This article is about the gas giant. You may be looking for its moon Alaris Prime, occasionally called Alaris for short.

Alaris was a large gas giant located within the Alaris Expanse in the outer arm of the Kashyyyk system,[2] a part of the Mytaranor sector in the Slice portion of the Mid Rim. The planet had eight moons and held the sixth orbital position around the star Kashyyyk.[1]

The size of Alaris hid one of its small moons, Alaris Prime, from galactic view, meaning that the moon was uncolonized for eons despite its extensive resources.[2] Sometime between 59 BBY and 56 BBY[3] Wookiees from the nearby planet Kashyyyk discovered Alaris Prime and colonized it twenty years later,[2] also claiming the other seven moons of Alaris.[1] The Alaris colonies utilized middle-period Krorral, an architectural style involving domed structures.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

Alaris first appeared in the 2001 LucasArts video game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, in the introduction to the first level of the Wookiee tutorial campaign.[2] The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the planet, along with the rest of the Kashyyyk system, in grid square P-9.[1]

  3. The New Essential Chronology places the colonization of Alaris Prime between 39 BBY and 36 BBY, and the databank in Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds states that the negotiations to colonize the moon took place over a twenty year period after its discovery. The discovery of Alaris Prime must have therefore occurred between 59 BBY and 56 BBY.
