The Emperor's Tower was a tower located at the uppermost northern hemisphere of the second Death Star that housed the throne room of Emperor Palpatine. Its design was reminiscent of the High Council spire of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. Elevators allowed transport between the top of the tower and the battle station below. The Emperor's Tower was destroyed, along with the second Death Star, during the Battle of Endor.
Behind the scenesEdit
In the earliest incarnation of the story of the 1983 film Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, the Emperor's Tower didn't house the Emperor's Throne Room, but rather the Imperial capital planet Had Abbadon did.
In one of the early ideas for the 2015 film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, pitched by Rick Carter, diving into the Death Star II's remains underwater in a junk planet, Rey was to find a hidden map inside the Emperor's Tower that indicating the location of the remaining Jedi and where Luke Skywalker was hiding.
