Post-Endor periodEdit

Naboo saw an uprising which apparantly ended with the ousting of the local Imperial garrison by a combined force of Gungans and Naboo's Security Forces.

After the downfall of the Empire, Naboo ambassadors were sent to negotiate terms with the New Republic, in the end, they were signers of the Galactic Constitution. During the New Republic era, the Chommell Sector was represented in the New Republic Senate by Arani Korden and later by a Gungan Senator.

What are the precise sources of this? Although we can probably assume that it was "George's vision" that Naboo was liberated spontaneously in 3 ABY, Naboo having a NR Senator doesn't necessarily mean that the planet had actually been "liberated" by the NR... Doman Beruss and even Mon Mothma represented "occupied" planets, and in the NJO, neither Fyor Rodan nor Relequ A'Kla can be said to have been "properly" elected. I'm sure more digging might find more examples, too... --McEwok

Mid or Outer?Edit

  • Where is Naboo? Mid Rim or Outer Rim? I have seen conflicting information... --Master Starkeiller 14:44, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)
  • Mid Rim, but it isn't far from the border with the Outer Rim. --beeurd 03:12, 14 Oct 2005 (UTC)
    • Yeah, I'm pretty sure the references to it being in the ORT have been superseded. jSarek 08:33, 14 Oct 2005 (UTC)
      • Well, how the hell did they get to the Outer Rim without a hyperdrive? Do Nubian ships have a warp drive? --Master Starkeiller 19:44, 14 Oct 2005 (UTC)
        • The hyperdrive was damaged, not inoperable. It couldn't get them all the way to Coruscant, but it could get them as far as Tatooine.
Ric Olie: "There's not enough power to get us to Coruscant...the hyperdrive is leaking."
Qui-Gon Jinn: "We'll have to land somewhere to refuel and repair the ship."

Display problemEdit

Why the 'points of interest' aren't shown in the info box? they are written correctly in the source MoffRebus 15:44, 30 Dec 2005 (UTC)

  • Never mind, fixed MoffRebus 21:41, 30 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Veruna dating?Edit

Most timelines have Veruna become King 47 or 46 BBY.

Amidala succeeds him 33 BBY.

46-33=13 years!

I thought Naboo monarchs could only rule 8 years max!

  • After Veruna's corrupt reign, they instituted term limits. Thus, Amidala was the first monarch limited to two terms. QuentinGeorge 05:59, 31 Oct 2005 (UTC)

dating explanationEdit

I know most sources say Kwilaan discovered Naboo and Elsinore became wueen 3950, but this must be a rounded figure, it must have been at LEAST one year earlier, since the planet was already alled Naboo 3951 with special guns designed to hunt veermoks acc to KOTOR II. not a big problem really, since ancient dates often use round numbersJustinGann 09:28, 4 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Infinite Empire?Edit

Why? - Sikon [Talk] 10:56, 11 Dec 2005 (UTC)

  • I seonc that question!JustinGann 13:03, 11 Dec 2005 (UTC)
  • I can think of several reasons:
    • 1. Gungans. The "Builders" took slaves from across the Galaxy. The Gungans appeared "primitive" to them (given their lack of interplanetary travel)and thus saw them as easy to control.
    • 2. Plasma. Naboo's high plasma concentrations would make it a target for resources, as Manaan was for its Kolto.
    • 3. Rich ecosystem. Like Onderon, Naboo is rich with wildlife. The Rak could have farmed these animals (such as Fambaas, from which large quantities of meat could be collected due to their large size) to feed their growing population during the rise of their empire.

Thus, they had plenty reason; I wouldn't be surprised if there was a Star Map there somewhere. It would most likely be deep beneath the water's surface. The presence of a dark side artifact such as Star Map would also explain the ferocity of the creatures there (such as the Opee Sea Killer, the Sando Aqua Monster, and the Colo Claw Fish)as it did with Kashyyyk's shadowlands.

Jolee Bindo:"Hmmm...That might explain why its so dangerous down here..." (referring to the Star Map you find in the Kashyyyk Shadowlands)

With no molten core naboo shouldn't be the way it is Edit

I read in the article about naboo that it has no molten core and Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon traveled through the core.

However, if naboo doesn't have a core it shouldn't have a magnetic field. Without a magnetic field radiation from a star would get in and destroy all life on naboo.

