Pretty much everybody remembers the great characters in the world of Star Wars. You only have to say the name Luke Skywalker or Chewbacca for incredible memories to be conjured up. However, do you remember where all of these characters called home? Let’s delve into this topic in a little more detail.
Let’s start with the great hero of the Star Wars franchise – Luke Skywalker. Many people will remember his fairly humble beginnings on the planet of Tatooine, which was hot and arid. In fact, it even had two suns shining relentless heat on it! It also appeared again in the prequel trilogy, when Anakin Skywalker was pod racing there. According to Betway, Tatooine seems to be a pretty good place to live, and you’ll start to see why after exploring the other locations in this list, as many aren’t as habitable as this beach-like planet.
The great love interest of Han Solo was Princess Leia, and her home world was Alderaan, which was known for being a place of incredible beauty. Not only this but it was inhabited by some of the loveliest people, which perhaps made it an obvious target for destruction by the Empire. It was not only this fact, but also that it was the (unofficial) home of the Rebel Alliance, which Darth Vader wanted to stop at all costs. Easily the best place to call home in the galaxy until it was destroyed.
While he did not speak our language, this did not stop Chewbacca from entering the hearts of film fans all over the world. It was his friendship and partnership with Han Solo that was particularly memorable and special. The planet that he called home was known as Kashyyyk, and it was full of Wookiees, some of which were not quite as friendly as Chewie! There were also plenty of unusual species there, including massive slugs and huge spiders.
The past of the great Star Wars guru has started to be explored in more detail in some of the more recent TV series. However, when he is first found by Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Back, it is on the swampy planet of Dagobah, where he had spent a long time in exile, improving his mastery over the force.
Perhaps not as beloved as the other characters that we discussed above, JarJar Binks did not exactly endear himself to the fans of the franchise when he first appeared in The Phantom Menace. However, he still remains one of the most memorable out there because of his infamy. His home of Naboo was shared by the rest of the Gungan race as well.
How well did you remember the home of these great Star Wars characters? If there are some that you have forgotten, now is a great opportunity to check out the films once again to immerse yourself in the expertly crafted universe and get lost in the fight between good and evil.
