- "A ship approaching Kessel typically does so from Formos, where you'll find all sorts of smugglers waiting for charters. Or at least that's what they say they're doing."
- ―Midnight's book
Formos was an astronomical object located in the Outer Rim Territories, in the grid square T-10 of the Standard Galactic Grid. Formos was connected to the location known as Aeneid by the Pabol Sleheyron hyperspace route, while the Triellus Trade Route linked it to the planets Eadu and Kubindi.
At some point between 10 BBY and 3 ABY, the Corellian barkeep known as Midnight mentioned Formos in a book he was writing. In the book, Midnight stated that smuggler starships usually traveled to the planet Kessel from Formos. Midnight also claimed that pilots waiting there to be hired to make the run spent their downtime playing the sabacc card game and getting into trouble.
Behind the scenesEdit
Originally introduced as a planet in the Star Wars Legends continuity, Formos made its first appearance in Way of the Wookiee!, a three-part 1979 comic story written by Archie Goodwin, penciled by Carmine Infantino and Pablo Marcos, and published in issues 94 through 96 of Marvel Comics' Star Wars Weekly series.

- ↑ Solo: A Star Wars Story: Tales from Vandor is presented as an in-universe book, which mentions Lando Calrissian losing the Millennium Falcon to Han Solo in a game of sabacc, as well as Calrissian later visiting Cloud City prior to becoming its Baron Administrator. The former event is depicted in Solo: A Star Wars Story, the main part of which Solo: A Star Wars Story The Official Guide dates to the ninth year after the formation of the Galactic Empire, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas in turn dates to 19 BBY. In addition, Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back depicts Calrissian as holding the title of Baron Administrator and is set in 3 ABY, according to Galactic Atlas. Using this information, it can be deduced that the book presented in Tales from Vandor must have been written sometime between 10 BBY and 3 ABY.
