The Emperor's Tower was a tower located at the uppermost northern hemisphere of the second Death Star[5] that housed the throne room of Emperor Palpatine.[1] Its design was reminiscent of the High Council spire of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant.[6] Elevators allowed transport between the top of the tower and the battle station below.[3] The Emperor's Tower was destroyed, along with the second Death Star, during the Battle of Endor.[1]

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.[7]

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.[8]
