starting with return of the jedi? Edit

Wait??? " George Lucas adopted Coruscant beginning with the 1997 re-release of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi showing scenes on Coruscant of a jubilant population overthrowing the Empire." This is wrong... isnt it? I could swear that the scene with celebrations on coruscant was added in a version AFTER that, there have been multiple remasterings of the original trilogy, and that was not in it... I thought that this addition was only added in the same version where they changed the ghost. Because isnt it a montage of scenes featuring worlds from the prequel trilogy? I am darn certain there is no version that features the Coruscant Celebrations that was released before REvenge of the sith... as well they dont speak the name "coruscant" in it anyways... also it uses recycled CGI assets from the prequels. ralok (talk) 22:11, July 19, 2014 (UTC)

  • Coruscant was added for the 1997 Special Edition. The scene was later tweaked for the 2004 DVD release to add the Jedi Temple and Galactic Senate. The full montage of planets is Bespin, Tatooine, Naboo, and Coruscant. Naboo was the one added for the 2004 release. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:13, July 19, 2014 (UTC)
    • That is so darn confusing... okay my point about it still not being called coruscant by name still stands... I think. ralok (talk) 22:16, July 19, 2014 (UTC)
      • I agree, the wording could be be clarified. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:19, July 19, 2014 (UTC)
  • Isn't the 2004 release non canon , because the wiki says so. If the Corusant celebration of the Rebel Alliance Is canon, then why doesn't it ever appear in the movie ? I have it , and it doesn't appear.Tacolyte3 (talk) 03:10, October 10, 2014 (UTC)Tacolyte3Tacolyte3 (talk) 03:10, October 10, 2014 (UTC)

Imperial Center Edit

The Rebellion Begins makes a reference to Imperial Center. "Humans and nonhumans of a dozen species that Ezra couldn't name hurried between terminals that offered flights to such glamorous worlds as Corellia, Ryloth, and Imperial Center, where one huge metropolis covered the entire planet." Imperial Center is Coruscant and Legends and I think it's fairly obvious from the "huge metropolis" thing that it's Coruscant being said here. However, the book does not specifically state they are one and the same. Thoughts? ProfessorTofty (talk) 00:50, November 19, 2014 (UTC)

  • From what I can tell, the excerpt you cited it the only occurrence of "Imperial Center" in The Rebellion Begins. However, the book also refers to Coruscant as "Imperial City:" "A return to the Temple would not help, even if he wanted to go. Nothing of it remained on the world now known as Imperial City. Not a museum, not a plaque, not a mark. The Empire had reduced all its brick and steel to dust." Additionally, the 6th chapter of Tarkin is called "Imperial Center," and it takes place on Coruscant. --Lelal Mekha Old Republic military symbol (Audience Room) 15:45, November 20, 2014 (UTC)
    • Gotcha. I think that's more than enough to say that Coruscant and Imperial Center/City are one-and-the-same then, yes? ProfessorTofty (talk) 17:28, November 20, 2014 (UTC)

Binary System? Edit

It seems like the celebration scene in RotJ shows Coruscant. If so, the final shot (a screenshot is on this page) appears to show that Coruscant has two suns. Is the same true of shots in the prequels? 15:45, December 18, 2014 (UTC)

  • Those appear to be moons. After all, the scene takes place at night. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:32, December 18, 2014 (UTC)

Ancient History? Edit

Ancient history including the Taung? I dont think i am going crazy but I seem to remember this page containing much pre-movie infirmation including the ancient history of the planet and conflict between the Zhell and Taung peoples. Please correct me if I am wrong Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

Is Coruscant gone? Edit

In star wars: the force awakens. Didn't the "Death Star" destroy corusant? Unsigned comment by Lonewolfgames (talk • contribs).

Orbital Period? Edit

The article says that "Coruscant orbited relatively far from its small sun, varying from 207 to 251 million kilometers" and that "There were 24 hours in a Coruscant day, and 365 days in a Coruscant year". This isn't consistent, at least if the hour was 3600 seconds, as it is on Earth. Taking the mean distance as 229 million km, or about 1.5 AU, the period would be about 670 Earth days if Coruscant's star was as massive as the Sun. But Coruscant's star is "small" according to the article. The orbital velocity goes as the square root of the mass, presumably Coruscant's orbital velocity was somewhere between 70%-90% Earth's, giving a period of between 744 and and 957 Earth days.Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

  • I'm afraid that's just the way it is, there's not much we can do about it. -- Dr. Porter Resistance starbird (Talk|Contribs) 00:05, January 12, 2017 (UTC)
  • Or, based on what we do have (the length of the year), Coruscant's sun would need to be about 3 times as massive as Earth's. Unless, of course, they have a different definition of an "hour", or that they are in an alternate universe with different laws of physics. The latter would explain practically every physical inconsistency... RedPanda25 (talk) 22:07, March 11, 2017 (UTC)
  • I did the math here. Apparently if we accept the large size, it would be about 132 times brighter than our sun in absolute magnitude, and appear 56 times brighter from their planet. Also, if we're assuming hours are different, is there any particular reason to assume kilometers are the same? Sure we base days on something completely based on Earth, but kilometers are based on our history which is every bit as unique. 2601:204:CF01:36E1:42B8:9AFF:FEB1:8873 07:28, February 14, 2018 (UTC)


1 Trillion population is way too low. Given the planet description with over 5000 levels, the population should be above 50 trillion. No way it is just 120 times earth's population. Unsigned comment by Barbarosa1917 (talk • contribs).

  • Numbers in Star Wars can be very odd sometimes, but that's what the source says. Logic does not determine Canon. 1358 (Talk) 18:56, September 9, 2017 (UTC)


I'm wondering how a population of Coruscant fed itself prior to the hyperdrive. Coruscant was settled 200,000BBY, it was urbanized to the point they were building their cities over top other buildings by 95,000 BBY, hyperdrive wasn't reverse engineered until 25,000 years BBY so was there intensive agriculture on the planet then?
