Endor, also called Tana by the Ewoks native to one of its moons, was a gas giant located in the Endor system,[1] a binary[2] star system positioned in the Moddell sector of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories. Endor acted almost like a third sun to the moons with its clouds of hydrogen reflecting light.[1] Located in grid square H-16 on the Standard Galactic Grid, it was connected to Cerea and Bakura by a hyperspace route.[3] The planet was orbited by nine major moons,[1] the largest of which[4] was known as the Forest Moon of Endor. The ocean moon of Kef Bir was also one of Endor's moons. Additionally, 48 "sub-lunar" objects orbited the planet.[1]

Before the destruction of the New Republic, the Galactic Senate attempted to rename the planet Tana, in honor of the Ewoks.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Endor was originally created for the 1983 film Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi,[5] where it appeared as a distant orb, labeled "Planet Endor" by special effects storyboards, above its Forest Moon, not large enough to be definitively labeled a planet.[6]

In the earliest drafts of Return of the Jedi, the Forest Moon of Endor, then known as the "green moon," instead orbited the Imperial capital world of Had Abbadon,[7] which would later evolve into Coruscant.[8]
