Felucia was a colorful, humid jungle planet located in the Felucia system of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories. Located along the Perlemian Trade Route, its important strategic location made it a major battleground throughout the Clone Wars.

Description[edit | edit source]

The jungles of Felucia during the Outer Rim Sieges

Felucia was a remote world in the Felucia system,[source?] overrun with thick, colorful, and humid jungle made up by a unique combination of fungi species,[5] which was punctuated with small farming villages populated by the planet's native Felucians.[7] The world was a hotbed of life,[20] and several non-sentient species also inhabited the world, including Gelagrubs,[source?] jungle rancors, and tee-muss. Despite its perceived insignificance, its important location and resources (which included the healing plant nysillin) led to several conflicts both in orbit and on the surface.[7] The Gossam colonized the planet and helped to industrialize it and used it to advance their own financial enterprise, even persuading the native Felucian tribes into compliance by claiming that the Gossam and Felucians shared a common ancestor.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

Reign of the Republic[edit | edit source]

During the Republic Era, Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn faced trials on Felucia. Despite his commitment to the Jedi Order being severely tested, Jinn ultimately remained loyal to the organization.[21]

Being a key planet for control of the Perlemian Trade Route,[1] Felucia was the location of several battles between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. In 21 BBY, the first battle on the planet saw the Republic forces, led by Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, Plo Koon, dislodged by a Separatist onslaught via blockade.[22]

Hondo Ohnaka's pirate gang terrorized a village on Felucia before being stopped.

Later in the war, Separatist forces destroyed the Republic Felucia Medical Station HCTFF2 present in orbit, deploying a Vulture droid deployment station to safeguard their hold on the system.[7] Around this time, a nysillin farming community was terrorized by Hondo Ohnaka's Florrum-based pirate gang, who stole the settlers' crop harvest. In order to protect themselves, the farmers hired a group of bounty hunters which consisted of Sugi, Embo, Seripas and Rumi Paramita. This group later grew to include stranded Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano. With their assistance, the farmers were able to fend off the pirate band and protect their village.[7]

In 20 BBY, elements of the Republic Army, led by Generals Koon and Skywalker and Commander Tano fought to take a Separatist outpost and holdout on the planet; the assault ended with the elimination of the Separatist, outpost, though it also resulted in Ahsoka Tano's kidnapping by rogue Trandoshan hunters.[6]

Later, during the Outer Rim Sieges of 19 BBY, yet another battle was fought on the planet; this time Jedi Master Aayla Secura, Commander Bly, and their 327th Star Corps were sent to the planet to engage the droid army. However, prior to the commencement of hostilities, Secura was executed by her clones after the enactment of Order 66.[5]

Under the Empire[edit | edit source]

"Felucia, then—in reprisal for the way the Republic left it."
"Of no significance."
―Wilhuff Tarkin and Darth Vader discussing targets along the Perlemian Trade Route[src]

During Berch Teller's campaign, Moff Wilhuff Tarkin suggested Felucia maybe a target for Teller, although Darth Vader disagreed.

After the end of the Clone Wars and the defeat of the Separatists, Felucia fell under the control of Emperor Palpatine's new Galactic Empire. During this period, the Imperial Military maintained a large garrison in the Felucia system. However, the planet was considered to be devastated after the large fighting that occurred during the Clone Wars. Because of this, Moff Wilhuff Tarkin suggested it as a possible target for Berch Teller's insurgents, as a reprisal of sorts for the way the Republic left the planet; however, this possibility was dismissed by Darth Vader, and the rebels would attack Lucazec instead.[19]

Around 10 BBY, Lando Calrissian pulled off a hair-raising smuggling run on the planet which helped pay off his debts[23] with Dryden Vos of Crimson Dawn[24] and afterwards was enjoying downtime at the Lodge on Vandor[23] when he was approached by Tobias Beckett and his gang to transport them to Kessel.[24]

First Order–Resistance war[edit | edit source]

Around 34 ABY, the planet's inhabitants began trading ingredients with the planet Batuu. This allowed Black Spire Outpost's Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo to prepare Felucian Garden Spreads.[8]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Felucia was created for the 2005 film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, the third and final installment of the Star Wars prequel trilogy.[5]

Early concept art for Felucia depicted a world of enormous bulbous plants that seeped antigravitic goo into the skies, which later evolved to become the planet Saleucami (at the time, named "Falucia").[25] Originally designed for an opening montage of Confederacy planets under assault by the Galactic Republic, Felucia would be ultimately used during the Order 66 montage scene, serving as the place of the death of fan favorite Aayla Secura.[5]

Some of the earliest concept art for the 2015 film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens from January 2013 featured Felucia, with images of it being drawn by Dave Filoni, Erik Tiemens, Kurt Kaufman, and Yanick Dusseault showing the Millennium Falcon landing on it by a lake, and a figure with a red lightsaber overlooking the ship. It would appear that the planet was replaced with the world that eventually became Takodana.[26]
