earliest scripts of the 1977 film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope,[7] it first appeared in Splinter of the Mind's Eye, a Star Wars Legends novel written by Alan Dean Foster[8] and released on February 12, 1978.[9] Mimban was later was reused as Dagobah in the 1980 film Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.[7]

Early concept art for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story used Mimban as a setting, before Jedha was developed to replace it.[10] The planet will appear in the upcoming 2018 film Solo: A Star Wars Story.[2]

Since SWCustom-2011 Star Wars: The Clone Wars Chronological Episode Order on StarWars.com (backup link) places "Rookies" between Star Wars: The Clone Wars film and "Bombad Jedi," it can be assumed that the events of "Rookies" also take place in 22 BBY.