Mars lacks a magnetic field which is why it is dried up for the most part.

gaah! Star Wars physics. Seriously though, does a magnetic field depend on a molten core? Any planet has a core - a core just means the interior. --Merbabu 03:24, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

well no. jupiter has a very powerful and very big magnetic core do to the metallic hydrogen in its interior. however, that wouldn't exist in a terrestrial planet. Dumac

  • I agree, without a molten core Naboo would probably be an ice world. At best. At worst, being the "conglomerate" it's described as, it would fall apart. And Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan didn't travel through the core; first, they were moving too slowly, second, Otoh Gunga was quite near to Theed and there would be no need to travel through the core (it would be only necessary if they were on opposite sides of the planet), third, there's an issue of gravity even if it was all water in the core. Seriously, though, the pressure would boil and/or vaporize that water. This is one place where someone desided to insert nonsensical physics for the sake of it. Naboo must have a molten core, regardless of what the databank says. - Sikon [Talk] 10:50, 30 June 2006 (UTC)


Earth is the only world in our solar system with a molten core. Yet it is not the only non-ice planet. As for the pressure, we know that it doesn't boil, and we know that the Earth's core is kept hot by complicated geothermic processes, and without further study of water planets we can assume that the water temperature is kept constant by convection currents or some other thermal exchange. If you want to complain about the physics surrounding star wars, make sure you understand the physics surrounding real life first.
  • Plasma core, lots of chambers and voids between. According to Complete Locations, they did not travel to the core of the planet and come out the other side, but merely through some of the voids in the rocks between Otoh Gunga and Theed. -- Riffsyphon1024 10:58, 30 June 2006 (UTC)


Its possible that the plasma inside the planet generates the magnetic field much like the sun. Also if people thousands of years ahead of us have no explanation i doubt we will ever know. Dumac

Well, I am reading "Inside the Worlds of Star Wars: Episode I The Compleat Guide to the Incredible Locations from the Phantom Menace" and it nothing here says anything about not having a traditional molten core. It says

"Naboo is a bizarre, geographically unique world located along the major galactic trade route near the Outer Rim. The planet's serene surface of sweeping hills and rolling seas is deceptive: beneath it lies a shadowy underworld of winding caverns and tunnels inhabited by gigantic, ferocious sea creatures. This immense labyrinth runs through the entire planet, becoming increasingly rocy and dense in the lower strata. The planets center seethes and bubbles with eruptions of exotic plasmic energy. Over the millennia these eruptions form new caverns and tunnels, and influence the surfance features of the planet such as mountains. The planet's two primary civilizations, the Naboo and the Hungans, rely on this plasma power, although they collect it and use it in different ways."

So it seems to me that Naboo plasma has properties simular to that of magma for us, and with additional properties that allow it to be used as a dependable and effecient energy source greatly valued in the Galaxy. Plasma, or a form of it, seems to form the core of the planet, prehaps in a simular manner as a molten core. I am changing the text to reflect this. Drachenfyre 16:04, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

    • Whoever put Otoh Gunga so close to Theed ought to have paid more attention to the movie's context clues. Perhaps the plasma flows through the crust, and its presence is sufficient. In any case, need I point out the databank entry? Plus, never forget that Star Wars is ultimately fiction. Sort of a space fairy-tale. Not everything has to be totally and completely scientifically viable. It's a world of imagination. The Millenium Falcon was inspired by a burger Lucas took bite out of, for crying out loud. A-wings are shaped kinda liked strawberries. Most of the fighters wouldn't fly in an atmosphere by known principles. Let's try not to ruin Star Wars. ZeldaTheSwordsman 20:39, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Naboo Blockade timeline Edit

How long was the Naboo blockade inplace before Episode I? In other words, how long did it last? 5 yrs? 2 yrs? 8 months? I'm writing a fanfic and need to know how many years BBY the blockade began. Thanks in advance. --Logan Felipe 19:14, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

Monarchs/ GovernorsEdit

Ok, I was thinking we should do some changes to the Known Political Figures section, specifically Other Governors. Since when were the Princesses of Naboo considered governors? Sio Bibble was a governor and I'm not seeing him as a princess. I think we should move the princesses that dont become queen up to Monarchs, or get rid of them all together. After that we should change Other Governors to Other Officials or something and put in Sio Bibble(governor) and peolpe like Hugo Eckener(chief architect) and Lufta Shif(education regent). Any objuction/ comments? Darth Trayus(Trayus Academy) Sith Emblem 18:06, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Formally an Extinct species?Edit

What's with that, under native species? —Jonbacca(Raor) 30px02:22, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

DiscoveryEdit

Can I have verification that Naboo was discovered in 3951 BBY please? I'm taking the Naboo article to be the best source of canon info, but the other pages seem to also favor 3950 BBY and 3900 BBY (the approximate year in which it was colonized). --Kessel 11:11, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
  • RANDOM FACTS: While C3P0 talks to an Ewok, before the assault on the shield generator, I'm confident he says "Naboo" twice. Obi Maul12(Meet a Warrior)(talk to me) 02:01, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Naboo vs GungansEdit

How is that possible?? This is the most doubtful thing about Naboo I have ever read! They were a peaceful nation, they could not fight Gungans!

