"Please. Get me off this exhaustingly polite rock."
Archex, to Vi Moradi[4]

Cerea was a planet[3] located in the galaxy's Mid Rim.[1] It was a paradise[5] largely unspoiled by the ravages of technology.[6] It was the homeworld of the Cereans,[3] including the Jedi Master Ki-Adi-Mundi, who served as a member of the Jedi High Council during the waning days of the Galactic Republic.[7] Prior to being arrested on the Five Points system, Jyn Erso spent time bouncing around the Mid Rim on planets such as Cerea and Coyerti before settling on Takodana for almost a year.[8] Cerea was home to big bipedal birds known as aryx, which the Rebel communications specialist Kidi Aleri rode.[2]

The native Cereans were very protective of their homeworld's ecology, and thus only allowed off-world visitors and immigrants to enter and reside city-sized structures called Outsider Citadels. One such structure was Asphodar 3.[4]


During the Cold War and the subsequent First Order-Resistance War, the Resistance ran what they called a "peaceful and nature-led deprogramming protocol" in the "beautiful and ancient forests" of Cerea, meant to rehabilitate defectors and prisoners from the First Order and counter the FO's ideological "brainwashing". Participants practiced daily meditation, stretching, and dance; ate an entirely plant-based diet; and abstained from most uses of technology. One such participant was First Order defector Archex, formerly Captain Cardinal.[4]

In 34 ABY,[9] the Resistance spy Vi Moradi picked up Archex from Asphodar 3 to accompany her on a mission to establish a Resistance base on the planet Batuu on the edge of Wild Space.[4]

  9. Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire begins concurrent with the events of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, then jumps four months ahead to the Resistance establishing its presence on Batuu, and concludes with an epilogue set several weeks later, when the First Order occupies the planet and the Battle of Batuu begins. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is also set during the occupation of Batuu and depicts the Battle of Batuu via the attraction Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. The Star Wars Book dates the Battle of Batuu to 34 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which corresponds to 34 ABY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary also places the Battle of Batuu six months after The Force Awakens, which Galactic Atlas dates to 34 ABY. Therefore everything within Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and any related tie-in media depicting the Battle of Batuu, or set between The Force Awakens and the battle, must also occur in 34 ABY.
