Behind the scenesEdit

In the treatment, rough draft, second draft, and third draft of A New Hope in 1974-1975, Alderaan was the name of the capital of the New Galactic Empire. And at that time, it was described as a giant gas planet that resembled Bespin, with a city that resembled Cloud City on it.

The original name in the second draft of A New Hope for what would become Alderaan was Organa Major. Aquilae, Utapau and Ophuchi were also considered as names for worlds partially corresponding to Alderaan.[1]