And for many years before Episode III I could only find the articles, in which it was stated that the Naboo and Gungans have never had a war with each other!

Some contradictions here... Unsigned comment by Neterwan (talk • contribs).

  • Japan's a peaceful nation too. Doesn't mean they've never fought against anyone else. -- I need a name (Complain here) 22:13, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
  • The strange thing is that there was a conflict with Gungans. There was no mentioning of such a conflict before. As for Japan - it's completely different story.

Naboo Female Names Edit

Should it me mentioned that alot of females were named with an "é"? Because Padmé and alot of her handmaidens had that kind of "e" in their name. JediNTT307 20:06, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Third moon: Tasia or unknown? Edit

  • I'm not finding any canon source for Tasia as the third moon of Naboo. It appears in Wikipedia and a bunch of unofficial sources. The fact that Naboo has three moons is canon, so can we get together and do an easter-egg-hunt on this? Any canon source that mentions Naboo's history, especially Elsinore den Tasia. Enochf 18:18, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Assault at Selonia? Edit

Where is Naboo mentioned in this book? Is there any proof?VadersFist666 00:31, May 20, 2010 (UTC)

Could this be a good or featured article? Edit

I think that this is a pretty good page, and it is well written. It could use some work though. Voice you opinion on whether it should be a good or featured article please. (Sith lover 00:43, June 3, 2010 (UTC))

  • In its current state, no, it would absolutely not. You would need to essentially rewrite the entire thing, check every single source that it has appeared in, and restructure the article according to the LG. Then you might be in business. Thefourdotelipsis 00:48, June 3, 2010 (UTC)

Royal Theed Courtyard (or whatever it's called)Edit

In episode one, the courtyard is square with two triumphal arches and buildings on either side. The courtyard is very different in episode 2, when Anakin and Padme travel to the Theed Palace, the courtyard is round and paved, with no triumphal arches (You can find this picture in the Complete Locations). In the book, it says that there is a new courtyard because during the invasion, that part of the city was heavily bombed. Yet at the end of episode 6, the courtyard is back to its original form seen in episode one.

Can someone please explain what happened? are they in two separate places? Because the episode two courtyard is right in front of the Palace (the same location as episode one) Venators 07:37, December 9, 2010 (UTC)

Tasia and Ranchlands Edit

Why are these still being listed? Apparently they are Fanon, so why list them? brightfur 15:38, January 4, 2011 (UTC)

  • If you're referring to your warning, then please re-read. It wasn't deleted as fanon, it was deleted as unsourced. Ranchlands is real. I'll re-create the stub shortly, with an appropriate source and everything. I don't have any sources claiming Tasia to be a moon, (Although there is a queen and a ship). If you want to delete the redlink, refer to this talk page in your edit summary. If you want to create the article, find a published or official blog that legitimately indicates Naboo has a Moon called Tasia. SinisterSamurai 16:42, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
    • Lol, that was not exactly what I meant when I said delete the redlink, but I've taken care of it. SinisterSamurai 20:56, January 5, 2011 (UTC)

Behind the ScenesEdit

"after the clone wars caption Rex and three clones took Ahsoka to Naboo to protect her from order 66 " I don't think this belongs in the article...Korsa3 21:57, January 6, 2011 (UTC)

assassination photo Edit

Can somebody get rid of that photo on the appilina assassination? That gameplay is significant to the player, and is by no means the actual circumstances of her assassination. brightfur 04:03, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

  • I'm almost positive it was used in the StarWars.com Databank, which has been conveniently nerfed to have only 1 image per article. -- I need a name (Complain here) 12:27, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

Naboo's third moon Edit

We know there is a third moon of Naboo right? brightfur (Questions or comments) 05:02, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

  • I'm pretty sure you can see a third one if you watch TPM. SinisterSamurai 09:17, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

Gravity is Standard on Naboo? Edit

Why is gravity standard on Naboo? If it has no true molten core, then it must have a relatively low density compared to Earth. Even if it had a density of 4 g/cm^2, its gravity would be only 68 percent of Earth. Me 18:49, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

  • New discussion is placed at the bottom of the talk page. A canonical source has said that its gravity is standard, and that's what it is whether it makes sense or not. You could add notes to the Behind the scenes section about this discrepancy, citing scientific papers that back up what you say, like in 13,000,000,000 BBY.
