Thranta were a large, flying species native to the planet Alderaan. The species was not entirely wiped out during when their homeworld was destroyed by the Galactic Empire, as a population had been transplanted to the gas giant Bespin. On Bespin the thranta lived in a breathable region of the planet's atmosphere where they were ridden through the clouds by only the most daring thrill seekers.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Thranta first appeared in concept art drawn by artist Ralph McQuarrie for Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, which was later reused in The Illustrated Star Wars Universe in 1995 introducing them to the Star Wars Legends continuity.[2] The species was confirmed to be canon by the reference book Ultimate Star Wars, which was released in 2015.[1]
