Can-cell were a species of flying insect found of a number of planets across the galaxy, including Kashyyyk,[2] Aleen,[3] Ryloth,[4] Rodia,[5] Taul,[6] and Teth.[7] The sentient Wookiees of Kashyyyk believed seeing a can-cell brought the viewer good luck and based the design of their Raddaugh Gnasp fluttercraft on the odd-looking creatures. Can-cell were attracted to the buzzing sound made by Wookiees' Oevvaor jet catamarans and would often congregate at landing pads where the vehicles could be found.[8] Some residents of the planet Batuu raised native can-cell to become pets or for other reasons.[9]

Behind the scenesEdit

The script for Episode III described a scene of Yoda escaping the battlefields of Kashyyyk by riding atop a can-cell, described as "a large alien flying insect."

Also in Revenge of the Sith, a smaller can-cell can be spotted in the Dagobah landing of Yoda in a deleted scene. The first sweeping shots of Utapau show a similar creature.

Can-cells showed up a few times in The Clone Wars series as well, on Teth, Rodia, Aleen and Ryloth. The creatures made a canon return in Star Wars Special: C-3PO 1.
