Rakata Prime was a planet[3] located in the grid area G-11[2] of the galaxy's Unknown Regions.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Rakata Prime was first depicted on a map of the galaxy created for Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary,[4] a reference book for the film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, both released on December 18, 2015.[5][6] The aforementioned map was revealed prior to the book's release, however, through an article by Empire magazine on November 26, 2015.[7] Through his official Twitter account, the Lucasfilm Story Group's Pablo Hidalgo, author of The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary, confirmed that the location Rakata Prime labeled on the map was indeed considered a planet within canon.[3] The planet later appeared in Star Wars: The Force Awakens Beginner Game,[2] a 2016 roleplaying game which focuses on the characters and factions from The Force Awakens.[8] Rakata Prime was seen on another galaxy map included in the game, revealing the planet's grid coordinates.[2]

Rakata Prime was originally created for the Star Wars Legends continuity, and appeared in the video game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic,[9] released on July 15, 2003,[10] as the "Unknown World." The planet was the location of an ancient race known as the Rakata, beings who once ruled the ancient Infinite Empire and built a superweapon called the Star Forge.[9] The 2005 reference book The New Essential Chronology introduced the name Rakata Prime,[11] while the 2006 novel Darth Bane: Path of Destruction introduced the name Lehon.[12] In 2016,[13] a member of the Rakata species[14] made an appearance in the canon comic book Poe Dameron 7: The Gathering Storm.[13]
