Possums were bipedal, reptilian creatures hailing from the fourth moon of Yavin Prime. They possessed devices resembling goggles over their eyes.[1] Luke Skywalker, shortly before assaulting the Galactic Empire's Death Star with the Rebel Alliance, encountered these creatures while exploring the Massassi ruins on the jungle moon.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Possums appeared in the 1987 Japanese Star Wars game, although the game's canonicity is ambiguous.[2] Their name was revealed in the Japanese language manual of the game, in which it was rendered as ポッサム (possamu) in katakana syllabary.[1]
