Donovia was a rainy planet where mechanics known as Donovian rainmen maintained signal towers. During the Separatist Crisis, some rainmen who had left Donovia became freighter trampers and traveled on board the AA-9 Freighter-Liner Jendirian Valley as it carried refugees fleeing the crisis from the planet Coruscant to the planet Naboo[1] in 22 BBY.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Donovia was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in the "Starship Fact File" department of the 2015 magazine Star Wars: Build the Millennium Falcon 50,[1] which was written by Tim Veekhoven.[3] The world originated in the Star Wars Legends continuity, where it was first mentioned in the 2002 reference book Star Wars: Attack of the Clones: The Visual Dictionary, which was written by David West Reynolds.[4]
