Netherworld of the Force

Denin and Vila begin their training with Yoda in the Netherworld of the Force.

"An old friend, from the Netherworld of the Force..."

The Netherworld of the Force was the place the souls of Force-sensitives apparently went after their physical bodies died. Qui-Gon Jinn went to this realm after dying, but managed to return from it back to the physical universe as a Force ghost. Anakin Skywalker learned this from Obi-Wan Kenobi after he died upon the Second Death Star. Obi-Wan's spirit departed to this realm after having one final talk with Luke Skywalker in 9 ABY. Yoda was also seen in this realm, where he reunited the recently deceased Vila with her brother Denin and promised he would train both of them.

The Sith Lord Darth Plagueis didn't believe in the Netherworld of the Force as a supernatural phenomenon. He thought this so-called realm was in fact the reaction of a mind "dissipating into the hum of background energy" and accepting its fate. This feeling of peace would only be a normal consequence of the death. Plagueis also thought only the weak would tolerate the loss of their identity.[1]

Chaos was considered to be a region of the netherworld where dark side spirits, such as those of former Dark Lords of the Sith were thought to inhabit upon death.
